Find protocols and methods to recreate experiments.

What are laboratory protocols?

Used primarily in the life sciences, protocols provide individual sets of instructions that allow scientists to recreate experiments in their own laboratory. They provide instructions for the design and implementation of experiments that include:

  • the safety bias
  • procedural equipment
  • statistical methods
  • reporting and troubleshooting standards for experiments
