A Year of OpenIOLabs

3055-stacked-option-1 for blog

2016 was the year that OpenIOLabs went out in to the world, after our hard work developing the product it was time to show you what it was made of. We think we achieved this, and more last year!

Pittcon Stand Web Ready

We launched the product in March 2016, at Pittcon, and our success at this fantastic show propelled us through the year. Since our launch we’re proud to see interest in the industrial internet of things and specifically ScriptML™ growing each month

Creating ScriptML™

The cornerstone of OpenIOLabs’ system is our ScriptML™ (Script Meta-Language), a translator that helps you achieve interoperability and work more effectively. This year we created and launched ScriptML™, instantly bringing more capabilities to our customers in science and industry.

ScriptML™ is flexible, scalable, simple to use and intelligent. Learn more about it in our blog post.

Working together: SICM and OpenIOLabs

What has been particularly useful for many of our customers is that SICM (Scanning Ion Conductance Microscope) now works with OpenIOLabs control. Ionscope became part of OpenIOLabs last year, bringing new capabilities to our customers.

The Ionscope SICM scan head is open sourced so you are able to build a system to your specific requirements with OpenIOLabs. Ionscope SICM was always powerful but now it has moved up a gear!
