If your laboratory is stuck in the last decade or so, you have come to the right spot. Whether you’re building a time machine or simply working on school science projects, you need a lab that is designed and set up well. The best modern laboratories follow some of the current design trends in collaboration, sustainability, and digital transformation, all of which will help improve workflow and productivity while enabling greater flexibility. If you wish to stay ahead of the game, then keep your eye on a few of these hot laboratory design trends. Read on to learn more!
A Better Focus on Sustainability
Green up your lab to help minimize its overall environmental impact. To help improve energy efficiency, waste reduction, and water conservation, invest in some of the most efficient lab and office equipment, buy your supplies in bulk, and install some water-saving devices like aerators, low-flow faucets, foot pedal sinks, and automatic lighting setups. Pick the proper fume hoods to minimize chemical exposure and ensure worker safety. Upgrading to reliable power and cooling infrastructures that can keep up with your computing demands will help you reduce your laboratory’s carbon footprint way more into the future.
An Open-Concept Lab
In modern times, you will need the flexibility to meet new and changing specifications and requirements as time passes. Swap out any tight rooms and cramped spaces for an open-concept lab design that invites and welcomes collaboration. In medical and university laboratories open-concept designs promote teamwork and allow researchers the necessary space to develop closer professional and personal relationships.
Automation and Digitization
Digitization and automation are crucial for designing a modern laboratory. Robotics improve precision for more complex lab tasks, and automation will improve accuracy and efficiency. Cloud technology will provide scientists with remote access to information and enable a laboratory to store data, procedures, standard operating cycles, communications, and more. A lab connected with the latest apps, robots, automation, and information-sharing technology is a future laboratory.
Equipment and Furniture
Innovative and newer technologies in today’s world of science can take up a lot of space sometimes. Compact equipment and laboratory furniture can free up space in your lab, and configurable equipment will make the lab space much more flexible.
