Le Labo Durable 


Challenges : 

  • Digitalisation / Use of big data
  •  Laboratory layout, Ergonomics
  • Sustainable development, CSR, more 'responsible' practices

Target users: Managers, researchers, technicians. The target markets are scientific laboratories in general and analytical science laboratories in particular.

Climate issues are now impossible to ignore. Today, it is common practice to monitor water and energy consumption at home in order to consume as little as possible (for financial reasons and/or to save money). However, this is less obvious in laboratories, and monitoring tools specific to the uses of analytical chemistry were non-existent. This is the raison d'être of Consolab, a tool enabling laboratories to monitor and reduce their contribution to climate change through their consumption and activities.

Consolab is a web application that can now be used to:

-Track the laboratory's electricity consumption by instrument/station and convert this data into kgCO2eq

-Track water consumption and convert this data into kgCO2eq

- Set consumption targets and customise laboratory trajectories

Detailed graphs are generated automatically to monitor consumption and identify the items that consume the most so that an action plan can be put in place to reduce the laboratory's GHG emissions.

These data (values or graphs) can be exported to enable laboratories to track their commitments and efforts to comply with the increasing requirements of legislation in terms of reducing GHG emissions.

Consolab is one of the tools provided by LABO DURABLE, which is heavily involved in the development of metrics for scientifically measuring the environmental impact of laboratory activities and then proposing reliable solutions for reducing it...

During the deliberations .... Among the applications received, it is clear that exhibitors at Forum LABO PARIS 2023 are investing primarily in the development of products to meet the major challenges facing our society. These include the life sciences, particularly health, with the emergence of new therapies and the consequent need for new products. It is therefore essential to have more efficient technologies and to automate processes in order to reduce production times and costs and improve product quality.

Of course, the emergence of climate change is also at the heart of exhibitors' concerns, and many projects include the notion of sustainability and environmental impact in their development. Finally, digitalisation is omnipresent, enabling many tasks to be improved and automated, whether for product storage, production or control.

There are also interesting developments in artificial intelligence, and there is no doubt that this discipline will gain in importance in all areas in the years to come.

This tool is a decision-making aid for any laboratory manager needing to find funding for research programmes.


LO-DGT for monitoring the concentration of micropollutants in water

Challenges: Technical performance, Sustainable development

Target users: Managers of aquatic environments and environmental analysis laboratories.

A passive sampler (LOD-GT) has been developed to collect, over a defined period (1 to 4 weeks), the average concentration of micropollutants in surface water or industrial water. This procedure overcomes the wide variations in micropollutant concentrations in water observed during spot sampling. In addition, the passive sampler, consisting of an adsorbent phase, concentrates the micropollutants and therefore improves the sensitivity of the measurement.

A panel of 11 users from the public and private sectors. The role of the jury is to assess the potential of the innovations in relation to the real and concrete needs of the market. To this end, the jury assesses each innovation using a pre-defined grid and criteria.

The awards ceremony will take place during the Gala Evening on Tuesday 28 March at the show.
