SP, Shimadzu to prepare for digitalisation by 2020

18 Sep 2018

Article featured the newly launched SMARTLab (Scalable, Manageable, Automated, Regulated and Total-Compliant Laboratory), which is located in SP. The SMARTLab, launched by both SP and Shimadzu Corporation yesterday, simulates the future digitalised laboratory. It will have state-of-the-art laboratory instruments that are managed by IoT (Internet-of-Things) and serves as a learning space for laboratory technicians to learn about laboratory informatics and the use of modern analytical instrumentation. This initiative marks the first and only platform for companies in the energy and chemicals sector to prepare for digitalisation of their laboratories. It is also a response to the Energy & Chemicals Industry Transformation Map which aims to have 20 Energy and Chemicals (E&C) plants, including all refineries and crackers, adopt advanced manufacturing technologies by 2020. Besides laboratory technicians, students from SP’s Diploma in Applied Chemistry and Diploma in Perfumery and Cosmetic Science will also benefit from analytical instrumentation training at the SMARTLab@SP. The training will be part of the practicum of modules such as Laboratory Management, Instrumental Analysis, and current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP). The exposure to the latest technologies in the sector will equip students with emerging skills for the workforce when they graduate. (BioSpectrum Asia, 18 Sept 2018)
