LabVantage Solutions Adds Mixed Reality Technology to Its Advanced LIMS Platform
—Global agreement with Holo4Labs promises to free lab technicians from paper and laptops for more efficient lab operations with reduced errors—
SOMERSET, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#ELN--LabVantage Solutions, Inc., the leading provider of laboratory informatics solutions and services, including purpose-built LIMS solutions that allow labs to go live faster and at a lower total cost, announced it has signed a global cooperation agreement with Holo4Labs (H4L). The deal integrates H4L’s mixed reality software solution with LabVantage LIMS to allow laboratories to digitize their lab processes via mixed reality, freeing lab technicians from paper notes and laptops to manage workflows more efficiently and reduce errors. The agreement also includes ongoing development and integration of the two companies’ offerings and marks LabVantage’s commitment to commercial applications of the metaverse.
The integrated solution will leverage virtual reality Microsoft HoloLens 2 goggles that allow laboratory technicians to see hologram overlays that guide them through their experiments and analysis — from identifying and managing reagents and finding the correct location of samples to identifying instruments that require calibration before running an experiment and/or analysis. This ensures each step is conducted efficiently and within specification. The resulting mixed reality laboratory environment allows hands-free execution of procedures for higher productivity and compliance.
“Today’s announcement is an important step in our drive toward the digital laboratory of the future. Our relationship with Holo4Labs, and their support of laboratories, fits perfectly with our approach to the paperless digital laboratory and fully embracing Lab 4.0 technologies,” said Mikael Hagstroem, CEO at LabVantage Solutions. “By joining forces in development, sales, and integration of common solutions, we create a unique offering that allows our customers to use advanced LIMS solutions supported by mixed reality technology.”
Holo4Labs is part of the TenderHut Capital Group, operating in the broadly defined IT sector. TenderHut is developing companies and technologies based on three pillars of activity: IT outsourcing (Software Design and Development), implementation of laboratory systems (Lab Systems), and Venture Building.
“A strategic partnership with LabVantage is the perfect combination to strengthen the innovative technologies developed at the TenderHut Group,” said Robert Strzelecki, CEO at TenderHut Capital Group. “Both companies leverage each other's strengths.”
