Technical University of Munich,  Physiology-Weihenstephan,  Germany

Freising, 20th March 2006
Dear colleagues,
dear researchers,

dear company representatives,

On behalf of the Organisation Committee and the Scientific Board it is great pleasure to invite you to the 3rd International qPCR Symposium & Industrial Exhibition & Application Workshop to be held at the Center of Life Science in Freising Weihenstephan, Technische Universität München (Germany). The great international interest in the previous meetings [ qPCR 2004 and qPCR 2005 ] with up to 465 participants in each event from over 40 countries, and 30 international companies in the qPCR Industrial Exhibition led us to the decision to repeat it in spring 2007.

We have set the date for the qPCR 2007 Event 26 – 30th March 2007. The event location is the central lecture hall complex and the foyer at TUM (Technical University of Munich) in Freising Weihenstephan, Germany. The TUM and the Biotech region around Munich is part of the largest Biotech cluster in Europe, located close to the Munich airport in the heart of Bavaria.

Leading academic researchers and industrial contributors in the field will be participate in the symposium, which will be an arena for fruitful discussions between researchers of different backgrounds. The Symposium Talks, various Poster Sessions, Industrial Exhibition and three associated TATAA Application Workshops offer an overview of the present knowledge and future developments in qPCR technology and its wide applications. The referee process is finished. We accepted 190 scientific contributions - 84 TALKs and 106 POSTERS are accepted.

qPCR Application Workshop

Bio-Rad Gene Quantification Workshop, March 29, 2007

The Bio-Rad Gene Quantification Workshop will introduce you to the whole Gene Expression workflow.
Besides different options for Real Time PCR instrumentation and qPCR application strategies, the RNA Quality Control steps and the Microarray instrumentation area will be covered as well.  You will have a chance to manipulate the different instrument platforms, especially by running both conventional and FAST real time PCR applications.

Plexor, the new Technology for MultiPlex qPCR and Genotyping

Promega Workshop, March 29th, 2007

The workshop will provide you with detailed information about the use of Plexor with different qPCR cyclers, the primer design, the reaction setup and the data analysis. You will setup a qPCR run including data analysis (Ct and melt curve) for a multiplex qPCR reaction, followed by a discussion about the setup, results etc. with Promega Scientists.

qPCR Industrial Exhibition

An industrial exhibition will be held during the qPCR Symposium from 26 – 28th March in the foyer of the central lecture hall complex (green frame) and in two side rooms S1 and S2 (blue frame).  According to the booth location we have 31 booth in different prize categories. They are all grouped around the central lecture halls H14 and H15 and fits up to 650 people =>  Link to the Industrial Exhibition

To book a booth and for further details about the industrial exhibition, e.g. exhibition contract, technical management, stand allocation, electronic installations, internet connection (W-LAN), etc. we are pleased to answer your questions.
