Why You Should Attend

Future Labs

Many labs in Australia and New Zealand are struggling to stay afloat in the uncertain environment where funding is limited and shrinking. Without proper management and innovation, they may be finding themselves losing out in meeting their deliverables within the expected turnaround time and budget. Information technology developments are greatly improving lab management efficiency. However, LIMS is also facing risks of being hacked and infected which would jeopardise the workflow and research results. Laboratories which had taken the step to leapfrog their innovation and lab capabilities, made their processes efficient and produce high quality results had stand a higher chance of obtaining external investment/partnership, or collaborating with universities to get government research and development (R&D) grants.

marcus evans Future Labs conference is providing a great platform for lab managers to learn from industry experts from a wide spectrum of labs to develop their own improvement strategies. Delegates will explore how they can find ways to streamline analytical processes to reduce turnaround time and improve overall performance. In addition, they will be looking into the most advanced technologies and automation solutions which can bring lab capabilities to the next level. Furthermore, the conference is featuring a half day workshop on lab design which will help delegates to create highly capable labs that serve future needs!
