The June issue of Laboratory Equipment continues to celebrate the magazine's 50th anniversary with a retrospective on the 1960s. Additionally, the cover story details efforts to remove sample prep as a common bottleneck in the lab. Other articles discuss ELN lessons for food and beverage companies and the efficiency gains achieved by implementing a direct-to-slide printer. Special product sections include food and beverage and forensics.
Researchers from China are accused of divulging nonpublic results from an NIH-funded grant to a Chinese medical imaging company. However, one (in this case three) bad apple doesn’t spoil the whole bunch.
Sample preparation is one of the most important aspects of the research lab. It is the one operation used by more researchers than any other. It is the bottleneck that limits throughput. It is the operation that creates many of the errors generated in the lab. And it is now the operation that researchers focus on to improve their productivity.
Check out the products featured in our June issue, and more! For 50 years, Laboratory Equipment has been the leader in providing information on the latest new products and technologies for the research lab. Part of our editorial mission is to provide as broad a range of product information as possible.
Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELNs) have become standard fare for most pharmaceutical companies today—so much so that the “early adopter” path that pharma has taken to digitize research and development data has become a model for other industries looking to deploy similar solutions.
Printing labels directly onto slides helps eliminate handwriting and incorrect label issues, thereby improving patient safety and error reduction. A direct-to-slide printer can also contribute to more efficient, cost-effective lab operations by enabling on-demand color printing.
In May/June 1964, Laboratory Equipment published its first issue, focused on lab/pilot equipment, apparatus, instruments, materials and more. While Laboratory Equipment was enjoying its maiden voyage, so too were other companies, products, technologies and culture.
