Innovation Lab at ABI-LAB

The Innovation Lab is home to over 20 of our small and large instruments, and is available at no additional charge to residents to use. We use booking software that each tenant has access to, which allows for seamless scheduling practices within our facility.

Thermo Fisher has three different supply centers within this space, and they bill directly to residents for seamless acquisition of materials. Lab consumables are delivered and managed directly by Thermo Fisher and their appropriate representatives, and available for all to use. With the supply center, residents can count on productivity with these materials at their fingertips.

Many of our instruments have been provided by Thermo Fisher or Eppendorf, and additionally require supplemental training. These trainings are either paid for by ABI-LAB or by the resident, and orchestrated by representatives from Thermo Fisher.
