Capillary Electrophoresis Certified Instrument Operator Training, 1 day, customer site Learn the fundamental knowledge necessary to keep your capillary electrophoresis (CE) instruments running according to manufacturer’s specifications. This course is conducted at the participant’s location and provides professional, interactive education that includes classroom training delivered by a certified Field Application Scientist (FAS) and hands-on instruction in the laboratory. Covered topics include instrument hardware and software, calibrations, and basic maintenance recommended between visits from a field service engineer. Best practices relating to instrument consumables, reagents, and basic troubleshooting of Applied Biosystems genetic analyzers are also covered. At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:
• Demonstrate basic features of the instrument and use data collection software to check calibration and maintenance status • Describe the importance of, perform, and interpret instrument calibrations • Perform key instrument maintenance functions
Certification Attendees passing a skills assessment with a score of 80% or higher will earn an Instrument Operator Certificate granted by the Thermo Fisher Scientific Service and Support Training Department.
Additionally, participants successfully completing this training course will be eligible for 6 contact hours through the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science’s (ASCLS) Professional Acknowledgment for Continuing Education (P.A.C.E.®) program.
The Thermo Fisher Scientific Training Center is an approved provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. program.
Tuition includes*: • Trainer travel expenses • Training materials and calibration kits for sequencing and fragment analysis. Required reagents for calibration are provided and include Applied Biosystems polymer, buffers, and HiDi Formamide • Maximum 2 people per training
*The participant is responsible for providing an appropriate training facility, an Applied Biosystems 3500 or 3730 Series genetic analyzer, basic laboratory equipment (e.g., pipettes, plate sealers or film, plates, centrifuge, etc.), and basic CE instrument accessories (array, plate base, retainer and septa, cathode buffer container septa, array port plug, and pump cleaning kit).
