LabVantage Solutions, Inc., a provider of laboratory informatics solutions and services, including purpose-built LIMS solutions announced it has signed a global cooperation agreement with Holo4Labs (H4L), according to their press release.
The agreement integrates H4L’s mixed reality software solution with LabVantage LIMS to allow laboratories to digitize their lab processes via mixed reality, freeing lab technicians from paper notes and laptops to manage workflows more efficiently and reduce errors. The agreement also includes ongoing development and integration of the two companies’ offerings and marks LabVantage’s commitment to commercial applications of the metaverse.
The integrated solution will leverage virtual reality Microsoft HoloLens 2 goggles that allow laboratory technicians to see hologram overlays that guide them through their experiments and analysis – from identifying and managing reagents and finding the correct location of samples to identifying instruments that require calibration before running an experiment and/or analysis. This ensures each step is conducted efficiently and within specification. The resulting mixed reality laboratory environment allows hands-free execution of procedures for higher productivity and compliance.
