LABVOLUTION with BIOTECHNICA 2017 (16鈥18 May, Tue.鈥揟hu.)
 
Hannover. If you鈥檝e ever wondered what tomorrow鈥檚 intelligent laboratories might look like, the smartLAB showcase is the place to go to find answers. smartLAB will be in its second season in 2017, having premiered successfully in 2015. It will be held from 16 to 18 May in Hannover, Germany, at LABVOLUTION, Europe鈥檚 flagship fair for innovative lab equipment and laboratory workflow optimization. LABVOLUTION is staged alongside BIOTECHNICA life sciences show, so there will be plenty of synergies on offer. Visitors to next year鈥檚 smartLAB showcase will be able to immerse themselves in the rapidly evolving world of intelligent, digitally enhanced laboratory systems.
 
鈥淔lexible, digital integration, automation and robotics, integrated functional surfaces and modular systems 鈥 these are the things tomorrow鈥檚 laboratories are made of,鈥 commented Dr. Simon Bungers, the CEO of Berlin-based software company labfolder and spokesperson for the smartLAB Group. Concrete examples of this convergence of technologies will once again be presented by multiple enterprises and institutions from science and industry. Under the overall leadership of the Institute of Technical Chemistry at Leibniz University Hannover, they are combining their expertise and solutions to create fully digitalized systems that encompass all laboratory work processes. Their current focus is on visualization, interaction and communication 鈥 which is why smartLAB 2017 is taglined 鈥渃ommunicating science interactively.鈥
 
smartLAB 2017: for Tomorrow鈥檚 Intelligent Laboratories
 
The smartLAB 2017 showcase will feature a number of devices that are new to laboratory integration. These include an interactive dispenser, a QR code scanner, an SLS (selective laser sintering) 3D printer and an induction charging station for mobile devices. The interactive dimension will be supplied by a robotic arm that has been tested and licensed for human-machine interaction in the lab, an app that visitors can use to directly view the SmartLAB display鈥檚 laboratory information management system (LIMS), and a remote presence robot.
 
Of course, the key benefit of the smartLAB lies not in the unique or special nature of its individual components, but in how those components interact with one another. 鈥淲e have a truly holistic view of laboratory value chains and are developing smart solutions accordingly,鈥 smartLab Group spokesperson Simon Bungers explained. 鈥淲e are using the smartLAB initiative to explore options for radically simplifying lab processes and documentation while enhancing quality and efficiency,鈥 he added.
 
Occupying an area of more than 400 square meters (4,300 sq. ft.), the smartLAB showcase will comprise a showroom housing the actual smartLAB plus an exhibition area where the participating enterprises and institutions can run their own displays and explore various aspects of tomorrow鈥檚 intelligent laboratories in presentations and panel discussions.
 
Among the highlights of the showcase will be a series of daily use-case demonstrations that will paint a very concrete picture of tomorrow鈥檚 intelligent laboratories. Three use cases will be demonstrated live on each day of LABVOLUTION. They will be from the fields of biotechnology, environmental technology and food technology. Specifically, they relate to an application for inoculating bioreactors and initiating bioprocess monitoring; an application for determining the phosphate content of soil samples, and an application for testing food samples for the presence of genetically modified components.
 
The partners of smartLAB 2017 comprise the following enterprises and institutions: Bionic Robotics, Eppendorf, the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation (Fraunhofer IPA), iTiZZiMO, Köttermann, labfolder, LUPYLED, PreSens Precision Sensing, Sartorius, Schmitt + Haensch, Z眉hlke Engineering, the Institute of Technical Chemistry at Leibniz University Hannover, and Deutsche Messe AG.
 
The smartLAB project has also spawned the smartLAB Innovation Network 鈥 a Germany-wide cluster of companies and research institutions dedicated to the development and standardization of innovative laboratory technologies. The network is part of Germany鈥檚 government-sponsored Central Innovation Program (ZIM).
 
LABVOLUTION with BIOTECHNICA
The next 鈥淟ABVOLUTION with BIOTECHNICA鈥 double-header event will be held from 16 to 18 May 2017 in Hannover, Germany. LABVOLUTION is Europe鈥檚 flagship fair for innovative lab equipment and laboratory workflow optimization. It showcases every facet of laboratory work, from the life sciences to analytical chemistry, and covers the full array of equipment and infrastructure for research, analysis, production and training laboratories as needed by the chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology/life sciences, environmental protection and food sectors. As a co-staged event, BIOTECHNICA adds biotech research, development and business to the mix, with major emphasis being placed on knowledge transfer, innovation, networking, recruitment and startups. 鈥淟ABVOLUTION with BIOTECHNICA鈥 is being staged in Hall 19/20 (adjacent to the North 1 entrance). A single ticket is valid for admission to both shows.
 
Deutsche Messe AG
From its headquarters in Hannover, Germany, Deutsche Messe AG plans and stages leading capital goods trade fairs around the globe. The company ranks among the five biggest trade show organizers in Germany, with revenue of 329.3 million euros and a net profit of 9.4 million euros in 2015. The company鈥檚 event portfolio includes such world-leading events as CeBIT (digital business), HANNOVER MESSE (industrial technology), LABVOLUTION and BIOTECHNICA (lab technology and biotechnology), CeMAT (intralogistics and supply chain management), didacta (education), DOMOTEX (carpets and floor coverings), INTERSCHUTZ (fire prevention, disaster relief, rescue, safety and security), and LIGNA (woodworking, wood processing and forestry). With approx. 1,200 employees and a network of 66 representatives, subsidiaries and branch offices, Deutsche Messe is present in more than 100 countries worldwide.
