A holistic view on digitalization in the laboratory industry

As technology continues to advance, we at Labflex have been committed to embracing digital solutions to enhance our laboratory design, production, and use of the laboratories. By integrating digital solutions into our processes, we are able to improve the efficiency, safety, and overall functionality of our laboratory solutions. 


When it comes to laboratory design, digital solutions have revolutionised the way we create and customise laboratory layouts. By using 3D modelling and simulation software, we can create virtual representations of laboratory spaces that allow us to test and refine designs before construction even begins. This helps us identify and solve potential problems early on, saving time and reducing costs. 

We use Building Information Modelling (BIM) software to integrate all aspects of a laboratory project into one cohesive digital model. This includes everything from the architecture and engineering to the furniture and equipment layout. This allows us to create a detailed digital representation of a laboratory project, which can be shared with clients, architects, and contractors, to ensure everyone is on the same page. 


In terms of production, digital solutions have streamlined the manufacturing process and improved the quality of our laboratory furniture and equipment. We use CNC machines to produce precise and consistent cuts in materials like wood, and laminates. This enables us to create laboratory solutions that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also fully customised to the client’s needs and requirements. 

In addition to improving production efficiency and ensuring accurate assembly, digital optimisation also allows for greater customisation of our furniture. By using advanced software and automation tools, we can easily adjust product configurations to meet the unique needs and preferences of our customers. 

Standardised processes enable us to maintain consistent quality across our product lines, from design to delivery. By establishing clear guidelines and best practices for production, we can minimize errors and defects, resulting in higher customer satisfaction and fewer returns. 

Use in the laboratories

Fume cupboards are an essential part of laboratory equipment that protect workers from hazardous fumes and vapours. However, traditional fume cupboards lack connectivity and data-gathering capabilities, which limits their overall efficiency. To address this challenge, Labflex and Inniti are currently developing solutions which aims to digitalise fume cupboards and provide real-time monitoring and analysis. 

With our digital fume cupboard solutions, laboratory users will be able to remotely monitor connected fume cupboards in real-time, gaining insights into their energy consumption and utilization data. This data can then be used to optimise performance and reduce energy, resulting in significant cost savings and reduction of carbon emission. 

In conclusion, digital solutions have revolutionized the way we design, produce, and use laboratory solutions at Labflex. By incorporating digital solutions into our processes, we are able to create laboratory solutions that are efficient, safe, and functional. As technology continues to evolve, we are committed to staying at the forefront of digital solutions in laboratory design and production.
