Include up to 180 pupils per day

Students will work as experts in clinical diagnostic testing laboratories and medical consultants in a fast-paced workshop - specifically designed to explore how one of the most versatile analytical techniques in medical science actually works and is used to test for diseases, drugs, pregnancy and diabetes.  Participants will train to use real life equipment and conduct multiple ELISA (Enzyme Linked ImmunoSorbant Assay) tests in scenarios matched to age and ability.  They will learn the theory and the techniques but must apply both to high to the highest levels if they are to correctly determine the medical diagnoses for the patients being investigated.  Which teams will offer the most reliable and accurate service to their patients?
