Have you had to switch to different brands or settle for lower quality lab consumables due to the COVID-19 supply chain crisis? You're not alone in this situation.

Perhaps you even have a surplus of these consumables stored away. However, it's important to be cautious because substandard lab consumables can have a negative impact on scientific research in many ways.

Here are the top 5 implications:

  • Reduced accuracy: low-quality consumables can introduce errors, leading to inaccurate or inconsistent results in experiments and measurements.
  • Compromised reproducibility: unreliable consumables can make it difficult to reproduce results, undermining the scientific process.
  • Wasted resources: time, effort, and funds spent on experiments using inferior consumables may be wasted if results are unreliable or irreproducible.
  • Delayed progress: research advancements can be hindered by the need to redo experiments or troubleshoot issues caused by subpar consumables.
  • Damaged reputation: researchers relying on inferior consumables may inadvertently publish flawed data, which could harm their professional standing and credibility in the scientific community.
