Seminar on digitalisation of the laboratory - benefits and pitfalls

NMKL arranges a course on digitalisation of the laboratory in Sigtuna, Sweden, on 29 August 2018. The language is English.

Digitalisation provides opportunities for increased quality assurance and smoother data management. However, the process of digitalisation is complicated and systems that do not match expectations are not uncommon. At the seminar, some marketable systems are presented by company representatives. As development progresses rapidly, visions on near-future systems will also be presented.

In the afternoon, representatives from different laboratories will tell about their experiences with digitalising their own lab - what went well and what could have been better? We will also get some tips on what to consider and how to get started. Which are the lowest hanging fruits?

This seminar addresses you who work with improvement of the laboratory, both from a quality assurance and an efficiency perspective.

To share experiences from NRL - How to fulfill the requirements and perform the tasks in an effective way? As the number of laboratories has decreased, and the scopes of the NRL are about to be widened, cooperation will be increasingly important.

SEMINAR ON MOLECULAR METHODS

It is becoming more and more common to use molecular methods (DNA methods) for the detection and characterisation of various agents, such as PCR, pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and whole-genome sequencing. What do these methods entail? What is detected by PCR and what is the reason for the focus on whole-genome sequencing? Are there any challenges with the application of this type of methodology? How are we going to use this methodology and technology in the future? The seminar will deal with the use of molecular methods from a practical point of view, focusing on foodborne bacteria in the context of both food control and research. The aim of the seminar is to discuss the background of the methodology (technology), practical uses and challenges, and future applications.

Date: 25 August 2016

Place: Stratos Culture and Event, Youngstorget 2a, Oslo
