Octet System User Meetings Around the World — Sign Up Now!

Craig Tin, Senior Product Manager, craig_tin@pall.com

This past spring saw record attendance at Pall ForteBio user meetings held across North America, Europe, and Asia. These full-day workshops focused on label-free BLI applications that enable research and development in industry and academia, and brought local Octet user communities together to build professional relationships. A variety of topics were covered during these meetings, including epitope binning, Fc receptor kinetic assays, and analysis of antibody-drug conjugates, all presented by the real experts on the applications — our users! Many of these presentations are available on our website and can be downloaded at www.fortebio.com/literature/

Whether you're an experienced user of Octet systems or just curious about our technology, Pall ForteBio would like to invite you to join us as we kick off a new season of user meeting workshops around the globe this fall. Attending a user meeting is great opportunity to learn what others are doing with BLI technology, to meet Pall ForteBio scientists and experts, and to network with other research professionals. Some current topics being presented this fall are: screening of monoclonal antibodies and small molecules for lead identification, characterization of vaccine candidates, and host-cell protein detection in biotherapeutic production. The agendas continue to be updated, and we are always looking for experienced Octet users interested in sharing their work and in educating other researchers to speak at these events. Please visit our events page for more information and to register. The dates and locations of our next user meetings are:

November 12 — Bethesda, Maryland
November 13 — Geneva, Switzerland
December 9 — Toronto, Canada
