Wednesday, March 28th
> Formulation: which encapsulation technique for which benefits? Basics and application knowledge
Wednesday, March 28th, 10h, Salle 4
The training session presented by BUCHI, Formulation: which encapsulation technique needs to be chosen for best results? introduces several encapsulation protocols as well as the benefits they may provide. The selection criteria will be discussed along with the encapsulation methods designed for several applications.
> The impact of water quality on your analyses.
Wednesday, March 28th, 10h, Salle 3
Purified water is so ubiquitous in the laboratory that scientists almost forget that it is a reagent that must be carefully selected, especially since modern analytical techniques are becoming increasingly sensitive. This training session will shed the light on the potential impact of water contaminants on your analyses, show you how to avoid pitfalls, and help you understand how to reliably obtain high purity water meeting your laboratory’s specific needs.
> Fire awareness training for a safe storage of hazardous materials
Wednesday, March 28th, 13h30, Salle 3
Only those who know the risks when handling hazardous materials are able to avoid them. This is the aim of the asecos academy. With different videos, valuable brochures and practical fire awareness trainings we would like to raise awareness of the risks associated with the handling and storage of hazardous materials. This knowledge leads, in a sustainable way, to greater safety in the workplace.
> Size exclusion chromatography for protein characterization and protein purification
GE HEALTHCARE LIFE SCIENCES
Wednesday, March 28th, 13h30, Salle 4
Size exclusion chromatography is widely used in the process of protein purification. It also makes it possible to characterize these purified molecules.
After a description of the principle of this chromatography technique, examples of application concerning the structural analysis of proteins will be shown. The tips and tricks to fully exploit this purification and analysis technique will also be discussed.
> Optical Spectroscopy at the service of analytical research. Latest development and applications
Wednesday, March 28th, 15h30, Salle 3
> Best practice in the use of calibration gas mixtures
Wednesday, March 28th, 15h30, Salle 4
Calibration gases are essential to laboratory processes and industrial analyses. After the presentation of standard calibration gases (pure gases and mixtures) and custom-made mixtures (composition, concentration), the safe implementation of these gases will be tackled (overview of analyzers, sampling, homogeneity, preventing contamination). Measurement and calibration will then be discussed based on good practices and inter-laboratory tests.
Thursday, March 29th
> qPCR : Set-up and analysis. Key points and practical cases
Thursday, March 29th, 10h, Salle 3
Real-time PCR (qPCR) is the workhorse of most gene expression studies. However, it can be overwhelming to a new user given the requirement for advanced instruments, vast choices for reagents, and the complexity of the technique. This presentation will provide an overview of basic qPCR principles compared to traditional PCR, reagents considerations, and common terms used in assay design and analysis.
> Data Integrity in the Laboratory – 21 CFR part 11
Thursday, March 29th, 10h, Salle 4
Records of data produced by known processes are now subject to strict standards in terms of storage. The training will focus on : what is Data Integrity and its basics, how to guarantee compliance of results provided by an instrument, know the prerequisites of 21 CFR part 11, the advantages of electronic records management.
> LC/MS/MS: A user-friendly tool within everybody’s reach. The basic rules.
Thursday, March 29th, 13h30, Salle 3
Current regulations designs Mass Spectrometry as a standard tool to quantify organic micro pollutants in food and environmental at very less thresholds. However Mass Specs systems are more and more user friendly, you will discover how Laminar Flow based technology enables simplicity and how to scale up a LC Triple Quad among different analytical challenges.
> Importance of Blood collection for exact sample analysis
Thursday, March 29th, 13h30, Salle 4
60 to 70% of diagnoses in France come from a biology analysis. To ensure the reliability and relevance of the analysis, it is important that the quality of the specimen represents in vivo state. Based on the feedbacks and on the scientific literature, the training will provide the vigilance criteria & pre-analytical precautions for the implementation of a biology analysis protocol ensuring the reproducibility & repeatability of the measurements.
> Ergonomics and risk prevention related to postures and repetitive tasks in laboratory
Thursday, March 29th, 15h30, Salle 3
Sartorius’ presentation will remind the fundamentals about ergonomics to laboratory professionals who seek to reduce the risk of injury at work. The session will also leave room for participants to share their experience.
- Introduction to ergonomics
- Professional MSD
- Ergonomics in laboratory
- Postures at work
- Repetitive tasks
- Ergonomics applied to manual pipetting and microbiology working stations
- Warm-up and stretching exercises
> LABORATORY 4.0. The digital continuity in the lab.
SPC – Groupe SPC
Thursday, March 29th, 15h30, Salle 4
The concept of Industry 4.0 raised 5 years ago and refers to the reorganization of production’s means to give unique and individual products to the customers.
It widened with use of new digital technologies and the contribution of the company in a durable economy.
The current training presents, in a first part, how the laboratory, whether it belongs to quality control or R&D, participates in this reorganization of production means by contributing to numerical continuity within the business.
In a second part, it makes a general overview of the new digital technologies and of their potential use within the laboratory.
