With sustainable labs requiring active participation from users, new initiatives such as My Green Lab® formalize a comprehensive management approach. Addressing how lab design can integrate this approach, this presentation will explore optimal lab environments for efficient operations. Looking at a radical new approach of managing lab space and equipment illustrates how far lab management can advance, taking a holistic approach at how labs are designed and operated.
