DAICENTER (DBT-AIST International CENter for Translational and Environmental Research) approached Shimadzu Analytical (India) Pvt. Ltd. about conducting a joint residential one-week workshop, offering full descriptions and hands-on-training courses on pioneering and advanced analytical technologies. The national Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan and DAILAB (DBT-AIST International Laboratory for Advanced Biomedicine) at the Biomedical Research Institute (BMRI), Tsukuba Campus of National Institute of AIST, Japan, established the first International laboratory in October 2013 under a comprehensive MOU between AIST and the Department of Biotechnology (DBT) of The Ministry of Science and Technology, India. DAICENTER is committed to providing research training and networking opportunities to young scientists from India under the scope of this MOU.

The Workshop was designed for research students in Ph.D. or Post-Doctoral Biological Sciences programs working in different Institutes/Universities in India. The aim was to introduce the basic concepts of using Analytical Instruments.

Arrival, Reception & Introduction to analytical instruments, Molecular Spectroscopy, UV, FTIR
Day2 Atomic Spectroscopy, Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy, ICP and ICP-MS
Day3 Range of Chromatography techniques and Gas Chromatography

The workshop was jointly supported by DAICENTER and SHIMADZU. The feedback from all the participants was very good. Photos from the day as well as a group photo are shown below. Overall, the workshop was very useful, providing good insight to the participants about the use of analytical instruments for research in their respective field. More such workshops will be organized in the future, giving Shimadzu more brand awareness and reaching new prospects in the Institutes that are participating.
