While the PLA 3.0 Super User Training focusses mainly on the workflow aspects and basic analysis tasks, the PLA 3.0 Advanced Analysis Workshop for Biological Assays reveals much more in-depth details. We offer this training for a small group. This setting allows us to customize the training agenda to the individual requirements of the participants and to answer your specific questions.

Are there trainings for PLA 2.x?   No, we are not offering End User Trainings for PLA 2.x. If you still use PLA 2.x, we can offer you a corporate training.


"The training was very interactive, the discussions and Ralf’s presentations were very helpful for us to learn the power of PLA3.0 as well as to clarify some misunderstandings about the system and sample suitability assessments. I believe this was very helpful for scientists who don’t have extensive training on statistics to understand better how to use PLA3.0 for their relative potency data processing. Thanks again for a very useful training session."

  "The Advanced Analysis Workshop is the excellent training for anyone that is already familiar with the PLA software and wants to use full potential of this great statistic tool."
