With the amount of data currently being generated, we are in a unique position to find diagnoses and treatments for a multitude of diseases. However, the progress of lab technologies in generating data ...
The initial cost of buying paper and notebooks is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to determining the real costs of paper in the laboratory.
Many day-to-day routine laboratory operations are still carried out using paper-based systems for everything from recording test results to managing chemical inventories to documenting and scheduling instrument calibrations.
This reliance on paper is not just expensive, it also decreases the efficiency of the laboratory workplace and leaves the laboratory vulnerable to having valuable data misplaced, lost or destroyed.
Where do we begin to measure the real cost of paper in the laboratory?
