At a special presentation ceremony hosted by Dr. Arif Butt, CEO and Co-Founder of online publisher SelectScience®, and Editor, Dr. Lois Manton O’Byrne, at Lab Innovations 2018, Birmingham, science industry leaders joined them to celebrate one year of the new Seals of Quality program, designed to further help scientists make important purchasing decisions.
Among other products from life science manufacturers, the Eppendorf Research® plus pipette (adjustable) was recognized as being within the top 0.1% of laboratory products that consistently receive the highest customer review ratings. The pipette was therefore announced as a Seal of Quality Bronze award winner.
What is a Seal of Quality?
The Seal of Quality program recognizes products that have consistently received the highest review ratings and aims to help scientists choose the best for their laboratories. There are four levels: Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze.
Seals of Quality recognize the top 0.1% of laboratory products that consistently receive the highest customer review ratings and are designed to enable scientists worldwide to see at a glance the instruments and services their peers love the most. The program has been praised as providing “invaluable” information for scientists.
Seals of Quality are allocated in line with strict criteria based on the quantity of reviews a product has received and the average rating of those reviews. There are four levels: Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze. SelectScience has now awarded Seals of Quality to a total of 34 lab products. These top-rated products are used in research across the scientific spectrum, but they all have one thing in common - the scientists using them absolutely love them.
"As we mark a fantastic first year for the Seals of Quality, we're delighted to be joined by some of the leading scientific manufacturers who have really embraced this celebration of excellence and seen the value of cultivating customer feedback through a trusted, independent platform," said Dr. Manton O'Byrne.
Dr. Butt added: "I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our reviewers around the world for sharing their valuable opinions and also to congratulate the Seal of Quality winners, who have been recognized by the people who matter most, their customers."
