How Your Lab Can Represent Workflows Effectively

Day-to-day lab operations rely on workflows to manage people, tasks, and systems so that work follows a consistent process every time. Defined workflows help ensure that all the steps are done in the correct order, are free from errors, and meet regulatory requirements.

Let’s take a closer look at lab workflows and how you can best represent your lab’s processes.
