You have been asked to purchase the “best” instrument to suit the needs of the department/institution for the next 5 years. Awesome! But wait – there are so many investigators and multiple themes of research. How do you satisfy everyone’s needs? Do they even know what they need? You’ve been given a specific budget, but your preferred instrument is already well in excess of the budget. Some investigators are demanding that you purchase a different system because the vendor sold them on the “versatility” and the price is closer to the budget; but that instrument is only appropriate for their specific research…

Join us and our expert panel for a discussion around important considerations for choosing the right instrument for your SRL.
