Application and Instrument Training for Life Sciences

Thermo Fisher Scientific is committed to educating the scientific community through professional training solutions across a wide array of applications areas and experience levels. Whether you need is to gain expertise on your qPCR, sequencing, or flow cytometry platform, or you require applications specific training on molecular biology techniques, cell culture methods, or advanced data analysis, our team of experts has the knowledge and experience to remove barriers in your work. Training is available at your lab, online through LabCoat Live courses, or within one of our state-of-the art training facilities located throughout the globe.

Course topics include:

  • Capillary electrophoresis and next-generation sequencing—Gain competence in operating your Applied Biosystems capillary electrophoresis sequencer or Ion Torrent sequencing system. Learn how to build application-specific NGS libraries and analyze results effectively.
  • Real-Time PCR—Become an expert with your qPCR instrument, acquire the knowledge to properly design experiments and analyze results using real-time PCR and digital PCR.
  • Genome editing—Learn the fundamentals of mammalian cell engineering using high-efficiency gene editing systems like CRISPR-Cas9. Course topics include experimental design, selection, and synthesis of target-specific molecules (guide RNA, TALENs), optimizing transfection, and analysis of editing efficiency.
  • Cell culture—Optimize your techniques for culturing, passaging, and transfecting tissue-derived cells with best practices and troubleshooting tips for maintaining healthy cell lines and obtaining the most accurate and reproducible results in downstream applications.
  • Cell analysis—Become proficient with your Attune flow cytometer, Arcturus laser capture microdissection instrument, or Thermo Scientific high-content screening system—from sample prep to data analysis.
  • Bioinformatics—Develop skills in methods and software analysis tools for understanding biological data. Course topics include Ion AmpliSeq Designer, data management strategies, Ion Torrent plug-ins, and Torrent Variant Caller for primary and secondary analysis interpretation.
  • Microarray analysis—Learn to perform high-resolution, whole genome analyses in large study sizes with complex samples. Course topics range from experimental design of assays and laboratory workflows through to data analysis pipelines.
  • Protein biology—Stay up to date on the latest techniques in protein expression, purification, and analysis. Course topics include maximizing protein expression through best practices in mammalian and insect cell culturing, gene delivery, protein harvest, and selecting the most compatible protein isolation and characterization methods.
  • Stem cell research—Gain confidence with stem cell techniques and optimizing results in stem cell research workflows. Course topics include culturing and characterization of pluripotent stem cells, reprogramming to create induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), and methods for directed differentiation.
  • Molecular biology basics—Gain an understanding of fundamentals required in any molecular biology lab, including nucleic acid extraction and quantitation, end-point PCR, electrophoresis, and real-time PCR.
