HID Roadshow 2019 - Uncover forensic technologies at a User Meeting near you

Mark your calendars for your nearest free, one-day seminar—focused on making your forensic genetics more effective

Our roadshow is travelling across Europe, Africa and Russia to explore and discuss the latest advances in forensic genetics. The agenda has been prepared as a user’s meeting, so attendees will learn about the latest new Applied Biosystems products and at the same time exchange experiences with other users and peers in a relaxed environment.

Thematically, we will cover the entire range of the forensic genetics laboratory, from sample collection, to extraction and quantification, through STR amplification, analysis and interpretation. Sessions are adapted to the particular needs at each roadshow location.

What will you learn?

  • What’s hot in forensic genetics—new and enhanced CE solutions that simplify and streamline data interpretation; NGS solutions for forensic genetics applied to routine
  • How Rapid DNA will help forensic labs, law enforcement and police organisations to solve more crimes
  • Tips and tricks to make your work more effective using the latest versions of data analysis software

What will you experience?

  • Live demonstrations of new CE and Rapid DNA instrumentation
  • Current application examples from forensic scientists
  • Networking with forensic scientists, experts and peers
