More than 35 internationally renown speakers will be participating in
a lively and exciting programme enabling the valuable exchange of
information in the qPCR field. As a special guest we can announce
Prof. Carl Wittwer from the Institute of pathology at the University
of Utah School of Medicine. He is an associate editor of Clinical
Chemistry, and best known for developing techniques in rapid-cycle PCR
and as the inventor of the LightCycler.
Parallel to the Symposium an Industrial Exhibition will take place
along with the congress, where an intensive conversation with numerous
companies is possible (real-time PCR Cyclers, Kit Producers, Nucleic
Acid Purification Systems, Enzyme Producers, Plasticware Suppliers,
etc.). 21 companies agreed to participate at the Industrial
