Bio-Rad Laboratories, a life science research and clinical diagnostic products provider has announced that it has joined the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) Corporate Partnership Programme, to help expand EMBL's portfolio of innovative scientific training courses designed for budding young scientists.

EMBL is an intergovernmental organisation, a research institution for the life sciences, with sites across Europe. Its Corporate Partnership Programme is designed to create long-term relationships between EMBL scientists and its corporate partners, like Bio-Rad. Together, EMBL and its partners work to develop training courses and products and services and help to facilitate the transfer of technology from basic research to industry. The organisation's training courses are available for different levels including PhD students and postdoctoral scientists.

"With Bio-Rad's expertise, we look forward to expanding our training portfolio of innovative methodologies for young scientists," said Elisabeth Zielonka, Manager of External Scientific Courses at EMBL.

"Our practical course on liquid biopsy will be enhanced with Bio-Rad's Droplet Digital PCR technology, which offers absolute quantification of target DNA or RNA molecules. The course is designed for research scientists who are interested in utilising liquid biopsy testing for diseases such as cancer," Zielonka added.
