It takes guts and skill to work in any capacity in a laboratory. The work is grueling, can be tedious, and requires safety equipment as the ones mentioned above. The handling of chemicals can be dangerous, requires training, and their lives in some cases may be put at risk, if the substances are deadly.
There is considerable training involved to become a laboratory assistant. Mostly, classes have to be completed, requirements from elder researchers surmounted, and a healthy interest in the materials being (more…)
Both the public and private sectors rely on scanners to conduct daily operations. These devices have become even more technologically sophisticated and serve a variety of functions. In addition to streamlining certain tasks, scanners can provide access to vital data. What follows are several different types of scanners along with some of their benefits.

Chemistry has come a long way from the do-it-yourself kits in grade school. Now you’re putting together compounds you once only dreamed of and are making a career out of the heady combination of science and electronics. While you might be feeling rather proud of how far you’ve come, never let it be said you [...]
