The UK Bio Lab Network is run by Labstract to share knowledge and best practice across the UK’s life science laboratories. The network is free to join.

We host regular meetings and networking events to allow members to keep up to date with current technologies, working practices and topical issues.

Please contact us if you would like to sponsor our events.

These events are often held in combination with multi-supplier exhibitions, allowing networking members to see a broad range of featured technologies side by side. Previous exhbitions have focused on themes such as cell imaging and flow cytometry.
