PerkinElmer has launched informatics-based business intelligence solution, Asset Genius. Enabling laboratories to make effective decisions on how assets are deployed, utilised and managed throughout their lifecycle, Asset Genius aids scientists in improving productivity from their instruments as data is captured directly, with no disruption to workflows and with no user intervention required.
The system automatically collects detailed real-time utilisation data from any networked laboratory instrument, regardless of the vendor, from simple instruments such as balances to sophisticated instruments with their own data systems such as chromatography data systems. The Asset Genius platform also addresses non-networked instruments by allowing usage information to be collected manually through an easy to use, integrated e-form.
All instrument data can be aggregated into analysis and visualisation reports that provide enterprise-wide insight into utilisation metrics. Using Asset Genius’ pre-configured suite of reports, scientific and operations leaders can drill down through the data and quickly identify key performance and utilisation metrics, such as the number of samples run, the number of injections or methods used and which project a particular asset is focused on.
