The phrase “The whole is greater than the sum of all it’s parts” is never more relevant than when considered alongside the goal of laboratory digitalisation. It is only by integrating laboratory devices and services can you truly achieve the benefits that are on offer. Our vision at SiLA is to digitalise R&D laboratories while allowing you to continue to focus on the science. This means that the integration must be easy and fast. And the best way to do this is to use standards.
We have recently worked with @HDC (Hit Discovery Constance), @Siobra, @KNIME and @Biosero, a group of Biologists, Data Scientists, Software Developers and Integrators to demonstrate how to allow the KNIME Analytics platform to interact with lab instruments directly. It was amazing how quickly the team got the prototype together and the primary reason for this was the use of #SiLA 2, free and open systems communication and data standards.
We’ll be at #SLAS2021 digital where we’ll be able to share more about this exciting collaboration and show the power of standards in action!
