Customer Training

New instrument? We won’t leave you behind.

In our customer training classes, we can show you exactly how to use your new instrument to its full potential. You’ll get hands-on lab experience in our state-of-the-art training facilities and learn about an array of topics specific to your recent instrument purchase, ranging from daily operation to troubleshooting, as well as how to use more advanced features.
