What Our Labs Are Saying

“As a lab manager who already thinks "green", I signed our lab up for certification but didn't really expect to get beneficial suggestions beyond what our lab was already doing.  I was pleasantly surprised to get some additional ideas we hadn't thought to incorporate.  I especially liked how the program was not a "one size fits all" but tailored to each individual lab.”
