S_5447_AT_HID_EPC_iSt_40460994_700x233 (002)

Summer will be here soon and ASM Microbe 2017 is just around the corner! The meeting will take place in New Orleans from June 1–5. We will be there to share our Sample to Insight solutions in the field of microbiome research. Join us to be a part of this exciting event and learn more about the latest technologies in homogenization, nucleic acid isolation, automation, NGS library prep and bioinformatics. We will be available at booth 2001 in the exhibition and poster hall.

We invite you to attend our showcase on Saturday, June 3rd from 5:30–6:15 pm

Location: Exhibit Hall D, Industry & Science Showcase Theater A

Presenter: Dr. John Rossen, University Medical Center Groningen

Title: NGS in the clinical microbiology lab – more than sequencing alone.

Abstract: In this presentation, applications of NGS as used at the University Medical Centre in Groningen will be presented. Included in the presentation are topics such as outbreak management, molecular case finding, characterization and surveillance of pathogens, rapid identification of bacteria using the 16S-23S rRNA region, taxonomy, metagenomics approaches on clinical samples, and the determination of the transmission of zoonotic micro-organisms from animals to humans. Finally, our vision on the use of NGS in personalised microbiology in the near future will be given and specific requirements will be highlighted.

Pre-register for the showcase.

Dr. Rossen will also be presenting his latest research during the poster sessions. Check out the details below.

We look forward to meeting you at ASM Microbe in New Orleans!
