Platform Technologies for Stem Cell Research: 26 February 2009, Cambridge

In association with the Laboratory for Regenerative Medicine, University of Cambridge

Join us for the first in a series of meetings aimed at exploring the latest technologies and techniques available to stem cell researchers. The goal is to give research scientists the opportunity to hear from experts who are using key platform technologies relevant to regenerative medicine/stem cell applications and to give commercial suppliers the opportunity to interact directly with users of their equipment.

Sponsors: UKTI

Exhibitors: Chip-Man Technologies, Cambridge Bioscience, Sigma-Aldrich, Helena Biosciences, The Automation Partnership, PAA Laboratories, ThermoFisher Scientific, TissueGnostics, Abcam, StemCell Technologies, Becton Dickinson, Beckman Coulter UK

Cost: Academics – free Commercial delegates – £50


1. Live cell imaging

2. Cell sorting

3. Proteomics

4. Transcriptional profiling and sequencing

Each session will be opened with a presentation by an academic expert in a specialist technical area describing the instrumentation and techniques they use, why they are useful, why they chose that technology, and how they would like the technology to develop. The academic presentation will be followed by presentations by 2-3 commercial suppliers of relevant equipment/instrumentation. There will be an exhibition by suppliers at the breaks.
