Digital transformation is driven by the ability to better connect all aspects of the laboratory - devices, consumables, workflows, data, and people - to accelerate science and increase laboratory productivity. Smart instruments and consumables are enabling laboratories to improve instrument and consumable usage, reducing downtime and optimizing the use of laboratory supplies and capacity. Data analytics solutions are connecting workflows and data across different methods and instruments to enable scientists to derive insight from their data and make informed business decisions. To take advantage of these recent advancements and those yet to come, organizations need to connect the laboratory and make data accessible to those who need it.
