Unified Laboratory Management

Optimizing operations, maximizing quality and driving innovation with a standardized solution based on one foundation providing unique role-based user experiences for the lab

Unified Lab Management

The Digital Lab Experience

In today’s competitive environment science-based organizations need to optimize operations by improving efficiency while maximizing quality and adhering to regulations as well as to drive innovation more than ever before.

The ability to bring new products to market rapidly and efficiently with high quality and at low cost defines operational excellence. Paper-based processes are a barrier to operational excellence in many companies today, slowing the pace from initial product ideation to commercialization.

Data transfer and exchange is key for analyzing quality related data in order to optimize processes and products and to make decisions as early as possible in the process. Disconnected and paper-based processes hamper not only the access of relevant data throughout the research, development and manufacturing lifecycle but any manual steps in this process bear significant compliance risks. Innovation requires collaboration which in today’s industry often happens in a global externalized environment which is not supported by the required infrastructure.

These challenges also apply to the lab environment, which in order to contribute to the corporate goals needs to remove inefficiencies and compliance risks from lab processes and to provide a collaborative environment for innovation. This can only be achieved by:

  • Standardized lab processes and adoption of standard procedures, recipes and workflows
  • One single foundation for integration, automation and collaboration in the lab
  • End-to-end processes tailored to lab based roles

BIOVIA Unified Lab Management provides a standardized approach for all laboratory processes including the management of procedures, recipes, and resources and the execution of lab workflows and tasks and uses the S88 standard for importing and exporting data and information between the BIOVIA applications and 3rd party products.

The integration capabilities of the BIOVIA Foundation provides customers with streamlined and more efficient lab workflows, harmonization and standardization and a fully integrated and automated easy to deploy process. Working as an integration hub the BIOVIA Foundation not only integrates the BIOVIA applications but also all major 3rd party systems and instruments. It also builds the basis for seamless data transfer between the different domains from Research to Manufacturing and with external collaborators.

BIOVIA Unified Lab Management provides process experiences that are dedicated to a specific role in the laboratory context and that include all capabilities for supporting a seamless and efficient workflow so different roles (like lab managers, lab administrators, lab technicians etc.) will experience the direct benefits of a dedicated integrated process.

BIOVIA’s Unified Lab Management solution encompasses all areas of laboratory processes and activities from Lab Management over Resource and Recipe Management to Operations Execution. This ensures the integrated management and scheduling of people, equipment, and data as well as the integrated execution of procedures, experiments and tests.
