Today, Royal DSM N.V., a global company specializing in health, nutrition, and sustainable living, and LabTwin GmbH, the leading voice and AI-powered digital lab assistant, announce a multi-year license and collaboration agreement. DSM will apply the newly acquired technology in several of their Science & Innovation laboratories globally. Together, we intend to transform how science is performed in research and application labs providing significant value through speeding up innovation cycles at DSM and its partners worldwide.
“We are excited to see that LabTwin is already onboarded on multiple of DSM’s R&D premises globally with more than 100 scientists and technicians, and we are looking forward to supporting them further in their digital transformation journey,” said Magdalena Paluch, CEO of LabTwin.
LabTwin’s digital lab assistant enables hands-free data capture through voice notes or connected lab instruments while working at the bench and provides on-the-go access to safety or operational information. LabTwin also talks scientists through protocols and records any deviations or out of specification results. This data is then automatically structured by LabTwin’s deep learning capabilities and enriched with metadata. The digital assistant will form part of DSM’s wider digitalization strategy, including the full integration with DSM’s Electronic Lab Notebooks.
Willi Gottstein, Scientist and Project Manager at DSM explains “LabTwin has already become the digital assistant of many of our experimentalists, leading to better data and result tracking in the lab, FAIR data processing and more efficient reporting in the office. LabTwin significantly lowers the threshold to record observations leading to higher reproducibility of experiments and easier trouble-shooting.”. Hans Roubos, Director Digital Science and Technologies at DSM continues: “LabTwin offers us a Siri-like experience for the Lab with many options for further advancing our lab operations, from guiding our scientists through laboratory protocols to interacting with labware and storing data and observations in a smart, hands-free way”.
Both DSM and LabTwin shall provide more details on this exciting collaboration in the coming year.
LabTwin is creating the next generation of digital lab tools for smart labs, starting with the world's first voice-activated lab assistant. With LabTwin, scientists can collect data, access information, manage experiments and streamline documentation simply by talking. Using voice recognition and machine learning technology, LabTwin’s smart assistant simplifies data capture, structures valuable information, and provides suggestions to scientists in real-time so they can make more informed data-driven decisions. LabTwin is backed by BCG Digital Ventures and Sartorius. Its voice-powered assistant is used in chemical companies and in 7 of the Top20 Pharma around the world.
