What people are saying:

"After working in the lab as a research scientist for 13+ years, I decided to move into operations. Being a part of the LabOps Unite community has been a huge resource for me. It’s nice being part of a professional community, and the collective knowledge of the group has come in handy on several occasions. I would highly recommend this group to anyone that works in laboratory operations.”~ Matt Zubrowski
“LabOps has been a game-changer in my day-to-day Operational role. I often tap into the network of experts to tackle operational challenges and smooth out some of our processes. When I hit a roadblock or have a burning question, I post it on the LabOps website or dive into the multiple resources available. It's become a virtual toolbox, making life much easier. Great resource and I encouraged my colleagues to join it!”~ Maria Martin
“Since I became part of LabOps Unite it gives me the feeling of being part of a fraternity. I say that because you have endless resources and you always feel like there is someone you can always run to if you need help.”~ Edson Jean
