An annual European conference on medical informatics (Medical Informatics Europe)
"2020 & 2021 have shown us how important digital solutions have become to enable collaboration and to work remotely. With less access to the lab and your colleagues, the move to digital tools is even more important.
In this On Demand webinar you will be given an introduction to where the digital lab space can become a reality for you and how to begin your digital transformation.
We will cover the areas where digitization will improve your workflow and sample safety, giving you more time to focus on what is important. Your Science!"
"Developed by Clariant, Sunliquid is an innovative and sustainable technology used to produce bio-ethanol. In this hour-long webinar, Clariant Group Leader Benjamin Fürst will introduce the process and describe how he and his team use modelling techniques to optimise fermentation processes.
Resources in process development for fermentation processes are always limited, often because of time constraints or the limited access to fermentation vessels. For this reason, optimal usage of the collected data is of paramount importance.
In this session, you will see how to maximise insights and understanding of the process by modelling data collected offline (like product titer and parameters of downstream processing) and online sensor data (such as pO2) in context of the Functional Data Explorer platform in JMP. The modelling approach is based on constant and functional factors and responses. Because of the limited design space, the new extrapolation control for the profiler plays an important role."
"Olivier Le Deuff explains the scope of the concept of hyperdocumentation coined by Paul Otlet in 1934. Hyperdocumentation is described by the Belgian bibliographer as the ultimate goal of documentation. The concept of hyperdocumentation is as much an idea as an object that originated from the continuous amplification of two connected trends: the multiplication of documents since the beginning of the twentieth century, and the increase of analytical capabilities meant to decipher these documents. As envisioned by Otlet, these processes amounted in the fusion of documents and instruments leading the way to new formats and devices that open new possibilities in terms of document consultation and manipulation. The aim of the talk is to show the current relevance of the concept of hyperdocumentation and the associated epistemological, technical and ethical issues. The talk will look at both the historical context surrounding Paul Otlet and current hyperdocumentary devices."
"Artificial intelligence (AI) is currently a buzzword across almost all scientific disciplines and has the potential to revolutionize diagnostic approaches in inherited diseases. But when it comes to variant curation, is AI capable of replacing human expertise? A new study by Stanford University compares data quality from their Automatic VAriant evidence DAtabase (AVADA) to the Human Gene Mutation Database (HGMD).
The results show that expert curation by variant scientists is irreplaceable in the field of clinical genomics, with HGMD recovering nearly 40% more disease-associated mutations than the AI-powered AVADA.
In this webinar, we demonstrate the depth and breadth of HGMD through a series of use-cases where the manually curated database outperforms AI solutions ..."
"The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the potential role that wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) can play in assessing aggregate community health. However, efforts to translate SARS-CoV-2 gene copy numbers obtained from wastewater samples into meaningful community health indicators are nascent. This work will highlight two efforts to promote the use of WBE: 1) comparison of SARS-CoV-2 wastewater measurements during a low-frequency and a high-frequency clinical testing period and 2) adoption of automated, high-throughput methods to enable state-wide monitoring in Kansas."
"This session will provide an overview of the current drug trends in drug-impaired driving and Medical Examiner casework. Several case histories will be used to detail the analytical and legal challenges as well as various drugs’ effects on human performance.
A certificate of participation will be granted to each participant based on 1.0 contact hours of instruction toward credit."
"The CDC estimates that nearly 48 million people fall ill and 3000 people die annually as a result of foodborne illness. Listeria is a concern due to the high percentage of fatalities that occur as a result of contracting Listeriosis. Many of these cases are preventable. During this virtual event, experts will discuss tangible best practices in Listeria detection, mitigation and control."

"Many of us have felt vibrations in a building. For example, you may have been sitting quietly working away at your desk, and a group of employees walks by. You felt the subtle vibration of the group as they passed, and it may have distracted you or stopped you from your work. This is similar to how vibration affects lab equipment. The vibration is transferred to the equipment, changing the testing or processes and even drastically affecting the outcomes.
Similarly, when working in an office environment, unwanted and startling noises can distract your concentration and can significantly impede your productivity. This also affects users in labs and, in many cases, impedes the function of noise-sensitive equipment, including very sensitive microscopes. Furthermore, labs with vivaria usually also need strict noise control to ensure that environmental factors do not disrupt the subjects’ behavior.
As the industry moves increasingly toward compact robotic automation, vibration control and treatment of acoustics are becoming a standard operating procedure in labs. In this webinar, lab design experts will weigh in on how to mitigate these issues and will provide strategies to improve and protect research outcomes."
"Invisible revenue cycle compliance and performance threats are the largest risks to a healthcare organization’s financial integrity. If undetected, these lead to poor payer relationships, payer recoupments, lower revenue, fines, audits, adverse contractual agreements, and, unfortunately, low industry reputation. The sooner you detect these threats, the less damage they can do.
Thankfully, recent innovations in the healthcare financial space have leveled the playing field in favor of laboratory executives. With the real-world application of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in the medical laboratory revenue cycle, laboratory executives can detect compliance and revenue performance threats in near-real-time, protecting their revenue performance and compliance, all while keeping existing investments in billing systems and revenue cycle management (RCM) partners. This may come as welcome news to laboratory executives who are caught in a costly reactive approach to lab claim denials, rejections, appeals, and other anomalies.
A new complimentary webinar from Dark Daily brings case examples of revenue management improvements gained from AI/ML in diagnostic laboratory billing, including compliance, operational key performance indicators, and actionable executive reporting. The free webinar will feature revenue cycle leaders who have leveraged advanced AI/ML to identify revenue performance and compliance opportunities, while proactively addressing and remediating financial issues that all labs face."
Selecting the right Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) to meet the complex needs of your scientific laboratory can be a challenging task. There is a clear and present need to move from paper-based to paperless but that is just the beginning. Its important to understand the goals for this transformation – the greater vision that will define future success for the business.
