Five design concepts for teaching laboratory success

Katelyn Deckert
Best practices and lessons learned from the classroom. Keeping the attention of 30 students is a challenge in any classroom. In a teaching laboratory, each new day can feel like its own unpredictable experiment, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Laboratory instruction and classroom management can be improved when lab layouts and classroom designs are optimized. Consider the following five design concepts for teaching laboratory success.

Keeping it cool: how biopharma facilities can use an old technology in a new way

Gerry Williams
In the pursuit of efficiency, productivity and staying ahead of the competition, we often seem to chase the next piece of shiny equipment or inventive approach, but sometimes, a good old-fashioned method applied in a different way can provide an innovative and effective solution. When it comes to cooling pharmaceutical facilities and their processes, we don’t necessarily need the most modern refrigeration technology.

The Scientific Method at Work: Designing Labs for Productivity

Dave Miller
Not all labs are created equal. Why do some research facilities produce more patents? Others have greater throughput given the same space and time. Using evidence-based research, designers and lab owners/operators alike can enjoy the benefits of laboratories built to champion productivity.
