D-Konstanz | Great interest in the bioSASH#3 hackathon series! More than ever, the connectivity of data and software standards are essential for different tasks in the lab environment, therefore SILA & AnlML standards were in the focus of the bioSASH hackathons which took place from 3rd of March to 17th of March 2022.
BioLAGO in cooperation with SiLA hosted succesfully three online lab automation hackathons in the series of March with three different lab challenges. A total number of 80 participants attended the events. The bioSASH#3 hackathons included ten keynote speakers and many different working groups who worked together on the lab of the future using the open standards of SiLA and AnIML.
The bioSASH#3 hackathon offered lab users the opportunity to meet with a group of automation experts to discuss and to work on tough challenges in the lab. BioLAGO and SiLA invited hereto pharmaceutical companies as Vetter Pharma Fertigung GmbH und Co. KG., Takeda, innovative start ups as 1LIMS and many experts from different fields and industries like Mr. Andrew Mitchell who is Data and Standardization Manger of Unilever and introduced the role of SiLA and AnIML in the Unilever lab of the future vision.
This time we also registered great interest from universities who contributed actively in the bioSASH project in both in the working sessions but also in the keynote speaker sessions.
One of them is Lukas Bromig. He is doctorate student at Technical University of Munich. Lukas led a working group in the very first bioSASH hackathon. In the last bioSASH#3 hackathon Lukas presented the topic “An IoT platform for lab automation”. Lukas explained how software platforms build on open standards can help to solve problems ranging from device integration to workflow execution and data management by leveraging IoT technology in the service-oriented lab of the future.
We interviewed Lukas Bromig who is a very active part of the bioSASH project:
