Bio Lab Training

Gain essential skills for doing your own microbiological experiments

18 May 2016

The laboratory is obviously not your standard workplace, and comes with its own set of rules and safety measures. This training is a fun and informative way of familiarising with this special environment. For example: how do you create a suitable habitat for your micro-organisms? What is the best pouring technique? What does the mushroom kingdom look like? You can at least be sure of one thing: after this day you will be fully prepared for your future work at the Bio Clean Lab. You won't have to do the training if you can provide proof of experience with laboratory work.
