If your growing laboratory needs to increase sample throughput, you may think your best bet is to purchase faster instrumentation. And that may be partially true, but there are many things to consider. It’s wise to ask yourself (and your account representative) a few questions, such as:
As you pursue these answers, you should also consider the far-reaching effects of a collaborative partnership — a strategic relationship with a proven expert who can review your entire operation and uncover efficiency gains throughout your lab testing workflow.

2. Expert guidance for business development
Before samples arrive in the receiving dock, there are thousands of decisions made that impact the outcome of sample analysis.
