chromatography trainingDo you know your chrompetence level?

Frequent organizational changes, people mutating and new forces joining the laboratory. It's far from straightforward to secure the knowledge that's available in your laboratory let alone get an accurate understanding of your team's competence level and FLP (future learning potential). In order to accommodate these questions, our experts have compiled a series of short competence checks which can be applied to measure the level as well as the personal ambition of each member of your team. Based on the result of such a test, we are able to compile a dedicated training program that truly nourishes the learning ability of each member individually. Whether you're a novice, an experienced user or a chromatography expert? We develop and manage your competences with great care and respect, either in our academy or directly in your lab.

Photo qualityTotal quality management, but only when it's lean

Quality management has a tremendous impact on the efficiency of your lab, but only when it's carried out properly. Improper translation of the requirements imposed by a quality management system gives rise to a lot of frustration and stress, which is mainly initiated by the complex nature and overwhelming administrative pressure associated with these systems. No wonder that for a lot of people, quality management is more of a burden than a blessing. In our vision, quality management needs to be considered in a much broader scope, taking into account lean management, process and method optimization. Only when applied in this way, the true benefits of quality management arise. Read more...
