A New Generation
“This is not your grandfather’s or grandmother’s national lab system anymore.”
Setting up a new lab can present many challenges, not least among them is managing your budget.
Warranties on Pre-Owned Analytical Equipment
Used equipment can help keep your costs down, but you'll want to make sure you have the right warranty.
Leadership and Staffing
A workflow management system can enhance your laboratory’s operation, no matter what type of lab you have.
A New World of Experimentation
Models and simulations continue to connect the real lab space with the virtual world
Preventing Contamination in Pipetting
This article addresses the three contamination types that originate from pipetting: pipette-to-sample contamination, sample-to-pipette contamination, and sample- to-sample contamination.

How it Works
How Sample Management in the Cloud Works
Problem: With non-automated sample management systems, searching and sharing information within and without the lab is slow and tedious.
How Microfluidic Technology for Implementing and Building Assays Works
Problem: Laboratories in the U.S. and abroad face obstacles such as limited budgets and are
constrained by inefficient workflow and a lack of qualified personnel and highly specialized
technicians to fill a growing number of professional laboratory positions.
