Tecan Academy Launched in Europe
News Oct 09, 2013
Tecan has announced the European launch of its Tecan Academy web-based training tool, building on its success in the USA and Canada, where it quickly became established as a valuable learning tool.
This innovative online training tool provides an overview of the capabilities of Tecan’s liquid handling systems and readers, making it easier than ever before for customers to optimize their instrument use.
It provides the ideal bridge between an initial introduction in the laboratory and Tecan’s broad range of in-depth classroom training options, with new content continually being added as the Academy grows.
The expansion of the Tecan Academy into Europe will enable even more customers to reap the benefits currently enjoyed by Tecan’s North American clients.
Natalie Polinske, Manager of the OpenSource Robotic Biorepository and Informatics Technology (ORBIT) Program at the Aurora Research Institute in Milwaukee, commented: “When a new member of staff joined the laboratory, I looked at the training options available. The Tecan Academy was perfect for our needs.”
