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
Keynote talk to be delivered by Dr Hakim Djaballah, Director, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center 'Illuminating Cellular Pathways through Combining High Content Assays with the BDA Method: Too Much Hay and Very Few Needles in Random RNAi Screening Stacks' at the DDA: High-content Screening & Cell Based Assays conference track at ELA.
