The Society of Laboratory Automatization and Screening (SLAS) celebrated their annual exposition in Washington DC, bringing together the most important names in the business. Tecan was one of the few using virtual reality to demonstrate their latest innovations.
“We created an environment with large workstations that we could not have brought to the show (…) It ́s bringing something that would have been impossible to bring to a trade show and making it real and tangible and an exciting experience” – David Martyr, CEO of Tecan commented.
Bringing the Tecan Fluent to life
The interactive virtual reality experience created by realworld one presented Tecan ́s laboratory automation workstation: the Fluent. This instrumentation breaks new ground, delivering high capacity and outstanding speed while maintaining precision and accuracy.
Throughout the virtual experience, users learned about the Fluent ́s function, operation and about the Labwerx customization options.
“I really understood how to handle the instrument. It’s amazing” – Dr. Nitin Kumar, an exhibition attendee noted after using the virtual reality technology.
Therein lies one of the major benefits of virtual reality, namely the possibility to have product trainings that are as detailed and intricate as a training in real life would be.
The significant upside of virtual trainings, moreover, is that the physical location of employees is no longer a factor and that sessions can be recorded and replayed at a later stage.
This means that virtual reality is very cost efficient when used for product trainings, since there are no travel costs for international employees involved and once a supervisor records a session, it can be replayed by employees infinitely.
