Securing lab analytics with blockchain technology
Making sure that laboratory production is secure can be a difficult task when suppliers are located around the world. The EU-funded B-LOCS project hopes to add another layer of protection to enhance this security, by using software to monitor analyses at laboratories in real time and creating notations on a blockchain. Any attempt to alter raw data anomalies or errors would be detected, since all file creation is recorded immutably on a blockchain by means of a smart contract. The B-LOCS program can also be set up to give off real-time alarms at any deviations.
