We're excited to announce that LabVoice's platform for scientific virtual assistants won the 2020 Merck Connectivity Challenge!
Each year, Merck's Innovation Team collects a number of applicants who have the best "utilization of a mobile/connected device (cell phone, tablet, etc.) in a laboratory environment."
The criteria for determining the winner includes:
Enablement of a new activity not able to be performed previously in the lab
Reduction of the workflow time or improve efficiency for a given lab process or protocol
Improved performance of an experimental result
LabVoice was one of three great finalists, including Antibody & Product Development Lab and our partners at Connected Labs, and ultimately won the committee's vote, validating the effort that the LabVoice team and customers have put into developing the technology.
