“I am studying Biology and Medical Laboratory research at the HAN, and I have fulfilled my first internship at the Assay Development group of the Pivot Park Screening Centre.
During these 20 weeks, I gained experience on new aspects of biomedical laboratory research, such as antibiotic-free cell culturing and mycoplasma tests, the optimization of luminescence assays and manual/automated dispensing on 348-well and 1536-well format. I have been supervised very well, and felt welcome at the Screening Centre team. This internship was a good experience for both my personal and professional development.”
“For my education, biotechnology analyst, I had to do an internship, which I did at Pivot Park Screening Centre (PPSC). There I joined the operators team, for a period of 20 weeks.
I had a lot of fun and I learned quite a few new things. The employees were always willing to help me whenever I had a question. They also appreciated it when you introduced new ideas or solutions. In the end, I experienced an amazing first internship experience thanks to the PPSC and its employees.”
I was in my 3rd year of my bachelor life science when I did my internship at Pivot Park. I worked on the department assay development, where I developed cell based GPCR/RTK assays for high throughput screening. The internship lasted about 5 months and in that time I’ve learned a lot.
It was my first internship and I got a supervisor who gave me explanations, time and space to work with him but eventually on my own. He helped me in the lab but also with my report.
The group assay development works together with the robot operators in a fine co-operation, where questions can be asked all the time. The departments are always prepared to help you and make you look back on a fun and educational time.
