Our virtual lab provides an efficient and cost effective means to grow confidence and remain competent in Neuroscience industry practices by providing accurate and unlimited exposure to techniques, procedures and equipment.
Our virtual reality lab allows users to:
- Interact with lab equipment
- Change settings on the equipment
- Test run the equipment
- Learn about the functional processes of the equipment
- Learn how to set up the equipment
- Try different equipment manufacturers
- Learn processes and procedures
- Track their progress
Equipment available in our virtual lab includes:
- Vibratome sectioning system
- Micro pipette pullers
- Infrared microscopes
- Universal pipettes
- Precision balances
- High capacity balances
- Intracellular solution
- ACSF solution
Research by PWC shows Virtual Reality platforms can help increase work confidence by up to 40%, accelerate training completion by up to 4x, improve training and on-the-job focus by up to 4x.
Our training modules
Extracellular Solution Preparation
VR preparation of artificial cerebrospinal fluid (aCSF). Focuses are on correct compound volumes and carbonation. Measuring pH and osmolality of solutions.
Intracellular Solution Preparation
VR preparation of intracellular solution for patch clamp electrophysiology. Focus is on correct selection of pipettes and pipetting small volumes. Measuring pH and osmolality of solutions.
Fundamentals of Patch Clamp Electrophysiology
VR whole cell patch clamp electrophysiology module. Focus is on locating a neuron and forming a seal, effects of poor/good seal on a recording, and effects of access resistance on recording quality.
Training modules coming soon:
- Microscope Optimisation
- Morphology of Neurones
- Electrode Localisation
- Neuronal Tissue Culture
- Drug Assay
- Brain Slices
- Extracellular Recording
- Patch Clamp and Neural Circuits
- Electrophysiology and Neurological Disorder
We also offer bespoke training modules too, and can even match your exact lab SOPs if needed.
It’s simple and easy.
Everything you need to benefit from our virtual training lab will be included in your order – from the premium headsets and virtual lab software to headset cases and chargers. It’s as simple as turn the headset on and start training.
There are no hidden costs.
We offer a simple and flexible pricing plan with no hidden extras.
We’re augmenting the practical side of learning
Learning without the consequences of real-life failure means that employees and students can repeat practice without pressure, until they become familiar and confident with the desired equipment and procedures.
This means more time exposed to practical spaces, from science laboratories to engineering floors.
As well as improving their workplace awareness, through equipment usage and risk assessment, our goal is to mitigate training costs and equipment damage whilst promoting maximum learning retention.
We can also provide analytical statistics of individual training performances, showing their progression and improvement trends across any number of exercises. This is shown in the video above.
