  • Lab Rat Design is a small yet professional group. They worked hard to revise my figures for research paper publication. They were also very patient to switch my figures into different formats according to different journals' requirements. I was extremely satisfied with the speed and the quality of their work. So I highly recommend Lab Rat Design for your figure preparation.

  • I was very pleased with the schematic that Lab Rat Design developed for our publication. The Lab Rat Design Team was highly attentive to the message that we wanted our summary diagram to convey and the proofing process was seamless and executed in a timely manner. The quality of the overview figure that Lab Rat Design generated for us rivals those found in such publications as the Nature Reviews series. Working with the Lab Rat Design team was an all-around great experience
