Building on the success of the previous years. An exhibition of  the industry’s leading solution providers will showcase current technologies and services.

Catalan Experience – European Lab Automation and the Life Science Awards, Barcelona.

17:00-20:00 Tuesday, 13th May 2014

Join us at the Opening Reception for this year’s ELA - European Lab Automation, incorporating the bi-annual Life Science Awards.

The opening reception for this year’s European Lab Automation, exhibition, enables you to engage with this year’s sponsors and exhibitors without the pressures of getting back to the conference sessions, whilst also being an enjoyable way to experience the culinary and cultural highlights of Barcelona and the Catalonia region.

We are pleased to incorporate this year’s Life Science Awards into the event with the awards ceremony beginning at 18:00 in the workshop presentation area of the exhibition hall. Entries can be made at www.LifeScienceAwards.com with a range of categories open to research teams, individuals or companies from 2nd September onwards.

The conference sessions begin on at 08:30 on Wednesday 14th May running through to 18:00 on Thursday 15th May.

Entrance is free of charge to all registered attendees, so don’t miss out on an integral part of this year’s ELA.

Mobile Laboratories Help Track Zika Spread Across Brazil
Researchers from the University of Birmingham are working with health partners in Brazil to combat the spread of Zika virus by deploying a pair of mobile DNA sequencing laboratories on a medical ‘road trip’ through the worst-hit areas of the country.
How “Silent” Genetic Changes Drive Cancer
The researchers found that EXOSC2 expression is enhanced in metastatic tumors because their cells have increased levels of a tRNA called GluUUC.
‘Jumping Gene’ Took Peppered Moths To The Dark Side
Researchers from the University of Liverpool have identified and dated the genetic mutation that gave rise to the black form of the peppered moth, which spread rapidly during Britain’s Industrial Revolution.
