The world of the laboratory is undergoing transformation

Against the backdrop of increasing digitization, various processes and structures have to be reconsidered in the laboratory of the future. Network-capable laboratory devices with intelligent and smart functions, complex holistic automation concepts and efficient interface solutions are indispensable for the start of the new era. The continuous availability of gigantic data volumes places new demands on data handling and secure data storage.

Special show Digital Transformation

Discover the future of digitalization at the lab

The premiere of the Digital Transformation Forum at analytica 2018 established a new crowd puller for both visitors and exhibitors alike. In 2020, the action area and live interactions will be added to the forum area to implement the completely new concept of the special show “Digital Transformation” in cooperation with TU Dresden and GWT-TUD GmbH.

More than 20 companies and start-ups, such as Olympus, LAUDA and Merck, demonstrate together and across individual vendors typical analysis processes in the laboratory with the help of innovative products and software. Visitors can experience and perform the workflows live at the respective hands-on stations, as well as talk directly to the exhibitors.
