Typical informatics systems and instrument analysis data don’t provide the full context for your protocols and methods. With recent focus on digitalization to enable productivity/ quality improvements and decision making, it is critical to get the complete context for these results. A fully connected lab is essential to enable this but every lab faces challenges in achieving this with plethora of protocols and instruments, instrument software and applications in place. In this talk, we will discuss the typical challenges faced and an approach to overcome these challenges through our accelerator solution.
