The Biotage Method Development Suite is a 5 part training course for clinical labs, and offers a proven, systematic approach to sample preparation method development for chromatography mass spectrometry assays. The objective is to provide the research scientist with the knowledge and tools to develop sample preparation methods based on specimen type and compounds of interest with a minimal number of experiments.
This hotel version includes a hands-on introduction to some options for processing and automation of the method once developed and the training includes processing points that should be considered at the time of method development.
