P/N: N020-0536

Price: $4200

*Tuition includes calibration kit and RNase P kit. Maximum 2 people/training.

Who Should Attend?

This basic-level training class is appropriate for lab members who play the critical role of maintaining and overseeing use of their lab’s QuantStudio™ 12K Real-Time PCR Instrument with OpenArray™ block, as well as for anyone else interested in gaining a greater understanding of their instrument. Attendees will benefit from having a primarily hands-on experience in the laboratory, as well as from interacting closely with application scientists.

Course Description:

This 1-day hands-on training provides the fundamental knowledge necessary to keep a lab’s instrument running according to manufacturer’s specifications. Topics include instrument software, instrument calibrations, system verification, and basic instrument maintenance that can be done between visits from a field service engineer. Attendees passing a skills assessment with a score of 80% or higher will be provided with an Instrument Operator Certificate granted by Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Service and Support Training Department.

At the conclusion of this training, participants should be able to:

  • Explain basic concepts of what occurs in a qPCR reaction and how the instrument uses signal from the reaction to generate data
  • Demonstrate key features of the instrument software, including setting up an experimental run and checking calibration and maintenance status
  • Understand the importance of and perform instrument calibration and system verification
  • Perform basic instrument maintenance functions



The Thermo Fisher Scientific Training Center is an approved provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by The American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science (ASCLS) Professional Acknowledgment for Continuing Education (P.A.C.E.®) program.

Participants successfully completing RT-403 will be awarded 6 contact hours.
