Driven by the need for greater cost effectiveness and the desire to extract the most value from pricey assets, laboratory managers are converting their unused, excess and replaced equipment into cash.
A key factor in maximizing return-on-investment in the lab is the ability to align the right scientific instruments, i.e., fixed lab assets, with science initiatives. Maintaining the right scientific instruments can help companies increase biological screening efficiency, shorten the drug development process, and meet milestone objectives.
The four key criteria in selecting the right rapid microbial method share a common trait: a strong correlation to financial results. Without a strong value proposition, you simply wont have the support of your finance and operations management.
In order to thrive in today's work environment, you need to change the way you look at time. The key is not just managing your time, but maximizing it.
In the great global game to woo and win scientific talent, more employers are extending non-cash motivators as the proverbial carrot. Attracting and retaining talent without pay increases is absolutely a discussion people are having.
In order to win, all members of a team have to understand the vision and recognize their role in accomplishing the teams goals.
How one LC column manufacturer used a scientific data management system to decrease operational costs and accelerate product delivery.
The latest equipment, instrument and system introductions to the laboratory market.
Optimized for users of PCR systems employing ROX as a passive reference for normalization.
Features Silconazyne™ filtration system, allowing for one gas phase filter that fits most gas phase applications.
Feature unitized flame retardant composite resin construction for total chemical and corrosion resistance.
Validated for the organic solvent extraction of 25(OH)D from blood serum using liquid-liquid extraction (partition chromatography).
Optimiser™ Features a microfluidic channel as the reaction chamber (instead of the well), reducing assay times and sample/reagent consumption.
Includes an Auto-Fill feature allowing unattended evaporation of samples generated by any separation or extraction system.
Bio-Cool Provides low temperature cooling to either -40ºC or -80ºC Does not require expendable liquid nitrogen and the associated pumping, re-filling, and storage challenges posed by a cryogenic liquid Immerses sample.
Allows easy quantification of sulfated GAGs in tissues such as cartilage, cultured chondrocytes, and chondrocyte culture solution.
Minimizes stress on HVAC systems without compromising protection for personnel and the environment.
Scans full wavelength spectrum (absorbance, percent transmittance, intensity) in less than one second.
AQUACOUNTER® AQV-2200S Small volume titration cell requires only 20mL of titration solvent for accurate measurements.
Designed to quickly and safely remove solvents from 96- or 384-well plates.

Connie Schreppel, director of water quality at Mohawk Valley Water Authority, oversees a 2,100-square-foot water quality lab, a 300-square-foot laboratory located in a treatment plant as well as the operations of the less-than-typical Adirondack watershed lab.
The GeneAtlas System is the first personal microarray solution that makes the power of microarrays accessible to life scientists in their own labs.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has developed the Thermo Scientific Multiskan GO UV-Vis spectrophotometer which offers free wavelength selection for both 96- and 384-well plates and various types of cuvettes.
The most accurate method of measuring SNR is to ratio the peak Raman intensity to the average intensity of a signal free baseline region.
Laboratory vacuum pumps are one of the most ubiquitous pieces of laboratory equipment, and also one of the most difficult to choose.
