Labright A&P

Organizing and managing an A&P lab has become more challenging in a pandemic environment. With a myriad of resources available, it can be difficult to understand how to coordinate it all and then how to organize it in a way that is engaging and easy to maintain and promotes active learning.

That’s why with LabRight A&P we go beyond providing the lab essentials. In addition to a hybrid manual ready for use (learn more), we have customizable 3D models and simulations, slides, images, a database of labs, pools of questions, and different assessment types. We don’t leave it up to you to stitch your lab together; you have done enough of that.

LabRight Biology

LabRight Biology is perfect for all three parts of the lab: pre, in, and post. Students are assessed and automatically graded on their specific data. Post-lab is perfect for calculations and reports, and our auto-grading and essay-assist tools can drastically cut down on the time instructors spend grading.

Additional LabRight Biology features:

  • After being assessed on their own data and calculations, individual lab data is aggregated and displayed for the entire class to analyze.

  • Integrated graphing tool eliminates the need for students to learn Excel or Google Sheets.

Use as little or as much digital as you want and combine with print if that’s the best route for your course. However you mix it, a project manager will make sure it works perfectly and integrates into your LMS. No more headaches managing your lab alone – just complete solutions that make the digital experience right for your course.

LabRight Chemistry

LabRight’s origins are in chemistry, and chemistry is where we continue with market-leading innovations.

  • Our integrated graphing tool eliminates the need for students to learn Excel or Google Sheets. It’s ideal for kinetics labs and temperature curves.

  • Customizable ICE tables are perfect for acid-base and titration labs and help prepare students for lab.

  • Real-time assessment and grading of students’ data and display of aggregated data for the entire class to analyze.

  • A molecular modeling tool is perfect for a variety of labs and can be auto-graded.

Our Story

For over a decade we have partnered with instructors to meet their lab goals. When it came time to assist them with digital labs we observed and asked a lot of questions. We sat in on labs, held focus groups, and created a board of teaching advisors with the goal of identifying and solving problems for our stakeholders. What evolved from our campus interactions with students, TAs, lab coordinators and managers, instructors, and department chairs was LabRight.

By continuing to ask important questions, we will continue solving problems for our customers: how to make labs more efficient, to accomplish more with fewer resources, to save on grading time, and to deliver the creation of “holiday labs” which are virtual labs that you can use for short lab weeks, like the weeks featuring Labor Day or Presidents’ Day.

Here’s what our end-users love about LabRight:

  • Administration – In-lab time can be reduced, so more students can cycle through labs without the hassle and huge expense of having to build new lab facilities.

  • Full-time instructors – Our digital tools make the lab experience more efficient plus we set up the labs and provide support all term long.
  • Teaching Assistants – Grading is easier! Also, with more prepared students, lab time can be about executing the lab.

  • Students – Lab is an engaging experience and lab work can be done anywhere there is internet.

The LabRight Story

Started over five years ago, LabRight evolved from hours of meetings with instructors and students.

Testimonials

“I have been developing a custom laboratory text for years, and putting questions in my college’s LMS. To be able to combine the content and the assessment in one place, makes pedagogical sense, but I didn’t have the means to do it. Van-Griner has made this possible, and I am thrilled with the outcome. Not only have I been able to incorporate my content, I have really loved being able to incorporate custom BioDigital 3D models.

“The other fantastic thing about Van-Griner is the people. They take an interest in you and your class in an effort to understand your needs. The technical aspect of putting together the book was handled completely by Van-Griner. They were flexible, accommodating, and very quick to make a change if I didn’t like the way something turned out. What’s more, since implementing the new lab text, I have less work to do throughout the semester. Van-Griner even sets everything up with my not-so-friendly LMS at the beginning of the semester. The people are fantastic, and I feel like I really lucked out!”

–Corey, University of North Carolina

“Outstanding staff and people at Van-Griner. I have worked with them for years and even came back to them after going with another group. Won’t leave again as the service, quality, and commitment that I have received from Van-Griner is really great. Couldn’t be happier.”

–Paul, Bowling Green State University

“I’ve been very impressed over the past 10 years with Van-Griner. The quality of the lab manual we produced is better than expected. When we had to create a digital manual due to COVID-19, the Van-Griner team stepped up and integrated it with our university’s learning management system. Outstanding people to work with!”

–Jeff, University of Akron
