PerkinElmer Launches Cloud Based Solution to Enable Remote Lab Management
The PKeye Workflow Monitor offers 24/7 monitoring capabilities to ensure high productivity and throughput
WALTHAM, Mass. – November 22, 2021 – PerkinElmer, Inc., a global leader committed to innovating for a healthier world, today announced the launch of its PKeye™ Workflow Monitor, a cloud-based platform enabling laboratory personnel to remotely manage and monitor their PerkinElmer instruments and workflows in real-time.
The PKeye Workflow Monitor offers scientists and researchers 24/7 access and visibility into their laboratory operations. With a cloud-based web design and centralized summary dashboard, authorized users can monitor and view real-time status updates, receive notifications, run completion data and view video clips remotely from their office, a meeting or the comfort of their homes.
“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.”
With the option to receive notifications via email or SMS, 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 authorized users to study them at a later date.
The PKeye Workflow Monitor is currently able to facilitate visual monitoring of the PerkinElmer JANUS® G3, Sciclone® G3 and Zephyr® G3 workstations. It is also compatible with the Company’s LabChip® GX Touch™ instrument and the chemagic™ 360 platform.
