I got to take a tour of the undergraduate lab at
California State University, San Marcos with Dr.
Robert Lafe. His lab is one of the first to have the
new Biotage® Selekt Flash Purification System paired
with the Sfär columns. We discussed how his undergraduate
researchers were impacted by the broadened
capabilities and their opportunity to learn about new
instruments, and how it has affected his own research
in his goals to gain tenure at the university.
