Often referred to as the heart and soul of the ABRF, Research Groups (RGs) are organized by ABRF members to advance specific biotechnologies and analytical techniques for the benefit of core and research laboratories. This is done primarily by developing research studies whereby participating laboratories can gauge their ability to perform a given analytical technique(s) and, importantly, to gauge the effectiveness of that technique or methodology in real laboratory situations.
