A high degree of instrument uptime is essential for your core lab.
It ensures that a maximum number of users can image their time and resource-consumingly prepared samples, using top-performing equipment. For them, this gives security for meeting their tight submission dates for their theses and papers.
For you as the core facility manager, it supports reaching the desired high equipment utilization, while also securing the cash-flow that your financial plan is based on.
The fast pace at which computer and software technology is evolving has been an important accelerator of scientific progress.
At the same time, this speed of evolution also means, that what has been state-of-art today, is quickly becoming antiquated.
Financing workstation replacements and software upgrades from running lab budgets is often not foreseen and grants typically only focus on capital equipment.
