Webinar: Robots in the lab – Learn how automation can streamline your workflow

"Have you ever been at the lab bench mindlessly performing a repetitive task, wondering if a robot would be better placed for the job? Despite many industries having utilised full automation of workflows for decades, the use of robots in chemistry laboratories is a relatively new domain. Yet, automating laboratories can save time and money by optimising reactions, improving efficiency, as well as manipulating large datasets, leaving you with valuable time for other research assignments. After all, machines don’t need coffee or comfort breaks!

There’s a lot to think about, though, when it comes to setting up an automated workflow or integrating robotics into established laboratory routines. Can robotic lab assistants cope with the wide range of duties required for laboratory research, some of which demand adaptive and analytical skills? And how much does it cost, in time and money, for you to set-up a fully automated routine?

During this webinar we look to the future of automation in the lab and what it means here and now. Throughout the hour you will meet chemists who have successfully incorporated lab automation into their research, working alongside robots assigned to a wide range of laboratory roles. You will discover how and why these scientists decided to embark on incorporating automation into their laboratory and learn about the challenges they faced along the way."

Webinar: Diversity in clinical research – Where we are today, and can data and technology play a role to improve diversity

"To advance health equity it is critical to ensure participation of individuals from diverse backgrounds take part in clinical research. Participants in clinical trials should represent the patients that will ultimately use the medical products. Unfortunately, participants from racial and ethnic minorities are often underrepresented in clinical research.

This interactive panel discussion featuring leaders from across the life sciences industry will explore how the lack of diversity impacts clinical research today, current barriers hindering more equitable access to and participation in trials, recent approaches that have been taken to try to overcome these barriers and what role data and technology can play to improve diversity.

Learning Objectives:
- Understand the current state of clinical research and how the lack of diversity impacts it and healthcare more broadly
- Understand the current barriers hindering equitable access to and participation in clinical trials
- Hear real examples of approaches taken to advance this effort
- Learn what role data and technology can play to improve diversity"

Webinar: Next-Gen Lab Informatics Part 1: Transforming Research with New ELN Technologies

"As most labs have moved away from paper record-keeping, electronic lab notebooks (ELNs) have become the de facto solution for storing experimental data. But scientists are realizing that an ELN can be much more than just a repository for unstructured experimental records, and are using ELNs as both the core repository for project knowledge, and the starting point for a myriad of workflows.

Additionally, the different requirements from research to process development and QA/QC have often led to the use of different ELNs across these domains in a single company. But the increased flexibility of a next-gen ELN means a single solution can be used across the product development lifecycle, ensuring consistency in data and enabling greater collaboration. An ELN that is integrated into a wider lab informatics solution multiplies these benefits, creating seamless workflows and a single source of truth for laboratory data."
