"The level of innovation coming out of RBR is a reflection on our staff who strive to design and build scientific instruments of exceptional quality with enthusiasm and creativity. We very much appreciate this recognition of the wider community that such efforts make a difference. If you are not enthusiastic about your own work, change jobs - life is too short to work at something that holds no pleasure for you!"
