Scientific research primarily wheels on accuracy and precision. To foster such a conducive environment for the scientific developments to thrive, establishment of mission-critical facilities plays a pivotal role. It is not wrong to say that life-changing health solutions are consequentially the by-products of efficient and intelligent research laboratories.
However, setting up an independent, state-of-the-art lab is an expensive and cumbersome task. With more organizations inching towards ‘smart labs’ with a shared-space model, there is a greater need to address issues such as over-utilization of equipment or inefficient allocation of space.
This is where Johnson Controls Intelligent Laboratories steps in: bringing you an optimum expertise and customized solutions for a competitive and high-quality laboratory setup.
The Intelligent Laboratories solution is agnostic to any infrastructure or service provider, which means it can make use of existing sensors in the lab to collect information and provide insights that were not possible previously.
Software platform collects real-time data from various lab sources such as badges, asset tracker, etc. to provide insights about the movement of users, utilization and run-time of critical equipment, and identification of micro-climates.
Gathers analytics and insights of the space, equipment, and environment in the lab to help scientists and lab managers make informed decisions to improve lab efficiency and effectiveness.
Provides real-time feedback on space reconfiguration.
Have the data to understand which equipment you need more of and which you have too much of.
Detect out-of-range temperatures that impact experiments and create ideal workplaces to keep employees comfortable and more productive.
Eliminate time spent walking around to find carts, pipettes and other commonly used items with a real-time view of these mobile assets.
The data-driven insights on Johnson Controls Intelligent Laboratories application allow optimizing the equipment based on their usage frequency. The application’s API integration also facilitates equipment utilization data and real-time availability used by your equipment booking system. This helps in making informed decisions about repositioning the equipment and efficiently managing lab’s calendar without prolonging scientists’ bench time.
The application provides intelligent data to enhance efficiency inside the lab based on the usage trends for various equipment. This helps in streamlining the workflow based on the location of the equipment and the space allocated to it. By positioning equipment in the right order, scientists can eliminate the excess time spent on shuttling between the equipment, in turn boosting productivity.
Johnson Controls Intelligent Laboratories offers a space for an effective collaborative program to thrive with utmost ease. The solution gauges collaboration through statistics on “proximity events” and uses metadata to comprehend the type of collaboration. This information helps in measuring the effectiveness of the collaboration programs and devising more competent roadmaps for better scientific developments in the future.
The software goes beyond ‘who badges in and who badges out’ of the lab. It detects unauthorized persons who might have entered, prevents unauthorized dwelling in highly sensitive areas and can track whether a high-value asset has been moved outside a defined area by an unauthorized person. Its security features also improve health and safety within your facility by detecting lone workers operating outside of normal working hours and providing an option for help or emergency assistance.
