Leveraging extended reality (XR) technology to drive laboratory productivity

Learn how SampleManager XR software and Microsoft HoloLens can support implementing a digital strategy and drive forward digital transformation.

About this on-demand webinar

As organisations look to build and execute a digital transformation strategy, a major focus is how to improve the scientific experience. To maximise the output of the lab, scientists need to be able to rely on technological advancements, innovative software and improved processes. Ultimately, increasing productivity by streamlining day to day activities is a main component in becoming a lab of the future. 

One of the major elements driving digital transformation are the innovative technologies being applied to advance science. Capabilities such as augmented or extended reality (XR) provide a vast opportunity for laboratories to leverage technology, increase efficiencies and improve the scientific experience. Connecting laboratory software systems such as Thermo Scientific™ SampleManager™ laboratory information management system (LIMS) to XR devices, such as Microsoft HoloLens, enables scientists to work hands free using XR technology to drive compliance, repeatability and integrity.

The key to creating and implementing a digital strategy is determining where efficiencies can be made and where technologies can provide a competitive edge. In this on-demand webinar, you will learn how SampleManager XR software and Microsoft HoloLens can support those efforts and drive forward digital transformation.
