Picarro Technical Jumpstart

Picarro Technical Jumpstart is a 4-hour training program that connects you to a Picarro Applications Scientist through video conferencing. It is an excellent choice for clients new to our Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS) technology, or for those considering novel methods, using new samples, or who have campaigns starting soon and need to refresh their knowledge.

The Importance of Technical Jumpstart

This service is designed to assist you with the initial start-up of your system, using standards or other routine samples to set up and check the data from the pre-loaded methods, routine maintenance, and other procedures to get the best out of your system long term. It is also a great opportunity to discuss the parameters to optimize the use of your peripheral devices, such as the SSIM, the 16-port manifold, the MCM, or the IM. In addition, you can learn about the possibilities of more advanced applications and get our insight on state-of-the-art techniques for various applications to help guide your experimental methodology. Your host can also look through operational parameters of the instrument to make sure it is functioning properly.

How Technical Jumpstart Works

This program is conducted through TeamViewer video conferencing and will have voice and video connection. In addition, our Applications Scientists will be able to operate your instrument remotely as you watch, so that they can highlight various functionalities and show you how to navigate and operate useful tools. They can also type notes into a chatbox.
