The Paperless Laboratory: A Way Into Process Optimisation
05th November 2015 | 9am CET | Peter Boogaard |WATCH FOR FREE
This webinar will demonstrate how the scientific high-tech community, can benefit from adopting paperless processes in the laboratory. Is it because paper doesn’t require any significant investment budget, or is it the low barrier to access, since paper even works without power or the need to have access to an information infrastructure, or is it just simply that the “what’s in it for me” question hasn’t been answered satisfactorily for the scientists?
Cross-functional collaboration between research, development, quality assurance and manufacturing is all about optimising and integrating multi-discipline distributed processes from start-to- finish. A paperless electronic record keeping system will add significant value to support these goals. LIMS, SDMS, LES and ELN products all reduce variability, transcription errors. Do we believe that traditional paper based systems could ever support these complex processes?
