Analytical Laboratory Operation & Management
Excellence in laboratory operation is a common goal in both research and production support labs, but each type of laboratory experiences different pain points and measurements of excellence.
In research laboratories, funding for sophisticated instrumentation and personnel with advanced degrees and experience is key. The role of the research lab is to offer advanced testing capabilities to support novel production processes and techniques, with typically no standardized testing protocols to follow. This is where the experience of the personnel is critical to successful support of the scientists completing the research.
Production support labs, particularly those supporting 24/7 operations, need to focus on maximum sample throughput with minimal variation in methodologies (many analyses guided by standard methods). Laboratory personnel include typically less experienced operators of laboratory instrumentation for the routine analyses and a chemist or two for the more advanced lab needs, both troubleshooting and method development.
With 16 years' experience operating in and managing both research and production support labs, ALSC has the background to understand the pain points of each laboratory operation and the ability to develop a roadmap for achieving, and protocols for maintaining, maximum operational efficiency. Let us help your laboratory achieve and maintain maximum excellence in operation and support.
