Well Plate Preparation Services Add Quality of Life
Aside from what our technical quality does for your data, there are three major ways that we improve the quality of your life:
1) Efficiency – ordering, shipping, and receiving become our problems, not yours
2) Safety – repetitive strain injury is a major concern for workers in the life sciences
3) Turn around time – we have many of the most common reagents in stock and on hand. We are committed to never running at more than 80% capacity and typically run at 50% or less of production capacity.
Your time is valuable and irreplaceable. Act accordingly. Troubleshooting experiments takes time–more time when the pipetting quality is suboptimal. Ordering takes time. Discarding shipping materials costs money and takes time. Robotics have a learning curve and require maintenance ranging from software and hardware updates to simple cleaning.
You are a scientist. Shouldn’t scientists spend their time on science?
Our service frees up your time and allows you to focus on your research, while outsourcing the pipetting to us. We have the resources to do the job quickly while ensuring precision and accuracy.
What is Repetitive Strain Injury?
Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is an extremely common occurrence that results from repetitive movement overuse. More specifically, it is an injury to the musculoskeletal and nervous systems that affects muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues. While it initially begins as a minor twinge of discomfort, the severity can gradually increase, causing aching, tenderness, tingling, extremity weakness, and throbbing or pulsing sensations if not properly addressed.
- Repetitive Strain Injury affects hundreds of thousands of American workers and is the nation’s most common and costly occupational health problem, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
- There are various types of repetitive strain injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, and radial tunnel syndrome.
- The most commonly affected area of RSI is the arm, wrist, or hand.
- Psychological stress and monotony can worsen the symptoms of RSI.
- Repetitive movement in one part of the body can affect muscles in another part of the body.
In a laboratory setting, pipetting is a prime example of an action that can bring about RSI in one of the most commonly affected areas of the body: your arm, wrist, or hand.
Turn Around Time
We purchase large volumes of plasticware and other reagents, so they are conveniently on hand at any given time. Our operations ideally run at 50% capacity but never more than 80% capacity so we can guarantee rapid turnaround time, and we manufacture much of our own automation for easy updates and maintenance. All of these factors enable us to rapidly respond to increases in demand.
