Share Article

Brian Garrett, B.S. Biology, LEED Green Associate Product Manager, Labconco Corporation

While Laboratory science can be a risky business, much of that risk can be mitigated. By communicating the best information to the correct people at the right time, a lab’s design can go a long way in enhancing its operations. Drawing from his experience with a recent construction project, Matt Anderson, a University Biosafety Officer, will share what worked and what did not at the University of Nebraska’s Veterinary Diagnostic Center.

Through this educational webinar, sponsored by Labconco, attendees will be able to identify and avoid traps in lab design and renovations. They will also learn to apply concepts in flexibility to overcome lab design hurdles.

Brian Garrett, a product manager at Labconco, will be the speaker for this event and will present the equipment vendor’s perspective. He will discuss the importance of good communication and selecting equipment that functions for today and tomorrow’s needs.

As a product manager, Garrett oversees the division of Biosafety Cabinets & Ductless Fume Hoods at Labconco Corporation. In 2010, he was accredited as a LEED Green Associate with US Green Building Council. Before joining Labconco, he was a laboratory director for the Institute for Environmental Health Laboratories, where he focused on planning and management of two labs in the beef industry, analyzing food-borne pathogens.

LabRoots will host the webinar September 26, 2017, beginning at 8 a.m. PDT. To learn more about this event, discover the continuing education credits offered, or to register for free, click here.
