Visiting Scientists

Secondments play a crucial role in training O2k users in experimental handling and data analysis, thus contributing significantly to the overall quality of scientific research. During their time at Oroboros, they have the opportunity to evaluate the latest developments and offer valuable feedback for further product development.

Furthermore, Oroboros recognizes the importance of offering a diverse range of protocols for various applications. During secondments, our protocols undergo testing and refinement specifically for high-resolution respirometry measurements. These efforts ensure the quality of our protocols, which serve as a cornerstone of our competitive advantage when promoting the Oroboros O2k. Ultimately, secondments strengthen the company’s unique selling point (USP) by strengthening our commitment to providing tested protocols and staying at the forefront of scientific instrumentation.

Partners in the Oroboros Ecosystem
