Hi, I would like to understand more on what is meant by the application of IoT in the lab. From what I understand of it it could only help you in the metrology area e.g. checking calibration, predict certaian maintenance etc..Any thoughts?

Hi Corne, my own take on the application of IoT for the lab is a bit broader than simply micro devices. I see it in application for all types of instrument and lab device integration and automation and then when paired with AI, I can see automated QC and worflow management. I see it as something that is not revolutionary for the lab but something that can implemented in an evolutionary way (a bit at a time as it makes sense).

From what all I read in industry blogs and discussions, it seems that IoT is very big in Oil and Gas and in healthcare but not much is mentioned about its applications to the lab. Oil and Gas has been using IoT longer than the word has been around. Healthcare has embraced it in the area of Point of Care Testing (PoCT).

In my company, we have developed an IoT application that we use for interfacing to all medical instruments and other lab equipment.

Thanks. However O&G it is beyond Lab boundary and in Pharma or other Industry I was looking for a Case study in Laboratory which I am yet to have. However Healthcare I agree with you. Curious to know about your application of IOT and curious to know what all the Instrument it can connect other than healthcare instrument.

For instruments other than healthcare, it is generally quite simple as compared to healthcare. Healthcare is much more complex and real time and is well suited for IoT. Non-healthcare instruments we find to be the easiest to interface. We use the same IoT software for both cases but in the case of file based instruments we basically ftp and parse the files for import into the LIMS.

We are always on the lookout for better tools to do the job. We have started playing with node-red. It looks very exciting has some great possibilities for lab IoT: https://nodered.org/
