NMKL - Seminar on digitalisation of the laboratory - benefits and pitfalls

Digitalisation of the laboratory – benefits and pitfalls Digitalisation provides opportunities for increased quality assurance and smoother data management. However, the process of digitalisation is complicated and systems that do not match expectations are not uncommon. At the seminar, some marketable systems are presented by company representatives. As development progresses rapidly, visions on near-future systems will also be presented. In the afternoon, representatives from different laboratories will tell about their experiences with digitalising their own lab - what went well and what could have been better? We will also get some tips on what to consider and how to get started. Which are the lowest hanging fruits? This seminar arranged by NMKL addresses you who work with improvement of the laboratory, both from a quality assurance and an efficiency perspective. When – 29 August 2018 Where – Hotel Kristina, Rektor Cullbergs väg 1, Sigtuna(15 min. from Arlanda airport) RegistrationThe cost for participation is 2,000 SEK (excl.
