Triton College Upgrades LabWorks Systems With MeasureNet
June 26, 2006
Triton College in River Grove, Illinois has purchased a MeasureNet® network to replace LabWorks® as its primary system for electronic data acquisition in General Chemistry. It joins the College of Dupage in nearby Glen Ellyn as the first two campus's equipped with MeasureNet in the Chicago metropolitan area.
Triton's 100-acre campus lies just 14 miles west of downtown Chicago and serves some 17,000 persons per semester while maintaining an average class size of just 20.4 students. In addition to small class sizes, the college boasts state-of-the-art facilities and low tuition fees that save students an average of 90% versus nearby traditional 4-year programs. Triton's Associates Degree in Chemistry is a springboard to employment as a laboratory technician, while also preparing many for four-year programs that lead to eventual careers in medicine, dentistry, and veterinary science.
"Triton's strong reputation is based, in part, on its practical curriculum that year after year sends well-prepared graduates successfully into the workplace" said MeasureNet's Director of Marketing Michael Kurutz. " It's a perfect fit as MeasureNet was designed to operate with the 'look and feel' of instrumentation found in real-world science employment. MeasureNet's acclaimed intuitive design means students spend more time learning chemistry and less time on the facilitating technology."
MeasureNet Technology Ltd. manufactures patented, network-based data acquisition interfaces for science teaching laboratories. It is a spin-off of the University of Cincinnati's Department of Chemistry and is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio. Measurenet's award-winning, PC-reducing design helps reduce laboratory maintenance and operational costs while giving students access to high quality shared UV-vis spectroscopy, gas chromatograph connectivity, and an array of innovative probeware. Its acclaimed intuitive design provides improved transparency to enable better science-focused, not technology-focused, learning. Winner of the Ohio Governor's Award For Excellence in Energy Efficiency, MeasureNet networks are found in universities, community colleges, high schools, and vocational training centers across the United States and around the world.
