You'll build your foundation in biochemistry, biology, chemistry, computing, mathematics, occupational health and safety and scientific communication.
You'll develop general laboratory skills such as microscopy, aseptic techniques, chemistry techniques and the use of laboratory instruments.
In chemistry you'll become skilled at preparing solutions that meet strict quality control standards. You'll also learn to use specialised equipment and how to work safely with potentially dangerous chemicals.
You'll do specialised study in areas relevant to a research lab, such as molecular biology, tissue culture, genetics, chromatography, electrophoresis and quality assurance.
You'll extract DNA from bacteria and other cells which you'll amplify (using a technique called PCR), separate (using electrophoresis techniques), stain and examine. You'll learn how to use a biohazard cabinet and aseptically grow plant or animal cells in a flask.
