Keep your lab technicians happy so they’re productive, you retain them, and your job is a little bit easier.
Staff turnover can be a big problem for clinical diagnostic labs. Especially when hiring is as hard as it is today.
And the main reason staff leave a lab is because of friction between coworkers.
And guess what causes friction between coworkers?
Sharing. Sharing space. Sharing equipment. Sharing processes.
So, if you can use space better, and if you can use equipment budget better, you can overcome the most common reasons staff leave.
We build essential lab equipment to help clinical lab managers overcome exactly these problems.
How to overcome friction around your lab essentials and diagnostic equipment.
Space in precious in the lab. So how do you overcome friction around shared space?
1. Build more efficient workstations.
Look for the smallest footprint possible for your stirrers and shakers and centrifuges - all your essentials.
2. Organize spaces better
Color coding helps spaces stay organized. It’s one of the reasons we manufacture products like tube racks in a rainbow of colors. Have your technicians identified places where better organization would help? Look for the color coded solution on our website.
Shared equipment has been known to cause heated conversations in the lab. So how do you overcome friction around shared equipment?
1. Find a way to reduce the need to share essentials.
Put more essential lab equipment in every bench space. If you have a mini centrifuge that won’t need maintenance and won’t break down for the next 5 years, you can reallocate the repair and maintenance budget from your old mini centrifuge to buying a few more of these reliable units (your 5-year warranty from us almost guarantees it won’t break down).
2. Invest in multi-function instruments.
Equipment like the MagFuge only occupies a small amount of space, allows operators to spin or stir their samples, and costs half of what you’d pay for a dedicated mini centrifuge and magnetic stirrer. Put a few in your lab and suddenly there’s a lot less sharing (and arguing).

But somewhere around the periphery of it is the person or people who think more about the budget.
Maybe it’s your manager or director. Maybe it’s a board.
