  • 19 hours
  • Mobile eTicket

FIDA Advanced Courses are designed to teach key capabilities that improve both Fida 1 user experience and data quality. Whether you have been using FIDA for many years or you performed your first few assays, this course can greatly benefit you, as:

  • You will gain the knowledge that will allow you to extract and interpret all the of information that is present in Fida 1 data
  • You will learn about new features of the Fidabio software
  • You will network with the global FIDA community
  •  You will have a chance to address your specific issues with our scientists

Topics covered

  • Assay optimization: labelling strategies, pressure control, etc
  • Ensuring optimal data – from any kind of sample (hands-on session)
  • Know the stability of your protein sample (hands-on session)
  • User cases. The course gives you the chance to discuss your specific case.The program will be sent to the participants 1 week before the course.
