In the fast-paced world of biotechnology and drug discovery, efficiency is key; as a time-saving resource, the Internet has been a widely used tool for expediting the collection of information needed to drive the research process. According to a recent survey, researchers spend an average of 66 minutes a day using the Internet at work.1 Much of this time is spent either looking for product and technical information or making online purchases of research supplies.

A Web site offering such information in an integrated fashion would help researchers save a tremendous amount of time, but unfortunately many Web sites provide incomplete information about products or are difficult to use. The recent launch of LabVelocity (www.labvelocity.com), a comprehensive online resource for the life sciences community, brings product and technical information together in a convenient, easy-to-navigate site.
