Dark Secrets from a Field Service Technician
Join Keystone Labs Inc. for their free monthly webinar on Friday, 22 August 2014 at 1:30pm MDT.
Speaker: Pat Steffes
Lab instrumentation: you can't live without it, and some days you can't seem to live with it. What are the tough questions that you should ask when buying or leasing equipment that the manufacture doesn't want you to ask? Are service agreements a fantastic sham promoted by the manufacturers? What things should you be doing with the instruments that you have? Can you do your own instrumentation validation?
This talk will cover a range of ideas related to getting the most out of your instrumentation. Stick around for the question and answer session to find the solution to that nagging problem you have!
