Automation will play an increasing role in future laboratories. Robotics and Big Data are two components, as well as Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality.

Principal Architect and Lab SME Kieron McGrath has in depth experience on the impact of these elements on lab infrastructure and design. As an architect his focus is on the design requirements that are likely in the future and the recommendations that should be incorporated into current projects now to facilitate a smooth transition from what we currently utilise to what we may not know is coming.

This fundamental change in laboratory design and construction builds on the learnings of the past and the emerging technology of the present, dramatically changing how we think of laboratories and benching solutions, bringing the future to us today or facilitating the smooth transition during the life of the building.


Join Kieron at the PDA Europe Robotics & Automation Conference in Dublin, Ireland on 16th May.
