Pipette Quality Management Certification: Training seminars to improve internal processes for managing pipettes and standardizing operator pipetting techniques


Improve data quality and boost productivity with this two-day, hands-on seminar that covers all aspects of pipette management. The program is held at Artel’s headquarters in Westbrook, Maine, and is designed for laboratory personnel who use pipettes daily and need to manage regulatory compliance, improve internal processes for pipette management, or establish an internal pipette quality assurance program. With classroom and in-lab sessions, a written and practical exam, training manual, and many opportunities for discussion with our experienced instructors, participants will leave the seminar well-prepared to set up a robust QA/QC program for pipettes, technologists, and liquid handling processes. Participants will also get a chance to compete in a pipette challenge, and will be awarded a Gold, Silver, or Bronze pipetting medal depending on performance (most participants receive a Gold medal after training!). Topics include: • Best Practices in Pipetting Technique • Pipetting Viscous Solutions • Pipette Ergonomics • Regulations and Compliance • Pipette Repair and Maintenance • Diagnosing Pipette Failure • Calibration Methodologies • Setting up a Quality Assurance Program • Single and Multichannel Pipetting Technique Certification Intended for: • Laboratory managers and supervisors • QA and QC supervisors • Metrology professionals and calibration specialists • Laboratory technologists and technicians • Research scientists and analysts and assistants • Training managers and analysts • Forensic technologists
