We understand that staying up-to-date on the latest technologies boosting efficiency and effectiveness in the lab can be challenging. That’s exactly why we created ELA.
Our latest blog entry - http://bit.ly/15HpwvN - highlights five key reasons not to miss this year’s event, all based on feedback we’ve received from past attendees.
This week’s ELA blog - http://bit.ly/15HpwvN -discusses the impact of process optimisation on cell based assays, with particular reference to High Content Analysis (HCA). To give us the inside scoop, we chatted with Dr Anthony Davies, Director of the High Content Research Facility at the Irish National Center for High Content Screening and Analysis (INCHSA) at Trinity College, Dublin, about the impact automation has had on the workflow at INCHSA. Dr Davies will also be sharing his expertise at E
Dr Stephan Schürer from the University of Miami speaks about the goals of the BioAssay Ontology Project to enable standardized description, integration and meta-analysis of assay and screening results - http://bit.ly/15HpwvN
Dr Schürer will be discussing this topic in more detail at ELA 2013 as part of the Drug Discovery Automation track - http://bit.ly/16jbuPq
This week’s blog focusses on the ethical issues surrounding biobanking, based on a recent interview we conducted with Zubin Master. Dr Master, Assistant Professor at the Alden March Bioethics Institute of Albany Medical College, will be discussing this topic in detail at ELA 2013 as part of his presentation, “Biobanks: Consent, Consensus & Public Trust.”
In this week's blog entry - http://bit.ly/15HpwvN - Dr Quail gives us some insight into the current advances being made in NGS, as well as some of the challenges still facing the optimisation of NGS pipelines.
Dr Quail will be speaking at ELA 2013 about the new NGS applications being developed at the Sanger Institute, as well as some of improvements his team are making to sequencing protocols.
This week we caught up with Joe Liscouski, Executive Director at the Institute for Laboratory Automation (ILA) in MA, USA, to find out more about how the use of liquid handling has evolved over the last decade and to gain some insight into what we can expect next.
