Your daughter has an impressive goal for next summer. Although she is spending a quiet summer on her small liberal arts campus this summer, just working a few hours in the admissions office, she is also spending time with one of the biology professors to write grants for next summer’s research opportunity. With the goal of traveling to Arizona to do some genetic research in a large lab, the grant writing itself is providing substantial experience in a possible research career.
From detailing the work that she hopes to conduct using portable water testing equipment and a constant temperature circulator, your daughter has enjoyed the grant writing process and practice. And while the admissions office work and tours seem rather simple, compared to what she wants to accomplish next summer, those hours have allowed her to work with the small college leaders who may be helpful in finding the funding for next summer’s goals.
although your daughter is certain that she wants to take her completed Biology degree and go into the women’s health services field, two of her Biology professors think that she is going to love the opportunity to do research work. They hope that immersing her in talk of scienceware products and scientific tools they will pique her interest.
Scientific Research Enables Many of the Products and Processes That We Will Use in the Future
Advancements in scienceware products allow research students and professionals to get more accurate and more efficient results. While thousands of researchers across their various and specific fields continue their work, companies that strive to achieve the advancement of scienceware products can aid all of these researchers. Consider this information about the research industry and the tools that they typically employ in their work:
- Conventional fume hoods, bypass fume hoods, auxiliary air fume hoods, and specialty hoods are the four basic types of chemical fume hoods used by researchers across the country.
- Approximately 13,500 establishments make up the U.S. commercial medical and diagnostic laboratory industry.
- All four of these types of hoods are used to keep toxic or irritating vapors out of the general laboratory workspace. In their most general purpose, fume hoods typically function with a hood face velocity of 100 feet a minute.
- The people working in the lab, the processes they follow, and the equipment they have and how they use it are the main three variables that dictate the level of efficiency in any laboratory.
- 328,200 medical and clinical laboratory technicians were working in the U.S. as of 2014, the most recent year data was available, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
- 6.2 million scientists and engineers who were working in the U.S. in 2012, made up 4.8% of the workforce, according to the Congressional Research Service.
