Scientific Laboratory Protocol and Method Resources

In biological, medical, and pharmaceutical research, it is important to document the course of experiments precisely, so they can be reproduced by researchers in other labs. Laboratories can save time and money if they use trusted, reproducible methods instead of starting from scratch. LSL provides links to online resources of laboratory protocols and methods that are used primarily in the life sciences.
