Okay, so we have a blog…big deal. I mean everybody does, right? Just what the world needs. Turns out, there really aren’t a lot of places to go on the web that provide info about maintaining lab instruments. The purpose of this blog will be to try to point out useful resources wherever they may exist in an effort to help folks keep their lab instruments research-ready. Now, since our forte is plate-based instruments, we really won’t be looking at the whole gambit of things you can find in a lab. No freezer talk here. Ditto for water baths, microscopes, MS or GC gear. What we will be talking about are liquid handlers, plate readers, washers, incubators, thermal cyclers…you get the picture. Feel free to chime in and please try to keep it cordial. We are not looking for sales pitches or feature salvos, just sound advice and bits & pieces of useful info.
