Sysmex America Inc., a Mundelein, Ill.-based international manufacturer of clinical diagnostic systems for medical laboratories has launched its first e-learning program. Its purpose is to ensure that new instrument owners gain a basic knowledge about Sysmex instrumentation before attending classes at the Sysmex Training Center. This online pre-training allows trainers to focus on more advanced topics and condense classroom sessions. E-learning also allows for continuing education and training of new laboratory staff via the Internet to a virtually limitless audience. Information: www.sysmex.com/usa.
