Now is the right time to take a fresh look at your lab's safety protocols and practices.
When managers think of optimizing laboratory performance, they might think of buying a new instrument. But that would be overlooking something they already havehuman performance optimization in the form of cross training. Such a method is becoming mo
Laboratory managers and team leaders, because of their knowledge of how research on a project unfolds, often play critical roles in deciding inventorship issues. Correct inventorship has to be considered whenever one or more of your staff members su
Science Matters - Latest trends shaping the scientific workforce.
Any number of variables during testing can cause inaccurate results, but most of the variables in the process can be rechecked and verified. As with most lab equipment problems,
A performance verification system assures accurate and precise data from refurbished automated liquid handlers.
Fundamental to the process of laboratory facility planning is an understanding of some basic design principles that ensure future adaptability. While each lab type remains unique, the purposeful application of modular design, zoning of tasks and imp
The latest equipment, instrument and system introductions to the laboratory market
Increased visibility of laboratory operations to management can be unnerving, especially for managers who have previously been more focused on the science than the business of the laboratory. To prepare for increased exposure, managers must develop s
Todays competitive market presents a fresh set of challenges to pharmaceutical companies. Good Practice consultants can assist those companies in achieving compliance by providing training on aspects of GMP for production and QC. They can also act a
A strong partnership between a supplier and a lab is necessary in order for the lab to remain competitive. It is important to build that strong foundation early in the relationship, as this creates a critical path free of obstacles. Maximizing produc
Smaller is better - smaller columns and particle size offer higher throughput and require less solvents
Water purification systems are required for a variety of applications, all of which require different degrees of purity. With a wide range of pure water systems available, it can be difficult to know which one will provide the best results for your
It is strongly recommended that a laboratory conduct its own internal quality audit with sufficient frequency to assure that test analyses provide continuously reliable results. An internal audit will also provide the lab with knowledge of how well i
The majority of the zetameters are based on the electrophoresis measuring principle where the zeta potential for a colloidal system is analyzed by measurement of the electrophoretic mobility of the particles.
Currently nanoparticles are measured by most particle size analyzers using scattered light; however in some cases this presents many physical restrictions and also requires the input of the refractive index as a measurement condition.
What application are you using the water for? This is the first question you must answer when choosing a water purification system for your lab.
