Digitalisation is the reality for each of us in our private life. In laboratories, it’s still a dream. But why are we dreaming of digitalisation and of connectivity between your instruments and your leading systems when these things are actually at our fingertips?
The reason might be obvious: when the right tools to connect all software silos are missing, we can’t be digitalised in reality. Most labs still work with data silos (SAP, ELN, LIMS, instrument vendor software, etc.), proprietary data formats and manual tasks involving paper—all of which make the collected data unusable for secondary-use initiatives like data mining, AI and ML, or visualization.
But we can solve this un-FAIR challenge! By normalizing your chemical and biological instrument data on the ASTM open data standard AnIML, which makes all these data available for secondary usage and long-term retention. AnIML lets your data flow among all boundaries.
Sounds easy, doesn’t it?
