How can you share knowledge and build community among a network of scientists working around the world?
Meet TeleScience, our new online platform featuring videos of lab tips and tricks to accelerate teaching and research.
TeleScience is exclusively sponsored by the Life Science business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, which operates as MilliporeSigma in the US and Canada.
The site is an online resource for scientists worldwide, with educational videos created and led by trained MilliporeSigma employees.
“We have long believed that the greatest scientific breakthroughs start with curious minds, but these curious minds need access to the right equipment and information,” said Udit Batra, CEO, MilliporeSigma.
TeleScience features videos presented by MilliporeSigma employees on a range of topics, including:
- Sterile sampling
- Single-use systems
- High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)
- Multi-channel pipetting
- Rebuilding a vacuum pump
Videos offer tips and techniques for using equipment and troubleshooting problems, as well as building networking skills.
“Scientific talent is everywhere, but resources are not,” said Dr. Nina Dudnik, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Seeding Labs. “Some of the best and brightest minds don’t have access to the tools and support they need to make the next scientific breakthroughs a reality.”
You can get involved in TeleScience, too! Do you have a tip, trick, or hack that you think scientists around the world could benefit from seeing? Or is there a particular topic you'd love for a video to cover? Let us know!
