Extensive FISH expertise available for support and training
OGT, a Sysmex Group company, has expanded support activities with CytoCell University – an initiative that promises to partner with scientists to provide innovative and expert training on the basics of fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH).
CytoCell University’s FISH training reaffirms OGT’s mission to support scientists around the globe and help customers advance genetic analysis.
CytoCell University’s first module, set to be part of a series of educational tools aimed at scientists of all levels, is the perfect introduction for those new to FISH, but also as a supplementary tool for more experienced staff. The training is being delivered by OGT’s expert Field Application Scientists, covering everything from the basics of FISH, FISH laboratory requirements and protocols to probe design and signal patterns. In addition, OGT has been running ‘Lunch and Learn’ sessions focusing on troubleshooting FISH experiments.
OGT’s commitment to world-class customer support has accelerated throughout the current pandemic. At a time when laboratories around the globe have been forced to refocus efforts and staff, CytoCell University presents scientists with an opportunity to continue dedicated FISH training and ensure staff feel supported with remote, on-demand access to training.
OGT’s extensive reach ensures that CytoCell University modules can be accessed around the globe - available directly from OGT in North America and as an on-demand service from OGT’s distributors and Sysmex regional headquarters for the rest of the world.
With a return to a post-COVID world, OGT’s mission to help drive scientific progression will continue in-person with customers able to access laboratory health checks - CytoCell Field Application Scientists will visit customer laboratories, review working practices and workflows, run FISH experiments alongside customers, and make personalised suggestions to help improve turnaround-time and reduce cost.
OGT’s commitment to education and customer support is further evidenced by the extensive library of resources and support on the new website, not only for FISH but also for array and next-generation sequencing (NGS) portfolios.
