Reducing variability/increasing reproducibility is essential in biotechnology, whether one’s job is producing a biopharmaceutical product, performing research, testing samples, or any other function. At Madison Area Technical College, course in basic laboratory skills is taught to individuals who already possess at least a BS degree in a biological science; many of the participants have advanced degrees and/or industry experience. In working with these students, exploration of how variability stealthily arises in the most basic – and often thought to be simple – procedures. In this webinar, student data that provides insights into how science professionals can recognize, understand, and control variability. As students focus on relatively simple – and essential -- tasks, they develop insights into the complexities of quality and metrology.
