For me, the best part about working with ABC Research Laboratories is the fact that I can always reach someone at the lab when I call. Even if it’s not my main contact, anyone from the ABC Research team works to help get my question answered. I also really enjoy that everything is electronic. I am able to receive results in only a couple of days using their LIMS service versus waiting for the mail. I appreciate the ‘going-green’ initiative in sending testing results as well as invoices via e-mail. It saves me a lot of time as I don’t have to scan in and save the results on our server. I can just hit save from my e-mail. ABC Research has also been very accommodating when I have special requests, whether it be taking pictures or doing a little extra communication.
