New Advanced Pipetting Academy Makes You a Pipetting Master
For many years Alpha Laboratories and Sartorius have delivered a popular training programme covering correct pipetting techniques, the ergonomic use of pipettes, plus basic service and maintenance of pipettes in everyday laboratory use. User feedback has now led to the development of the Advanced Pipetting Academy™ to address the unique requirements of individual laboratories.
The new Advanced Pipetting Academy™ is an ISO9001 and ISO 13485 accredited training programme that brings together the expertise and experiences of technical specialists, third party consultants and end-users. The extended modules cover Advanced Pipetting Techniques, Pipette Service, Advanced Ergonomics and Cell Culture Techniques. Each module can be taken individually or combined to create a learning experience best suited to your laboratory. The application based training includes participation in hands-on sessions. On-going support is provided through access to an on-line support site with a wide range of educational videos and presentations.
A pipette’s performance is heavily dependent on the skill and expertise of the operator so incorrect handling can compromise the quality of results and cause repetitive strain injuries. With the Advanced Pipetting Academy, users will get practical training on pipetting techniques to help them achieve more accurate and precise results. They will gain a better understanding of the ergonomic risks of pipetting in the laboratory environment and learn how to minimise these risks by choosing appropriate working postures, liquid handling instruments and accessories.
