And what I really love about BioPhorum is that it is bringing both customers and vendors like myself to the same table where we can roll up our sleeves and get to work on this….When is biohazard truly biohazardous and when is contamination not dangerous?  I really, really value the again the BioPhorum platform to allow these conversations.

However, making sure we try to change this mindset toward implementing better practices for patient benefit, and collaborating in BioPhorum, are two of the biggest benefits in terms of technology adoption.
