Gilson, renown experts in liquid handling, are hosting a series of seminars across Europe on "How to Enhance your Manual and Automated Liquid Handling". Liquid handling is at the heart of most laboratory practices. From manual pipetting, transferring simple solutions, through to complex extractions and purifications, they all present unique challenges that can affect the reproducibility, accuracy and productivity of experiments. Join them at one of their many events across the UK, in the Netherlands and Germany during November, learning key aspects of pipetting in the morning with the opportunity for an interactive hands-on session after lunch with Gilson experts.
