The InsightFaraday Partnership has launched LabSmart, a novel software-based process developed to analyse and significantly enhance laboratory operations. Coordinated by LGC, core partner of the InsightFaraday Partnership, this unique audit service is designed to model laboratory processes and explore alternative scenarios for improving efficiency and resource utilisation.
The InsightFaraday Partnership has launched LabSmart, a novel software-based process developed to analyse and significantly enhance laboratory operations. Coordinated by LGC, core partner of the InsightFaraday Partnership, this unique audit service is designed to model laboratory processes and explore alternative scenarios for improving efficiency and resource utilisation.

The software, developed by InsightFaraday with local Runcorn software specialist, Webaspx, is extremely flexible and can model virtually any laboratory. The audit process typically takes less than four weeks, with minimum disruption to current operations, and has already been used in laboratories providing routine analytical services as well as in formulation and highly complex biological assay laboratories.

Director of InsightFaraday, Dr Steve Fletcher, based at LGC´s Runcorn site, said: 'Improvements resulting from the LabSmart audit service can range from streamlined work flows, right through to radical re-design of a laboratory incorporating the latest high throughput technologies. The modelling process can help quantify benefits and justify investment in HTT tools such as automation and software to achieve higher throughput in laboratories and, more importantly, higher quality outputs. Furthermore, LabSmart covers not just the technologies but also the management and people within the lab, highlighting where skilled researchers´ time can be freed up for more intellectual activities and how routine tasks can be delegated to automated systems.'

Dr Maria Raimondi, Product Development Manager for InsightFaraday, also at LGC, said: 'We are delighted to be able to make the LabSmart audit package commercially available. In today´s highly competitive world, businesses have to be more innovative than ever in creating new products and processes, and bring them rapidly to market whilst striving to bring down operational costs at the same time. The LabSmart audit service should help to increase the productivity of research facilities and to lower the costs.'
