Communication and efficiency advancements increase the speed with which work can get completed, and the cost required.
Fremont, CA: Technology trends can significantly improve the laboratory's capabilities. Thanks to advances in technology and methods, laboratory technicians and scientists can now work more accurately and efficiently than ever before. In addition, communication and efficiency advancements increase the speed with which work can get completed as well as the cost required. In this section, let's see some of the most popular upcoming trends in the field.
· Smaller lab equipment
Lab equipment is becoming increasingly compact. This saves a significant amount of shelf space! New technology could accomplish this by removing a series of hydraulic systems previously required to store samples properly. Instead, the user now has fluidic components that can integrate multiple laboratories into a single "chip," saving bench space, workforce, and money.
· Utilizing cloud technology
New laboratory equipment can record data and send it to the cloud. Similarly, the equipment can notify a scientist or lab technician when something goes wrong. Thanks to cloud technology, scientists can now share their findings more quickly than ever before. In addition, using Cloud technology, users can connect to and access multiple project contributors, including people in different laboratories. As a result, work can get completed from various locations—one such ability to communicate boosts productivity and allows people to work together more easily.
Automation of lab equipment is not a new concept, but it is advancing and spreading over more fields than anyone could have predicted. As technology advances, we gain even more versatility in function and application, which means that a single machine can now perform a variety of tasks.
Automation eliminates many of the time-consuming, repetitive experimental steps previously performed manually. As a result, results get now produced in a fraction of the time it used to take! This extra time permits laboratory technicians to concentrate their critical thinking skills on data analysis rather than data recording.
· New sustainability options
Environmental concerns are affecting all areas of work, along with scientific research. Unfortunately, research laboratories consume approximately five times the power source per square foot as a typical office space. In addition, the equipment and unsocial hours consume a significant amount of resources. Fortunately, advances in technology have enabled scientists to be as resource-efficient as possible.
Labs around the world are implementing new 'open labs,' which allow researchers to share laboratory equipment and resources. Equipment is extremely expensive, and open labs provide access to a large number of people at a lower cost to both the scientists and the lab.
