On Monday 25th November, 25 students from Edge Hill University visited our laboratory to gain insight into how a commercial laboratory runs, and potential career opportunities within the field.
Our team had a fantastic day working alongside the students, who are completing an ‘Applications in Biotechnology’ module, discussing their personal experiences within the company and providing demonstrations of commercial test methods. The students showed great interest in understanding the different departments within the company and what’s involved in the roles within each.
A representative from Edge Hill University said: “Just want to say thank you to you and the rest of the team for Monday. Really enjoyed the event, it gave me and the students an excellent insight into working in a commercial environment and for the students to see career pathways.”
