Data Interface

API integrates the secure sharing of data to your LIMS, ELN, QMS, or other software databases.


Customer: A major pharmaceutical company contracting with Elemental Machines’ lab equipment partner, PerkinElmer, deployed Elemental Machines’ usage platform on 20 devices for 30 days.

Results: The lab removed, relocated, or canceled service contracts for 34 assets, saving over $40,000.

View equipment usage across your lab in real-time and over time.


“[Lab Scheduler] has a system where you can plot data points by marking utilization and then seeing exactly when they reserved it for how much time they reserved it. That is not accurate — that is just your reservation type. So, combining that with an Element-U where you can actually see and track the time from sash open and close. That helped our team get a clear picture of actual usage; [a team member] did reserve for this time, but [they] did not use it for the entire time.”
