Industry 4.0, representing the fourth industrial revolution, has arrived in the laboratory. The pressure for innovation and Efficiency is making laboratory leaders rethink the way they operate their labs. Supported by a rapid evolution in technologies, several trends are leading to significantly more laboratory digitization and automation already today. Industry 4.0 Technologies will revolutionize the laboratory in many areas, such as sample logistics and data management.
Among the key Industry 4.0 trends are:
  • Big Data / Predictive Analytics / Connected Lab
  • Internet of Things (“IoT”)
  • Visual processes / Virtual Reality
  • Robotics / Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Machine Learning
  • Speech recognition / Lab assistants

Target Group

This webinar addresses Heads of Quality Control, Laboratory Managers, Supervisors, and employees working in
  • Incoming goods control
  • Control of finished drug products
  • Analytical development
  • API and excipient testing
  • Contract laboratories
