Contracting with a service provider to properly and correctly service your laboratory pipettes is an important step in the security of your laboratory liquid handling system. Unfortunately, there are many different providers to choose from with widely varying procedures and competencies. Even among accredited providers, quality can vary from poor to excellent, so it pays to make this decision carefully. Be careful! Choosing the wrong provider can cause added expense and problems.
Conference exhibits and industry vendor shows have historically been excellent events for bringing buyers together with sellers through… wait for it… face-to-face interactions. Although the standard business transaction of placing paper purchase orders from colossal paper catalogs has shifted over to electronic systems, the process where supply meets demand still requires the development and nurturing of business relationships. For example, I recently attended the 2014 American Society for Microbiology Conference exhibit in Boston, where I introduced myself to 25 key business representatives in a four-hour period. I have subsequently established a dialog with 10 of those people, each with whom a valid business opportunity was established.
