Northern EU Mass Cyto User Group Meeting

October 1–2, 2018 | Cambridge, United Kingdom

Join us for a regional Mass Cytometry User Group Meeting in Cambridge, UK!

Due to our growing community of European mass cytometry customers, this year we have expanded our UK user group meeting to include our colleagues in the Benelux and Nordic regions. We are delighted to invite you to join us on October 1–2 in Cambridge, UK, where you can share stories, experiences and best practices, as well as network and collaborate with your fellow mass cytometry and Imaging Mass Cytometry™ (IMC™) users.

Our first day will focus on suspension mass cytometry and the growing number of relevant applications using Helios™. A reception with drinks and appetizers will follow.

Our second day, a half-day focused on Imaging Mass Cytometry, will introduce you to the discoveries being made in health and disease with the Hyperion™ Imaging System.

We look forward to seeing you there!
