Choosing a laboratory notebook

Mitchells Laboratory Notebooks offer a wide range of laboratory notebooks with different layouts, colours and paginations available, in addition we can produce semi-customised or customised books.

A well-kept laboratory notebook provides a reliable reference for writing up materials, methods and the results of a study. It is a legally valid record that preserves your rights or those of an employer or academic investigator to your discoveries. A comprehensive notebook allows you to reproduce any part of a methodology completely and accurately.
