Smartlab Exchange - Europe's Premier Laboratory Informatics Event

With so much happening in lab informatics…

•    Lab informatics professionals are under more scrutiny than ever before, and are expected to play their part in cutting company costs, streamlining lengthening global supply chains and reducing new product time to market

•    Increasing industry M&A brings more challenges to overcome - not only with data integration but in finding new ways to make data work for the business, not the other way around

•    Managing data flow between sites, particularly when working with external partners, is also raising the bar for solution providers in terms of what clients demand from their technology and services

•    Complying with regulation is also not enough. Enterprises globally must demonstrate compliance and accountability in operations, and therefore invest in the right solutions to do just that

•    Lab Managers must continue to empower their teams, enabling them to be more creative and encouraging market leading product innovation. They also need to promote dynamic knowledge sharing to stay ahead of the competition, while ensuring company data remains secure.

Now in its seventh year, SmartLab Exchange 2012 is the only opportunity for the entire spectrum of the lab informatics community to convene, network and discover innovative ways to address these complex challenges, as well as gain an end-to-end industry view and where it is heading over the next twelve months.

60 hand selected industry practitioners will attend the SmartLab Exchange from pharmaceutical and biotech companies, as well as leading organisations from the food & beverage, FMCG, cosmetics, healthcare, oil & gas and petrochemicalsectors.

Key themes to be addressed in 2012 include:

•    Setting standards for best practice data flow and knowledge sharing with external partners

•    Less is more: Streamlining technology used within the lab environment to simplify business processes

•    Reduce route to market time and costs through smart implementation of lab informatics tools

•    “Chasing the zero”: Balance high quality, in depth insight with practical results interpretations to achieve greater clarity across the business

•    Engaging lab workers and securing executive sponsorship to guarantee smooth and successful project delivery

Retractable Protein Nanoneedles
The ability to control the transfer of molecules through cellular membranes is an important function in synthetic biology; a new study from researchers at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Harvard Medical School (HMS) introduces a novel mechanical method for controlling release of molecules inside cells.
Leukemia’s Surroundings Key to its Growth
Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have discovered that a type of cancer found primarily in children can grow only when signaled to do so by other nearby cells that are noncancerous.
Common Cell Transformed into Master Heart Cell
By genetically reprogramming the most common type of cell in mammalian connective tissue, researchers at the University of Wisconsin—Madison have generated master heart cells — primitive progenitors that form the developing heart.
‘Smelling’ Prostate Cancer
A research team from the University of Liverpool and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has reached an important milestone towards creating a urine diagnostic test for prostate cancer that could mean that invasive diagnostic procedures that men currently undergo eventually become a thing of the past.
Genetic Mutation that Prevents Diabetes Complications
The most significant complications of diabetes include diabetic retinal disease, or retinopathy, and diabetic kidney disease, or nephropathy. Both involve damaged capillaries.
