Excellent Communications Design

LANEXO Earns Gold at 2021 German Design Awards


In the 2021 German Design Awards, the LANEXO® Inventory Manager was awarded the Gold Distinction for Excellent Communications Design in the App Category—the highest such distinction possible, awarded for excellent, comprehensive and innovative design work.

The annual German Design Awards, given by the German Design Council, are among the most prestigious of their kind worldwide. Their purpose is to discover, showcase and recognize unique new design trends. The Council honors high-caliber submissions from the fields of product and communication design across the globe every year. 

The LANEXO® Inventory Manager was recognized for its combination of inventory, safety and compliance management features, which help professionals in strictly regulated analytical and research labs create inventory efficiencies, optimize safety, ease compliance and digitize their paper trails. The Android and web apps of this revolutionary solution make real-time data access a reality, which not only simplifies highly complex lab activities but reduces the risk of human error, minimizes paper consumption and cuts waste. 

“LANEXO® is a wonderful example of how helpful digitalization can be.”

The LANEXO® Inventory Manager, which was launched in early 2020, was created to help customers manage every step of the consumables lifecycle with a focus on efficiency, safety, quality and compliance.

The system’s RFID labels provide fast real-time access to data, such as consumables’ opening and expiry dates as well as lab reagent safety data. This reduces human error and safety risks and improves the reliability and traceability of compliance documentation for digital inventories.
In our preliminary trials with customers:

  • The LANEXO® Mobile App could slash the annual time required to manage inventory by 97%—from 100 to only 3 hours a year.
  • Similarly, the time needed to check, find and document consumables per experiment was reduced from 50 to 4 minutes—prompting one of our customers to call the LANEXO® Inventory Manager a “game changer.”
