SELECTBIO is pleased to present the 5th Advances in qPCR conference, which will take place at the Fira Barcelona. In line with this evolving field, special focus will also be given to dPCR at this event.

New developments in qPCR technology will be showcased, concentrating on improvements to qPCR design, the acquisition of accurate data, and efficient data analysis. Focus will also be given to the use of dPCR in the clinic, covering applications such as infectious disease diagnostics and cancer detection. Attending this event will provide you with many opportunities to network with peers, helping you to build new relationships and optimise your workflow.

Keynote Speakers:
Mikael Kubista, Professor/Founder, TATAA Biocenter
Carl Wittwer, Professor, University of Utah

Running alongside the Advances in qPCR & dPCR conference will be the ELA exhibition, covering the latest technological advances and associated services from leading solution providers within this field. Registered delegates will also have access to the following co-located conference tracks, ensuring a cost effective trip: Advances in NGS & Big Data, High Content Analysis, Advances in Automation & Robotics and Advances in Cellular Assays & Cell Culture.

Registration is open.

You can present your research on a poster while attending the meeting. Poster Submission Deadline: 02 May 2014
