Scientific Program

Scientists from various fields of research will come together with common interest to the development and application of cytometric technology in medicine, biology, bioprocessing, etc., and to accelerate the advances in cytometric research for the benefit of patients and clinical treatment. Other main topics will focus on new single cell research in plant biology as well as on microbial community operation and reliable pathogen detection. New developments in instrumentations and techniques will be another important part of scientific sessions and discussions. This meeting will cover the state of the art and actual highlights in the field of analytical and quantitative cytology. A list of key note speakers can be found following the link on the right side bar, where you also will find a link to the preliminary and final program of the meeting.

The basic features of these conferences have always been the personal exchange of scientific results and ideas across various disciplines. An attractive platform will be provided for scientists and company delegates to meet and get acquainted with novel industrial developments.

The conference facilities are kindly provided by the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research. One of the Key-Note-Speakers was comfortingly invited by the Graduate School of the UFZ ‘HIGRADE’ . We are also happy that both Beckman-Coulter and the Translational Centre for Regenerative Medicine in Leipzig (TRM) will host two further Key-Note-Speakers of our advanced sessions.
