Product Development Department (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – October 22, 2014
Pros: learning new techniques, and new things each and everyday.
Cons: lot of down time waiting for results.
The things I did at Luminex were: • Recorded and analyzed data • Kept up to date with relevant scientific and technological developments. • Prepared samples (extracted nucleic acid) into aliquots, including labeling and pipetting. • Prepared primer mixes and other reagents. • Kept accurate records for all experiments and activities in a lab notebook.
I learned how to pace myself and learn from my mistakes. The co-workers were very friendly and educating on different techniques and it was a great environment to learn in.
