Engineering | DEfECT Lab

Defect Lab won a second place prize for the first annual Laboratory Safety Innovation Award, sponsored by ASU’s Laboratory Safety Committee in conjunction with Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) and the office of Knowledge Enterprise Development. The lab received a $500 award for making use of an innovative idea to improve overall lab safety.

Group members Pablo Coll and Tara Nietzold were there to accept the award and provide a brief presentation on the innovation, a free software called Quartzy. To prevent unsafe situations caused by outdated chemical inventories, Defect Lab uses Quartzy to place orders and update their inventory in one simple step.
