Join us at AACR Annual Meeting 2017

In addition to the traditional National Cherry Blossom Festival, this spring Washington, D.C. will welcome the AACR Annual Meeting 2017 on April 1-5!

We’ll be delighted to meet you at our booth (#1643) where you can learn more about our solutions dedicated to cancer research and biomarker discovery. We’ll feature our complete portfolio of products dedicated to cancer research and biomarker testing.

  • Automated and manual sample preparation
  • NGS kits and quality control
  • Gene expression and miRNA regulation
  • Pathway analysis and epigenetics
  • Solid tumor and blood cancer biomarkers

Meet our experts and discuss sample prep, NGS kits and quality control, gene expression and miRNA regulation, pathway analysis and epigenetics, and solid tumor and blood cancer biomarkers.

We’re also hosting a Spotlight theater presentation and presenting several posters. Check out the following for details.
