New European Committee of Standardization (CEN) 
Technical Specifications for the pre-analytical process in molecular diagnostics

Course fee: 170 Euro (Please use discount code: CTC)

Language: Czech (can be in English)

Course description: 1 day New CEN Technical Specifications for the pre-analytical process in molecular diagnostics

Target audience: Quality managers at medical and diagnostic laboratories, Laboratory personnel at medical and diagnostic laboratories, Pathologists, Biobank personnel, Managers and researchers coordinating or performing biomarker studies and trial.

Entrance qualifications: Basic Molecular biology or similar

Description: CEN (the European Committee for standardization) is during the autumn 2015 releasing new Technical Specifications about the pre-examination process for DNA, RNA and proteins from various sample types including fresh frozen tissue, formalin fixed tissue, blood and serum/plasma. The specifications are based on results from the FP7-funded project SPIDIA. TATAA Biocenter was a partner in SPIDIA and is represented in the work group drafting the new guidelines. These specifications will be of great value for reliable and robust sample handling and preparation in a standardized way to ensure measured data are of high quality and comparable across laboratories. The new guidelines will be particularly relevant for accredited laboratories but also for research and discovery based work, were procedures needs to be standardized and data compared. The course presents the new Technical Specifications and brings them into context for smooth implementation in your laboratory procedures. The course contains:

Course structure


TATAA Biocenter has given courses in real-time qPCR since 2001 and is today the leading hands-on training organization in real-time PCR and molecular diagnostics in Europe. Our course program covers the entire workflow from sample preparation and extraction to data analysis and statistics.

Our highly appreciated courses are suitable for researchers, technicians, post-graduate students or anyone that wants to learn more about real-time PCR and real-time PCR related technologies. Most of our courses have both theoretical and practical parts where the participants get to do experiments themselves under experienced supervision. We have a large number of different course modules that are available at different occasion and you may take a full week course or just a single day module. As being a qPCR course provider since 2001 and have trained thousands of satisfied customers we want to share our knowledge with you too.
