On November 14th there will be a post event lab tour, free for Lab-on-a-Chip Asia conference attendees. This will include visits to Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology, Nanyang Technological University, and National University of Singapore.
Dr Holger Becker, Chief Scientific Officer of microfluidic ChipShop GmbH, discusses the great potential of microfluidics in our latest blog entry – http://bit.ly/15HpwvN.
Dr Becker will also be running a training course on ‘Microfluidics from the Concept to a Product: Technologies, Applications and Commercialisation Strategies’ at ELA on June 5th http://bit.ly/13ovJPE
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.
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 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 the run up to European Lab Automation 2013, we’ll be sharing some interesting news and insights around the event on our new blog - http://tinyurl.com/aafeu9f .
