The Workflow Driven Lab 
Many companies have recognized that their internal business units operate as a set of business processes. These business processes are also called workflows. Modern Laboratories are highly suitable to this workflow driven approach. In fact, the lab environments successful operation is predicated on the successful definition and adherence to workflows. It could be said that a modern  laboratory is an advanced process implementing construct. It is important that laboratory management software mirrors the process driven nature of the lab thereby increasing automation, shortening learning curves, improving data quality and increasing lab throughput. Download Whitepaper (Sponsored by: Sapio Science)
