Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) has been hailed as one of the most important advances in molecular biology and is an indispensable tool in biomedical research. The objective of this intensive 5-day hands-on training is to impart transferrable skills on planning, setting-up, running and analysing PCR experiments.
“Don#146;st let lack of lab equipment delay your project. Come and do it in our lab and finish your project on time.”
“ Besides high-tech equipment, we will also provide you with technical expertise. If you need help in data analysis and report writing, we will also be there to assist. ”
“Ever wanted to learn how to perform tests such as PCR but couldn#146;st? Vumbua is the place that allows you to operate lab equipment and gain hands-on skills.”
You will be able to gain the latest skills in designing, setting up and running different PCR reactions.
