A combination of networks, computational, storage infrastructure and the scientific instrumentation (equipped with sensor networks) composes a new kind of e-Infrastructure. The integration of scientific instruments into e-Infrastructure empowers possibilities in conducting experiments. The development of technologies that allow remote and shared access to laboratory instruments opens up new opportunities for researchers. This paper presents an approach to integrate the laboratory instruments with e-Infrastructure, focusing on the results of the EU FP7 DORII project.
