asked to draw a GC inlet, ToF and Triple Quad. Mostly technical question. One guy asked me to teach him something in 5 min, just anything I know. I think due to the fact that the job would require some teaching skill.

be prepared, but really quite reasonable questions.

A lot of questions about my skills and resume. One person asked me to teach him something about mass-spectrometer and then fix a problem with ion mobility (this was a simple pre-set "user" mistake). It was interesting, but a little difficult since I haven't worked with this brand of mass-spec for some time.

very specific technical questions with examples, like: what are your controls in a qPCR experiment? what is the threshold of your genes? Which parameters will you choose to design Taq Man probes? Tell me about your experience with melting curves. Tell me about your experience with digital PCR.

Tell me about yourself. (Basically explain your resume.)

What is the target market for this product? What kinds of companies?
