Impressions of our Symposium in Saratoga, California

Following the very successful symposium at our Salzburg manufacturing site we took the big step to host our first symposium “Bringing Ideas to Market 2.0” in the US in January 28-29. In 1 ½ days in the south bay we welcomed over 90 customers together with our partners SCIENION and Invetech.

We were pleased to welcome a unique crowd of participants from start-up companies to industry leaders. Most of the attendees had a background in product development and innovation inspiring a very active discussion on trends and challenges in the commercialization of new diagnostics.

The application focus “Personalized Medicine” was introduced by our keynote speaker Michael Snyder from Stanford University and complemented by talks on companion diagnostics, single molecule detection, multiplexing and the impact of circulating tumor cells on cancer treatment.

The memorable location created a setting to facilitate an open discussion between the system engineers, consumable development and application owners.  

We very much look forward to welcome you all at our next symposium in conjunction with the Analytica 2016.
