ELRIG (European Laboratory Robotics Interest Group) is a Not For Profit special interest group focused on the use of automation, robotics and instrumentation in the laboratory and also on the wider applications of laboratory automation. The Pharmaceutical Flow Cytometry & Imaging show, took Cambridge Research Biochemicals (CRB) to AstraZeneca’s superb Conference facilities at Alderley Park, Cheshire, where over 300 people had pre-registered to attend from Europe and the UK.
33 exhibitors filled the hall and the whole show had a real buzz. CRB attracted delegates from both industry and academia interested in Custom Peptide and Antibody labelling. CRB specialises in the synthesis of fluorescently-labelled peptides and antibodies. With licences from leading dye manufacturers such as Life Technologies (Invitrogen-Molecular Probes), GE Healthcare (Amersham Biosciences), Biosearch Technologies, Licor Biosciences and Atto-Tec. CRB has the largest selection of dyes available for peptide labelling of any company in the world, thus offering the best dye for specific applications.
A really excellent Speaker Programme was put together by the Scientific Committee, who did an outstanding job of producing the right mix of innovative talks, science and new technologies. Excitement and expectation was raised when J. Paul Robinson of the Purdue University, USA secured a place on the Speaker programme. Presenting to a full auditorium he talked about ‘Reducing High Throughput & High Content Flow Cytometry data to a useful and meaningful solution in a fast, interactive way’, which was very well received.
ELRIG events come highly recommended. CRB are proud to be attending the next Drug Discovery meeting in September 2013.
