Moreover, a detailed competitive benchmarking of the players operating in the global laboratory informatics market has been done to help the reader understand how players stack against each other, presenting a clear market landscape. Additionally, comprehensive competitive strategies such as partnerships, agreements, and collaborations will aid the reader in understanding the untapped revenue pockets in the market.


  • The presence of major instrument providers of laboratory informatics has a major impact on the market. For instance, in June 2020, Agilent Technologies, Inc. and Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc.'s expanded multivendor control approach to laboratory informatics enables clients to pick the finest hardware and software for their needs. This execution of its mutual compatibility principle would allow customers of Agilent Technologies and Thermo Fisher Scientific to select a chromatography data system from either company Agilent OpenLab CDS or Thermo Fisher Chromeleon to manage analytical instruments from both companies.
  • Companies such as IDBS (Danaher.) partnered with Synthace in December 2021 in order to provide IDBS Polar users with cutting-edge data infrastructure for high-throughput process development (HTPD) studies. Synthace's cloud-based automation platform works in tandem with Polar's HTPD to accelerate bioprocess development by enabling better decision-making through more reliable data sets, comprehensive data analysis, and modern enterprise data management, allowing the team to adopt a faster throughput approach and significantly reduce timelines. This combined solution allows users to scale safely to hundreds of automated, parallelized experiments per month.

Impact of COVID-19

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the development of laboratory software and technologies really took off as people were working remotely, and thus digital solutions became a requirement for a productive laboratory. Also, increased laboratory demands for testing, genomics, drug development, and vaccinations also meant they had to become more efficient and provide faster, quicker, and more efficient results. In addition to this, these demands had to be fulfilled with laboratory space restrictions and demanding timelines. Thus, scaling up testing and research could only be solved by using laboratory informatics tools like LIMS and ELN. These tools helped scientists collaborate and work better even in a reduced-capacity working environment.

Many laboratory informatics manufacturers fastened their implementation process to help laboratories better fight the coronavirus. For example, CloudLIMS helped multiple labs set up within less than a week by implementing FDA-approved and preconfigured workflows. The key challenges faced by laboratories testing COVID-19 included rapid configuration of FDA-approved workflows, standardization, and validation of new COVID-19 testing methods, reporting results according to FDA and CDC guidelines, and following the internal regulatory CLIA ISO and HIPAA guidelines.
