Title: Evolving Science Demands Evolving Automation
Date: Monday, February 9, 2015
Time: 12:30 p.m. - 1:45 p.m.
Room: 150

Learn how your Thermo Scientific™ Momentum™ controlled system can metamorphose to meet your needs as your science evolves. The speakers will provide a perspective on how their Momentum controlled solutions evolved to keep in step with their new and changing workflows and hopefully generate some ideas on how automation can help in your laboratory workflows.

Guest speakers:

  • Tet Matsuguchi, Specialist, University of California, San Francisco
  • Alex May, B.S.E, M.B., Scientist, Automation and Engineering, Department of Screening and Protein
  • Sciences, Merck Rick Belval, B.Sc., M.H.S., Senior Scientist, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals

Join us to learn about:

  • How flexible automation can enable your applications
  • Considerations for instrument and mover choice
  • Insights into Partner and end-user experience with Thermo Scientific™ Automation tools and software
  • How Momentum provides an open solution to a range of multivendor automation needs

Complimentary buffet lunch provided!

Title: Next Generation of Multimode Microplate Reading: Smarter, Faster Analyses to Propel Research
Date: Monday, February 9, 2015
Time: 2:00 p.m. – 2:45 p.m.
Room: 144A

A must attend for lab managers: New technologies in mutimode microplate readers are allowing researchers — even newbies — to quickly run assays without the risk of common experimental errors that could throw research off track. In this workshop, learn about the latest "smart" features and strategies for drawing intelligent data from your samples and cutting out the time and money you're accustomed to spending on test runs and mistakes.

Speaker: Jorma Lampinen, Ph.D., Senior Applications Scientist, Thermo Fisher Scientific

Refreshments provided!


Title: Quantitative Image Analysis for Complex Cell Models Using High Content Analysis Software
Date: Tuesday, February 10, 2015
Time: 2:00 p.m. – 2:45 p.m.
Room: 144B

A quantitative imaging and analysis approach for complex cell models, such as tissues, spheroids, and multi-cell cultures is an emerging trend in Cell Biology. With application focused platforms, broad based image processing tools lack in both flexibility and usability. We will describe examples and demonstrate applications in how Thermo Scientific ™ HCS Studio™ Image and Data Management Software is a straightforward, yet powerful tool for image analysis, providing quantitation and scale facilitating Cell Biology research.

Speaker: Scott Keefer, Manager, Product Marketing, Thermo Fisher Scientific Cellular Imaging and Analysis
