Who Should Attend?
This course is designed for any real-time PCR users seeking a better understanding of all aspects of qPCR Experiments. Attendees will benefit from having a combination of theoretical training in a classroom setting and hands-on experience in the laboratory, as well as from interacting closely with fellow attendees and Thermo Fisher Scientific application scientists over a 3-day period.
This class assumes attendees have prior knowledge of basic molecular biology concepts, including theory of PCR design and applications and experience with basic laboratory techniques such as pipetting and working with solutions. This requirement can be fulfilled by attending MB-101: Molecular Biology Basics for PCR Applications, a 2-day class that can be scheduled just prior to RT-203. Please inquire about discounted pricing for combining MB-101 and RT-203.
This interactive course is a 3-day comprehensive real-time PCR course focusing on quantitative and gene expression applications training that covers all aspects of experimental design, execution, and interpretation. The course is designed to teach following: (1) how to properly design various qPCR experiments; (2) how to design assays; (3) how to validate critical experimental parameters; (4) how to properly set up and run reactions; (5) how to obtain and interpret final data; and (6) how to troubleshoot data. Participants will listen to classroom lectures, as well as carry out laboratory exercises geared toward each of these steps. Course specific theoretical topics and exercises include:
Practical labs include:
Tuition includes course materials, laboratory reagents, consumables, breakfast, and lunch. Travel, accommodation, and other incidental expenses relating to the training are the responsibility of the attendee.
