Date: 20 January


Time: 3PM London/10AM New York

Building the Lab of the Future is more than gathering all the latest technologies in a lab. It means creating a connected ecosystem taking in consideration every level from personnel to informatic architecture.

Therefore, our panel discussion will shed light on important questions:

Is automation a parallel competitive approach to digital lab assistants or can they work together in synergy?
What if scientists are not in the lab, does it still help?
Why should we consider digital lab assistants if we have an ELN-LIMS system already?

Join our virtual roundtable and learn how voice assistants can:
- Allow data flows between scientists and databases
- Enable lab automation
- Support remote work and upskilling
