In recent years, laboratories have experienced significant changes in their working environments, thanks to the increasing need for efficiency and the integration of digital technologies. This shift has transformed the traditional view of laboratories, creating a new and modern outlook. In this article, we will investigate the latest trends in laboratories.
Customisation is a crucial aspect of laboratory design, and today, laboratories can be customised to provide the perfect ergonomic and working environment for laboratory users. At Labflex, our flexible designs and layouts are created in the early stages of laboratory design, securing higher efficiency and functionality. By customising our workspaces, we ensure that our solutions fit the unique needs of each laboratory, enabling technicians to maximise efficiency while using minimal space.
Flexibility in laboratory design allows for more users to collaborate in the same setting, encouraging teamwork and knowledge sharing. We recognise the importance of collaboration in laboratory settings and design workspaces that promote teamwork while maintaining functionality.
Flexibility enables multiple workflows to take place in the same setting, providing an efficient use of space. We design workspaces that optimise multiple processes, allowing for better utilisation of laboratory space and higher efficiency. With multiple workflows in less space, laboratory users can achieve more with less, saving both time and resources.
The trend for digitalisation in the laboratory has become increasingly popular due to the many benefits it offers. One such benefit is the ability to get insights into consumption and utilisation data. By collecting data from laboratory units, it is possible to monitor usage and identify areas where improvements can be made.
Another benefit of digitalisation is the ability to remotely monitor connected units in real-time. With the help of connected sensors and IoT devices, laboratory managers can remotely monitor various parameters and receive notifications when there are changes.
Designing smarter processes based on data is another benefit of digitalisation. By analysing data from laboratory units, it is possible to identify inefficiencies and design smarter processes that improve overall efficiency. At Labflex, we use data to optimise laboratory processes, allowing technicians to maximise efficiency while using minimal space. By creating smarter processes based on data, we can help laboratories achieve their goals more effectively and with greater accuracy.
At Labflex, we are exploring innovative methods of harnessing laboratory data to increase efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. Through our partnership with Inniti, we aim to test the feasibility of data utilization for ventilated units in the laboratory.
The trend for sustainability in the laboratory has become increasingly important due to the impact laboratories have on the environment. One trend within sustainability is the use of less space and the creation of efficient workflows. By optimising laboratory space, it is possible to reduce the overall environmental footprint of the laboratory.
At Labflex, we design workspaces that optimise multiple processes, allowing for better utilisation of laboratory space and higher efficiency. By using less space and creating efficient workflows, we can reduce the overall energy consumption of the laboratory.
Another trend within sustainability is optimising the use of fume cupboards. Fume cupboards are necessary in many laboratories, but they can also be a significant source of energy consumption. By optimising the use of fume cupboards, it is possible to reduce the environmental impact of laboratory operations.
A responsible choice of materials is also an important sustainability factor. By choosing materials that are environmentally friendly, it is possible to reduce the overall environmental impact of laboratory operations.
We are committed to sustainability, and our focus is on improving efficiency and reducing physical footprint through modern laboratory design. We are also continuously developing innovative solutions for emissions reductions through digitalization in the laboratory.
At Labflex, we have more than 60 years of experience in designing laboratories and we are able to utilize our competencies to deliver laboratories focusing on the latest trends. Our consultants are always available to discuss opportunities to optimize your laboratory. With our experience, we can help you design a laboratory that meets your specific needs while promoting efficiency and sustainability.
