It's about You - Ergonomics in the Lab

Annoyed by uncomfortable handling in the lab? Workflows in today’s laboratories are becoming ever more condensed, and the strain of laboratory work is constantly increasing – making the ergonomics of laboratory devices and the entire work environment more and more important. Ergonomic aspects are becoming higher priority: Personal health status or corporate sickness levels of employees due to back bone trouble or hand wrist load – everyone tries to reduce the stress.

Ergonomics goes far beyond the "ergonomically designed chair". At the beginning of the 1970s, Eppendorf began optimizing the ergonomics of its laboratory equipment. In 2003, we launched the PhysioCare Concept®, which was focused on liquid handling devices such as our pipettes. Today, the PhysioCare Concept -implemented in all Eppendorf products- supports the well-being of our users.

Key learning objectives:

  • Discuss why ergonomics is key for everyone
  • Uncover how to improve ergonomics in the lab
  • Identify how to optimize processes in the lab

From Ownership to Usership – Your Digitalization Journey to the Future Lab

Prelogue: In the world of science, Eppendorf is known as  a lab instrument manufacturer - our pipetting solutions are worldwide known, as well as our centriguation solutions and other lab equipment you need for liquid, sample and cell handling, though, the world is changing and new technologies are out there which ease our lives, in the private realm as well as in business. Everyone seek for modern simplicity and customized solutions to meet individual needs. There is an ever-growing need for digital software services and the connected lab offers maximum freedom and peace-of-mind. Question is: Can you get this in one digital tool?

In this webinar we would like to highlight Eppendorfs stake in digitalization and our customized digital offering called VisioNize Lab Suite. Our solution will give you time to focus on what is important, your science! Join our webinar to learn more about how you can customize your digital transformation and get insights into VisioNize Lab Suite in a short live demonstration.

Target groups:

  • Lab managers, scientists who are seeking for innovative digital solutions for the individual lab environment
  • Companies in the life science, seeking for a partner in their ecosystem
  • Purchasing departments of institutes to learn more about digital solutions accessible through a subscription plan

Date & Time: 7th of December 2021, 9 am CEST

ICSI - How to improve your technique

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is the most commonly performed assisted reproductive technology, used in approximately 70% of all IVF cycles. However, the success rate of ICSI varies significantly depending on various biological and technical factors; including oocyte quality and the experience and skills of the operator. Despite the thousands of highly-trained ICSI technicians and embryologists, not all laboratories are able achieve the key performance indicator (KPI) values defined for this technique - and only a few can reach the ideal benchmarks. In this webinar, we explore the ways that ICSI can be optimized, evaluated, and standardized to help laboratories provide the best possible quality of treatment.
