The new product-focused social networking website LabWrench (www.labwrench.com) has released a comparison engine on a number of key lab equipment product categories. This feature compliments the fast-growing website by giving lab individuals the ability to filter through a defined set of product features based on their requirements and output a side-by-side comparison with comprehensive specifications and details.

"The depth of these specifications is second to none in the industry," said LabX Media Group President, Bob Kafato. "Take our Centrifuge Category for example, nowhere online can you delve into the purchase process of a centrifuge and define your requirements for maximum spin speed, requirements for refrigeration and tube capacity, and then sort the matching products side by side however you want. It puts all the details in front of the lab purchaser and that helps them make smart informed decisions".

Work has been completed to open up 20 product categories for comparison as a start. Melanie Playne, LabWrench Manager, outlines, "We focused on the core products that every lab has interest in, from basic lab equipment such as Analytical Balances, Lab Shakers, Lab Stirrers, Fume Hoods, Freezers to even the more advanced analytical instruments like Spectrophotometers and Microplate Readers. We're just getting started and getting more and more data loaded into the comparison".

Vendors are equally excited to participate by providing additional data that sometimes cannot be found anywhere else on the Web, it also gives them an opportunity to get their products in front of users who know exactly what they're looking for and understand the value of being found in our filter system.

The core of LabWrench is still the community and the discussions and questions that scientists are asking about their lab equipment on a daily basis. Playne adds, "Questions are pouring in. Scientists can now use their peers to troubleshoot, I've seen questions submitted and responses posted within minutes, now that's exciting!"
