5th Tecan Symposium to visit Boston in the fall

The annual Tecan Symposium will be held in the US for the first time this year, from the 23rd to the 25th of October, at the beautiful Taj Hotel in the historical and picturesque surroundings of Boston, Massachusetts. The topic of this year’s symposium is ‘Mass spectrometry – the expanding role in life sciences and diagnostics’ and, as in previous years, the main scientific program will be complemented by a series of social events to encourage networking between key opinion leaders in mass spectrometry (MS).

MS is being increasingly used throughout the life sciences sector, from fundamental research to medical diagnostics, and the 2012 Tecan Symposium will cover various aspects of MS across four main themes: the use of MS in diagnostics and applied markets; the role of MS in basic research; the collection, preparation and storage of samples for MS; and emerging trends and technologies in MS. The varied program will include prominent speakers from academia and industry – including The Hershey Company and Quest Diagnostics – and will provide practical insights into current applications of MS, as well as discussion of potential future uses. Each session will be followed by opportunities for open discussion and networking, providing unparalleled opportunities to further advance this current hot topic while enjoying Tecan’s hospitality.
