Action Area Digital Lab

Experience, feel and try out the smart lab of tomorrow!

Discover the Smart Lab

In five use cases, 14 partners will demonstrate their cross-manufacturer solutions for the networked and digitalised laboratory with the help of innovative products and software. The spectrum ranges from cobot-assisted work processes for sample preparation and analysis, to user-oriented process control with laboratory execution systems, to horizontally and vertically connected and yet modularly adaptable equipment solutions with the perspective of shared laboratory infrastructure and seamless integration between sample receipt and quality-assured analysis results, and a special highlight is the Mixed Reality Lab. We cordially invite you to try out and experience what is already possible today in the smart laboratory (of tomorrow).

You can experience these and other use cases at the Action Area Digital Lab:

Mixed Reality Lab

In the MR Lab, visitors dive into an augmented reality with a Holo-Lens. Voice and gesture control, virtually superimposed experimentation schemes, technical support with live transmission from your devices... science fiction dreams are brought to life here.

Demo on Tuesday, 23.08.2022, 1:30-2:00 pm and on Friday, 26.08.2022, 10:00-10:30 am


Connected Quality Control

The quality control of a chemical by means of a software-supported user guidance with comprehensive device control incl. solvent management and stock management allows the fulfilment of the highest standards with a low expenditure of time. The workflow is designed in such a way that, thanks to detailed instructions, the test is carried out in a maximally comparable manner – even with changing personnel. Automatically synchronising warehouse management software and fraud-proof labels at the touch of a button are embedded in the high-precision measurement with a refractometer during quality control.

Demo on Wednesday, 24.08.2022, 10:00-10:30 am and on Thursday, 25.08.2022, 1:30-2:00 pm

FlowLab – Cross-Vendor Data Communication

In routine laboratories, the recording and process monitoring of a wide variety of parameters is a significant part of the daily work. The consolidation and evaluation of the data is usually time-consuming and largely manual. FlowLab simplifies this process through automated and quality-assured information harmonisation using the new laboratory and analytical instrument standard LADS/OPC directly into a LIMS.

Demo on Monday, 22.08.2022, 1:30-2:00 pm and on Tuesday, 23.08.2022, 10:00-10:30 am

High-end Plate Handling

The workflow combines three devices on an area of less than one square metre: 1st a robotic arm for flexible and functionally integrated handling of microtitre plates (MTP). 2nd an MTP hotel for vertical incubation and storage. And 3rd a retractable incubator. The mobile iHEX comb can be used flexibly for transport, storage or as an incubator.

Demo on Monday, 22.08.2022, 10:00-10:30 am and on Wednesday, 24.08.2022, 1:30-2:00 pm

ELISA! Digitally Transformed

The workflow guides the user through an ELISA assay and assists the lab technicians to optimise time and quality. The software takes over the protocol management, controls process-relevant devices, calculates consumables and stores the measurement data for automated documentation. Through the targeted use of cobots, the lab technician is as fast as a pipetting robot; and with maximum flexibility as with completely manual experimentation.

Demo on Thursday, 25.08.2022, 10:00-10:30 am and on Friday, 26.08.2022, 1:30-2:00 pm


The "single" in the iHEX system is the "Lab2go". This autonomous laboratory comb gives you maximum mobility. Roll the comb to the place where it is needed. Power and WLAN are integrated, as is the interface to the laboratory management system. Pipetting and the work step are displayed simultaneously on the touch display. The software records the workflow directly – wherever you are experimenting.
