ATL to Host Webcast: LIMS Without Limits - Using Mobile Technology
News Aug 13, 2013
Accelerated Technology Laboratories, Inc. (ATL) will host the sixth in a series of webcasts on Wednesday, August 21, 2013, to share information leveraging LIMS in a mobile world, with tablets such as the iPad and Samsung Galaxy, as well as smart phones. ATL's Mobile Application allows a collector to download relevant sample collection information from the automated scheduler that was set up in the ATL LIMS directly onto their mobile device. Users of this application can view a collection list, enter results for samples that were previously scheduled, and add new samples "on the fly". Field or plant samplers may have routine collection routes, respond to emergency collection needs or address consumer complaints.
Users connect to ATL's Mobile Application using their web-enabled smart phone or tablet's browser. The ATL Mobile Application website communicates with the Web Service, which communicates with the LIMS database. The ATL LIMS mobile technology allows users to collect data even when no Internet or Wi-Fi connection is available and uploads the data to the LIMS once the user is back in range.
Both field users and laboratory users will benefit from this technology. Primary advantages of ATL's Mobile Application include rapid data access, faster decision-making, enhanced data quality, reduction of costs (labor savings) and increased customer satisfaction.
Recommended attendees include laboratory and quality managers in the analytical, food & beverage, manufacturing (product/material testing), agriculture, energy, environmental, water/wastewater, life science, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and public health sectors
As electronics become smaller and faster, the adoption of "wearables", like smart watches, has increased. However, like regular computers, wearables are vulnerable to conventional hacking. What if we could use the human body itself to transfer and collect information? This area of research is known as human body communication (HBC).
