Last friday, our CDO talked at IT for Business meeting about the digital workspace and the use of immersive technologies in the evolution of work. It was a pleasure to share our experiences with famous companies like, Axa France, Bouygues Telecom Entreprises or Forrester Research!

Even if we are “small” compared to such companies, we are particularly involved in the use of such technologies because it’s a way to give better services to our customers. You remember, last year,  we used Microsoft Hololens and augmented reality to validate our industrial platform thanks to partners Molecular Devices and agence dad. It was a great success! Then we organized a special session about the use of augmented and virtual reality in laboratories at Monaco to share with other biotechnological and pharmaceutical companies.

Next step for us is to put more and more interactive and immersive contents in our services, to help results visualization and “biological understanding”. We have engaged, for example, a R&D program on Machine Learning and Articifical Intelligence and we are working now on the integration of AR glasses for BIOMIMESYS® support.

Of course, if you have questions about all these technologies, we will be happy to help you!

The next ELRIGfr meeting will take place in Monaco (November 27th and 28th) and our CDO, Grégory MAUBON, will organize a special session about the use of augmented and virtual reality in laboratories.

After a first “step” during last ELRIGfr event (Forum Labo Paris) where many possibilities were presented, it’s time now to look at real cases. Grégory, who is also president of RA’pro (Association for the Promotion of Augmented Reality), has chosen three uses with clear results :

  • Sopra Steria will present how to use 3D models in training and quality control with augmented reality
  • Agence dad and Molecular Devices will present how augmented reality could be used in laboratories for devices integration and training. Of course, we will talk about our use of augmented reality for our HAPIx installation !
  • MicroTechniX will present their use of virtual reality for ScanLab II, where you can test the equipment remotely and before the machine is built!

Of course, many other interesting things will be discussed during these two days, like personalized medicine and data management ! We will be happy to meet you in Monaco !

If you have any questions about integration of immersive technologies in biotechnologies, pharmaceutical industries (and even in other fields), feel free to contact Grégory !

As we said at Forum LABO and ELRIGfr event, we are convinced that many (not-so) new technologies can enhance work of biologists. Augmented reality is a great tool to see “things that are not here” 🙂 It’s exactly why we have used it to check and validate our future robotic platform compliance (in our Lille laboratories) before delivery. Thanks to our partner Molecular Devices, we have worked on the platform 3D model to put it into a Microsoft Hololens and finally, in our laboratory ! The process is not so complex, when you work with Hololens specialists like dad ( !

As you can see on the video below, our CEO Nathalie talks with Cédric (from Molecular Devices) about small modifications on the platform. They see together the same 3D model. It is also possible to add a third person from a distant place.

It was only the first step ! Now we are working on the training part of our project and, of course, the possibility to maintain the platform from anywhere in the world ! If you have question, don’t hesitate to talk with our CDO Grégory, as you can see on his profile he is also an AR expert !

With a great pleasure, we will be present at the next session of ELRIGfr meeting during the Forum LABO from 28th to 30th March 2017 at Paris expo Porte de Versailles in France. Our CIO, Grégory Maubon, recognized as expert in augmented reality, will moderate a whole session about the future of laboratories. Several companies like Microsoft, Clarte, OUAT! and Galapagos, will present their visions of this future … which is not so far away !

We will talk about data visualization with augmented reality, choice and implantation of robotic devices with virtual reality, artificial intelligence, training, maintenance, and many more !

Come and discover this exciting session !
