Purchasing new lab equipment depends on different aspects.
Hard facts like technical data, warranty, delivery times, or pricing are easy to compare. Ergonomic qualities of products are more difficult to compare. Still, an evaluation makes sense.
All lab products should have ergonomic features. Just how a specific product has been ergonomically optimized depends on the type of product (a pipette, for example, differs from a freezer) and the provider.
The more you use an instrument, the more you will appreciate an ergonomic design of the instrument.
