The digital lab concept has been around for decades, with nearly every science-based organization seeking ways to achieve complete digitalization and automation throughout their operations. Progress has been made in many areas, however, the full power and benefits have yet to be realized as there is no single platform that can link all the disparate hardware and software that make up a typical scientific laboratory.

For example, how do you get your balance to talk to your network? Ask it to weigh in? Or your pH meter? Ask it for basic information? If only it were that easy.

To make the digital dream a reality, a new paradigm is needed – a platform that creates workflows on the fly by connecting the constellation of:

Because labs have purchased products from different manufacturers over time, this architecture also must be vendor-agnostic regarding communication protocols, and file formats. It must seamlessly integrate everything so scientists can translate data from these different sources into knowledge that enables them to make better, faster, more informed decisions to meet their objectives.

You may think this is a nearly impossible set of criteria to meet. These obstacles were insurmountable in the past. But today, those hurdles of the past are being eliminated — Scitara is making sure of that! Scitara’s mantra is “No instrument or application left behind. We haven’t encountered an instrument or application that couldn’t be quickly added to our digital backbone and we don’t think we ever will, says Geoff Gerhardt, Chief Technology Officer for Scitara.”

Scitara was founded with the singular goal of providing products and services that help labs implement a truly cohesive, comprehensive, and secure digital ecosystem. Their Scientific Integration Platform™ SIP™, with its Digital Lab Exchange DLX™ engine, breaks down entrenched data silos by connecting, orchestrating, and monitoring every piece of hardware on your benches – even those that do not have a communication port – and software that resides on your computers, servers, or the cloud.

Scitara DLX was developed by scientists like you who understand your needs. “We knew it had to be flexible and scalable so it can grow as your needs evolve, says Gerhardt. We knew it had to work with your existing systems and be easy to deploy and configure. And we knew it had to ensure accurate, properly structured data models that could be used to feed artificial intelligence and machine learning systems.”
