It is still too early to gauge the exact impact of the world-wide financial meltdown on the laboratory sector. What has emerged thus far is a mixed picture based on industry and type of laboratory.
Efficiency Matters...Now More Than Ever
The work of lab management is changing to keep pace with the demands of the global workplace. By planning ahead and providing true customer service, labs can continue to efficiently operate well into the future.
One Laboratory's Journey Toward Green
ARUP Laboratories' Corporate Responsibility Program has produced impressive results in the areas of recycling, reusing, and reducing, increased employee involvement and enthusiasm, positive client feedback, and community support and recognition.
Knowledge Is Power
Through the measurement of specific key performance metrics (KPMs) on your assets, manufacturers and service providers, it is possible to turn knowledge into purchasing power.
No Lab is an Island Unto Itself
If you run the lab like a seperate island outside the company, you will not be able to demonstrate where the laboratory is adding value to the overall business.
