Urban myths of microplate readers
Exploring misconceptions and understanding the technologies
In this unique new five-part weekly webinar series, running every Thursday throughout October 2020, we’ll introduce you to various aspects of microplate reader technology in an educational and entertaining way!
Starting with some basic concepts, we’ll explain a number of ‘urban myths’ or misconceptions each week - as well as introducing a variety of theories and technologies – ultimately enabling you to fully understand the choices you make when writing protocols, choosing a new plate reader or optimizing an existing assay.
WEEK 5: Read-Copy-Paste-Analyze. Repeat... Sound familiar?
Date: Thursday, October 29, 2020
Time: 10:00 GMT | 11:00 CET
Duration: 45 minutes
In the final webinar of this series we look at how you can reduce the number of manual steps needed to get to your results, and remove operator error, by letting SoftMax Pro 7 Data Acquisition and Analysis Software do the hard work for you.
Most of us have Excel on our PC and it can be a powerful analysis tool, but with SoftMax Pro Software you have the most powerful, most published and fully integrated microplate reader control and microplate data analysis software package available. Furthermore, in today’s world integrity and compliance are key, so we discuss how we can support adherence to worldwide regulatory expectations to enable full FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
