PerkinElmer has launched the PKeye Workflow Monitor, a cloud-based platform enabling laboratory personnel to remotely manage and monitor PerkinElmer instruments and workflows in real-time.
The PKeye Workflow Monitor informs users of the start, stop and completion of operations. It can also notify users if manual intervention is needed, such as the replenishment of tips or need to refill reagents. With instruments enabled with video recording capabilities, the platform can also record and store specific events and errors, allowing authorised users to study them at a later date.
“With the PKeye Workflow Monitor, researchers can confidently walk away from their laboratory instruments without concern of disruptions to productivity or throughput,” said James Atwood, General Manager of Applied Genomics, PerkinElmer. “Through instant notifications and remote web-access, this platform provides users with confidence that their samples are moving efficiently through extraction, quality control and liquid handling processes.”
