No matter in which industry you reside, succeeding in the laboratory today requires effectively applying time, cost, and resources to drive results. Where can you find direct access to information that will personally help you increase productivity, elevate experimental data quality, reduce lab process cycle times, and enable experimentation that otherwise would be impossible? Read on.
From hands-on operations managing real liquid handling robots with fluids of various viscosities and compatibility issues, to learning about the latest advances in proteomics and metabolomics with mass spectrometry in drug discovery—the short courses at LabAutomation2010 will give you a rapid introduction to the topics, issues and techniques related to technology and automation in the laboratory.
LabAutomation2010 will be at the Palm Springs Convention Center, Palm Springs, CA, USA, next month January 23-27: http://www.labautomation.org/LA10/index.cfm. Each of the 18 full-day and two-day courses is led by distinguished faculty with deep expertise in their respective topics. The faculty-to-student ratio is typically 15-to-1, giving you exclusive, first-hand education, training and interaction in a highly personal environment. And, as tradition stands, you can save 20 percent on a Sunday short course by purchasing a Saturday course.
So if you desire an intimate classroom setting and wish to learn about automated systems-architectures, failures and complexity; metrics and monitoring; interfaces; automated ID and vision systems, programming automation and managing data: method building; graphical and automatic programming; scheduling; build vs. buy strategies; data analysis systems; LIMS; data transfer and archival; and current trends in laboratory automation technologies – then your best bet is to head to Palm Springs next month.
