Building smart labs now for the future
Life Science facilities are facing increasingly difficult challenges in today’s environment. The demands of meeting changing regulations, improving efficiency, increasing speed to market, protecting workers’ health and safety, and reducing risk are forcing laboratory owners and managers to examine their building systems and operating procedures from a fresh perspective.
Today’s existing laboratories have significant opportunities to enhance researcher safety and wellbeing, reduce their utility consumption, improve sustainability and manage costs using the right technological innovations to position themselves with smart lab infrastructure for tomorrow’s modern scientists.
Defining the Smart Lab
Smart lab infrastructure implements a holistic, digital optimization strategy that begins with a Green Lab Solution (GLS) approach and is based on data, predictive equipment maintenance and digital lab services to improve lab performance and occupant comfort, and foster future innovative research and development.
