Battelle uLAB

The 4,500-square-foot Battelle uLAB is located at our headquarters in Columbus, Ohio. The facility has been specially designed to facilitate the observation and evaluation of human behavior as participants demonstrate their use of various medical devices, consumer products or software systems.

Our user lab features:

  • Five rooms configured to test everything from hardware and software to full-scale interiors for office and home environments.
  • Private intake rooms and a medical exam table for clinical consultations (for studies that have a medical device focus).
  • Available remote access for software usability testing, which opens up recruiting to long distance and international participants.
