Specialist training courses can be conducted in-house and/or customised to your requirements.
PAM Fluorometer Training - We offer one of the most comprehensive suites of fluorometer training courses in the Southern Hemisphere. The Aquatic Processes Group has over 10 years of experience in applied use of PAM fluorometers and over 40 internationally published research articles based on this technology.Our postgraduate students and researchers apply most of these fluorometers to advanced research applications ranging from photokinetics of Antarctic sea-ice algae to understanding the photosynthetic weakness of corals when exposed to bleaching conditions.
PAM Fluorometer short courses are run annually at UTS and offsite on demand (minimum 6 participants).
Who will benefit?
We offer practical hands-on training workshops in all aspects of use and understanding of PAM fluorometers.
Course director Professor Peter Ralph has run a number of PAM training courses throughout Australia and internationally including:
- Griffith University ( December 2011)
- South Australian Research Development Institute (18-19th August 2009)
- Australian Institute of Marine Science (7-8th August 2006);
- UTS (13th - 14th September 2010; 10-11th May 2006, 6th September 2001);
- Monash University (27th August 2005);
- Southern Cross University (13th April 2004);
- Intoductory Workshop - teaches the fundamentals of fluorescence and PAM and is recommended for those with no prior background in this area.
- Specialist Workshop - for smaller groups with specific issues and requirements. This workshop allows the development of further knowledge with specialist instruments and assumes attendees have basic understanding of PAM principles (equivalent to the introductory workshop).The content of this workshop is tailored to the users requirements and could include small research project under supervision.
Specialist training for all PAM instruments is available as required, including:
- Imaging-PAM (Maxi)
