Innovative European Laboratory Designs and Technologies

Wednesday, October 3
2:30 - 5:30 p.m.

Differing regulations, energy costs, business practices, and other factors mean that laboratory design and operation can be very different in Europe than in North America. This session profiled some of the interesting laboratory design approaches and technologies that have been identified through Labs21 UK events held in Belgium, Britain, Germany, and Switzerland over the last year. This symposium was of particular interest to domestic professionals and suppliers interested in new ideas and/or building or developing a European presence.
