SiLA enables the Lab of the Future through free and open systems communication and data standards. Whether you are a scientist, an integrator, or a supplier, we help future-proof labs, offering end-to-end integration by connecting instruments to informatics systems, lab systems to each other, and people with their data.

Our Vision

Enabling technology so you can run your lab.

Setting up a lab is a breeze.
Nobody likes lab setup so the least we can do is make it easy. By eliminating custom interfacing, we make integration for any device or data system quick and simple.

Build the lab you want and we’ll sustain it.
As your lab needs change, re-use your tools across different workflows and trust that your data integrity and flow will be robust.

We’ll save you a fortune, not cost you one.
SiLA standards help reduced overall cost of ownership including initial setup, operating costs and cost due to system changes or upgrades.

 We’ll benefit you in the short term. And in the long term, too.
Beyond facilitating lab setup, SiLA enables data retention by storing information in a standard, consistent format for later processing.

Not a scientist? We help system suppliers too!
Whether you expose the SiLA interface to your customers or not, re-using SiLA components within your devices and software reduces development costs, time, and risk.
