Webinar Date/Time: Thu, Jan 19, 2023 11:00 AM EST

What does it really take to be an analyst? Analysts require a diverse set of practical skills to be efficient in the lab, including basic lab skills such as weighing and pipetting, competency in correctly setting up instrumentation, understanding of the fundamental scientific principles of chromatography, as well as an organized and “right first-time“ mindset. All of this combined ensures samples are run efficiently and with minimum errors and costly repeat analyses.

Whether you are graduating this year, are new to working in an analytical laboratory, or train analysts in the lab — this webcast is for you. We will discuss the skills that are needed and why it is so important to ensure that everyone has proper training in these skills. The presentation will cover options we have for training staff — mentor led, face-to-face, or online — and how to successfully combine these to minimize training time and get maximum results.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Role of an analytical chemist
  • Wet chemistry and instrumentation techniques used in an analytical laboratory
  • What you really need to know to succeed in analytical chemistry
  • How to successfully train to be an analytical chemist
  • The advantages and disadvantages of mentor-led, face-to-face, and online learning for training analyst
