Laboratory 4.0: The Rise of Smart Automation and Connectivity

At analytica 2024, the spotlight is on Laboratory 4.0 and digital transformation, with the introduction of the Laboratory & Analytical Device Standard (LADS) ensuring seamless equipment and software integration. This "plug-and-play" system allows equipment from different manufacturers to connect and work together seamlessly, automating tasks and improving efficiency. 

The analytica trade fair will showcase various applications of this technology, including robotic assistants, digital warehousing, and AI-powered analysis. The event aims to connect equipment manufacturers, software developers, and users to accelerate the transition to Laboratory 4.0 and equip the global laboratory community with the knowledge and tools for a successful digital future.

Sustainable and Safe Food Innovation

analytica 2024 will feature advancements in food analysis to meet evolving consumer demands. Sophisticated methods help differentiate and optimize vegan options while analyzing emerging alternatives, including cell-cultured meat, for quality and safety. Concerns about pollutants lead to new techniques for rapid testing of contaminants ranging from microplastic to PFAS. By uniting diverse stakeholders, analytica aims to foster collaboration to address growing food challenges.

Eco-Friendly Practices for Your Lab

From energy-saving appliances and green refrigerants to bio-based plastics and helium alternatives, exhibitors showcase unique sustainability measures at analytica. Tackle energy-hungry equipment through on-site consultations and source eco-friendly reagents and alternatives directly from suppliers. Helium scarcity is addressed with filters and systems using hydrogen, and bio-based plastics in labware can reduce carbon footprints. Miniaturization saves resources, while manufacturers promote repair, maintenance, and device return options. Collaboration between users and manufacturers paves the way for a greener future in the lab.
