Just like every other field, laboratories are always evolving and changing. What was cutting edge just a few years ago may now be seen as behind the times. If you are going to be competitive in this line of work, you need to make sure your lab is staying in touch with the latest and greatest that the market has to offer.
Nothing is permanent in business. Just when it seems that there is an obvious trend or pattern to the way things work, someone comes along to disrupt the market and change the way everyone operates. With that in mind, it is worthwhile to take a look at the trends to watch over the coming year in the life sciences market.
Doing lab work is all about accuracy. No matter what kind of work you are doing specifically, it should go without saying that your results need to be as accurate as possible. While part of that accuracy is going to come down to your personal performance, a large part is going to be up to the equipment that you use in the lab. With the right gear available, precise results will be far easier to achieve.
Buying a piece of equipment for a lab is never an easy task. Such equipment tends to be rather costly, so you don’t want to make a mistake. Even if you have years of experience working in your field, you may still get a little nervous before committing to an order. While this could apply to any of a number of different types of laboratory equipment, we are talking specifically about liquid handlers in this article.

Traditionally, pharma manufacturing has been performed using a batch approach. This has been the standard for decades, but that appears to be changing. More and more, pharma companies are looking to continuous manufacturing as the way of the future. Many other industries have long since switched to continuous manufacturing, but pharma has been slow to make the change, for a variety of reasons. Thanks to the development of technology and other factors, the time seems to be right for pharma to fully embrace continuous manufacturing.
Developing new products in the life science world is a daunting task. Well, to be fair, developing a new product in nearly any sector is a major challenge. This is particularly true with life science tools, considering the significant development time – and financial investment – which tends to be required. Of course, a successful company is going to have to get over this hurdle, one way or another. Without a successful new product development initiative, a company will struggle to remain relevant in the market.
Laboratory equipment is a valuable asset. Quality equipment comes at a significant cost, and you want to be sure to return as much value from that initial investment as possible as the years go by. When you wind up with surplus laboratory equipment for one reason or another, it is important to have a plan.
In the first part of this article, we highlighted some of the common pieces of equipment you will find in a chemistry lab. Here, we are going to continue on with that theme, adding a number of additional pieces of gear to the list.
Chemistry is a field filled with equipment. If you are going to perform any meaningful experiments in a chemistry lab, you are going to need at least a basic collection of pieces of laboratory equipment. Some experiments call for only the basics, while others will require the use of complex, expensive pieces. In this article – the first of a two-part series – we are going to take a look at some of the basic items which are typically found in a chemistry lab.
Earlier this week, we were pleased to unveil our collaboration with BioSurplus. This relationship establishes an East Coast base of operations for BioSurplus that will optimize returns for companies seeking to sell their surplus. The collaboration will also help lower shipping costs for customers purchasing equipment in the eastern half of the U.S.
