SCIEX Launches Laboratory Optimization Services

What would you say to reducing your total run time by more than half? What if we told you that you could increase lab productivity by around 10-30%, reduce labor time by 30% and make five-figure material savings annually? You’d probably ask us what planet we’re on, but hear us out. With our help, some of our customers have experienced productivity gains just like these. In fact, one of our customers realized cost savings that equaled 4x the cost of the service, which doesn’t even account for productivity and throughput increases.

Unlock Your Lab’s Hidden Productivity
Today’s labs don’t have it easy, and as the world continues to push the limits of analytical science, that doesn’t look set to change. You are probably dealing with mounting numbers of samples, tighter than ever deadlines and the pressure to deliver high-quality data on time. You need your lab running like clockwork to keep up – not only with today’s demand but for what lays ahead.

Well the answer may be right in front of you. It’s quite likely that your lab could handle more samples, more complex workflows, and tighter deadlines, and at the same time cut costs, by finding latent capacity and removing unproductive activity.

  • Level the workload for more consistency
  • Implement standard work instructions for routine workflows
  • Identify the training requirements for new employees
  • Optimize your existing methods and streamline development of new methods
  • Improve data reporting with automated templates and calculations
  • Get higher uptime from your instruments with more efficient and regular maintenance
  • Empower your employees to use their creativity and experience to improve processing

SCIEX Laboratory Optimization Services
Having helped many customers to improve lab productivity over the years by re-engineering their analytical workflows, we decided to make it official by launching SCIEX Laboratory Optimization Services. Combining the principles of Lean Processing with our extensive knowledge of LC-MS workflows, we help to eliminate waste and raise efficiency by assessing current processes and implementing remedies to deliver the utmost efficiency.

SCIEX runs its business and its labs the same way it helps customers improve their workflows. Each member of our Lab Optimization Services team has over 15 years of experience in analytical labs and working with complex workflows.

Telling the PFAS story with pine needles

As an ever-expanding group of chemicals, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) require novel techniques to monitor their current and historical presence in the environment. Concerns over exposure to PFAS chemicals continue to grow, with some having known toxic characteristics and the potential effects of others remaining unknown.1 In addition, while PFAS are one of the most persistent synthetic chemicals to date, most of them hardly degrade in the environment.2 So, how long do traces of PFAS last in our environment? Two tools used to help answer this question are active samplers and passive samplers.
