In clinical diagnostic laboratories, end-to-end testing of complex LIMS workflows is a critical part of the laboratory validation process. Performing these tests manually takes a Herculean effort. That’s why we developed a reliable and cost-effective way to automate the testing of Clarity LIMS workflows. [Read More]
Technological innovation is affecting all aspects of our lives, and corporate training has not been immune to the disruption. In today’s rapidly changing business environment, keeping employees up-to-date on newly implemented systems and/or market changes is a significant challenge for many firms. [Read More]
Many laboratories compare analytical results to known limits to determine if results are within specification. These specification limits can be based on the standard deviation calculated from previous known results. As the standard deviation can change over time limits may need to be recalculated.

This brief journal article published in Scientific Bulletin examines how organizations can mitigate the risks of implementing artificial intelligence (AI) and other Industry 4.0 technologies into manufacturing centers, particularly in regards to cybersecurity. Maurice Dawson of the Illinois Institute of Technology first gives a brief introduction on AI and cybersecurity, highlighting that "data science management" incorporates important technology skills, while also highlighting that the recognition of the cybersecurity component of data science management is perhaps lacking. Dawson then discusses the trend of Industry 4.0 and the promise it holds for manufacturers, while also addressing the ever-changing environment and the risks that must be highlighted within it. Noting the importance of manufacturing with the U.S. in particular, the author concludes that "as AI becomes increasingly prominent in critical industries such as manufacturing, it is essential to ensure that proper security controls are in place to thwart any possible threat, whether internal or external."
This is a Rochester Institute of Technology-created course that is released on the edX platform. The introductory eight-week course is designed to help learners "learn cybersecurity fundamentals, including how to detect threats, protect systems and networks, and anticipate potential cyber attacks." The course is free to take. A verified certificate of completion from RIT is available afterwards for $249 USD. Two sessions are currently available: January 5 to March 2, and March 30 to May 25.
