Dr Mark Rogers, CEO Designate of ULab, will show you how you can gain access to expensive research equipment for hire or can make money from your existing equipment. ULab catalogues your laboratory equipment, letting you monitor activity using customisable booking and hiring options, both within your institution and with external collaborators/customers. Site visitors from anywhere can find and potentially book time on equipment. Managers gain an overview of their department/institutional systems, ensuring that expensive equipment is utilised in the best manner possible.
