Performing cutting-edge research requires the most advanced tools and technologies. Laboratories are filled with essential equipment that makes a scientist’s work faster, easier, and in many cases, possible. Because the best quality data matters in publishing journal articles, a scientist’s success hinges on having access to lab instruments that can answer their research questions.
Like many other forms of technology, scientific equipment needs to be upgraded on a relatively regular basis. With restrictive budgets and costly new equipment, these decisions must be based on a compelling argument for return-on-investment.
