AR for Pharma Laboratories Laboratory scientists perform experiments which are highly sensitive to human error. Performed ?by hand? and with accuracy-precision envelopes as tight as +-5%, laboratory failure rates approach 20% and waste nearly 15% of revenue. And because FDA regulations require data to be generated from successful experiments only, when a failure occurs it must be repeated entirely, wasting all effort, time, and materials. Repeats contribute to massive backlogs of unattempted experiments. CROs, which are ?for-hire? laboratories, have nearly 10x the value in backlog compared to their recognized revenue. Through an AR headset, AVA digitally assists scientists by detecting discrepancies between their actions in the lab and the procedures they are following, directing scientists away from a mistake before it happens. And through automatic documentation, AVA also demonstrates compliance with chain of custody, standard operating procedures, and experimental protocols.
