Salimetrics to Present Workshop on the Integration of Salivary Analytes into Scientific Studies at the Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) Preconference
Date:1/29/2013

(PRWEB) January 29, 2013

Researchers attending the 2013 SRCD biennial meeting or in the Seattle, Washington area who are interested in learning about the integration of salivary analytes into their scientific studies are invited to attend a “Spit Camp Workshop” seminar as part of the Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) Preconference. The first workshop will be from 8am-12pm, and the second workshop will be from 1pm-5pm at Sheraton Seattle Hotel, on April 17th, 2012. The attendance fee is $250 per attendee. Scholarship opportunities are also available. Please contract Salimetrics for more details on how to apply.

Traveling Spit Camp Workshops provide lecture-based training as well as a hands-on demonstration of saliva collection methods and devices. These camps guide attendees to participate in coordinated and informative discussions on saliva collection techniques designed to insure the best possible results from their salivary assays. Researchers may also request individual time to discuss questions related to their projects with Dr. Douglas Granger or a Salimetrics team leader.

Topics covered in the workshop will include: oral fluids as biological specimens; an overview of saliva collection methods and devices; using proper collection, handling, storage, and shipping methods; awakening response and diurnal variation in analytes; and basics of enzyme immunoassay techniques used for assaying salivary analytes.

“Salimetrics Spit Camps have become very popular among researchers, because this type of instruction is not available anywhere else,” said Jennifer Jewell, Spit Camp Director. “Salivary measures can be a very powerful research tool, but they need to be conducted in a consistent and accurate manner to achieve credible results.”

To schedule a workshop at your university, please contact Jennifer Jewell at 800-790-2258 or send an email to jjewell(at)salimetrics.com. To participate in an existing workshop, register online at: http://www.salimetrics.com/spit-camp.

Douglas A. Granger, PhD is founder and Chief scientific and strategy advisor of Salimetrics LLC (State College, PA) and this relationship is managed by the policies of the conflict of interest committee at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
