33 Jahre erfolgreiche Entwicklung der Wissenschaftslandschaft in Ostdeutschland - unter diesem Motto hatte der Ministerpräsident des Freistaates Sachsen und Vorsitzender der Konferenz der ostdeutschen Regierungschefs - Michael Kretschmer - zu einer Diskussionsrunde eingeladen. Dabei wurde nicht nur das Erreichte diskutiert, sondern auch Herausforderungen für eine weitere erfolgreiche Entwicklung des Wissenschaftsstandortes Ostdeutschland thematisiert.
Automation can significantly speed up the sample preparation of protein digests. At the Center for Life Science Automation, purification of this sample type was automated using EVOTIPs (Evosep, Odense, Denmark) on a Biomek i7 Liquid Handler Platform (Beckman, Indianapolis, USA) in combination with an adapted Positive Pressure Extractor. The system enables the processing of up to 5 sample boxes.
Liquid handling is an essential part of a wide variety of laboratory processes. Currently, there is an increasing demand for applications, e.g. in diagnostics, quality control or materials research. As part of the lecture 'Where is more than NGS - New Applications using Liquid Handling Platform', the Center for Life Science Automation (Rostock) will present current and future questions and applications in the field of liquid handling
ICISC 2023 aims to bring together researchers and scientists from academia, industry, and government laboratories to present new results and identify future research directions in Images, Signals, and Computing.
M. Sc. S.-J. Burgdorf will present our latest developments in the field of automated crystallization monitoring for material research.
The IEEE 17th International Symposium on Applied Computational Intelligence and Informatics (SACI 2023) will be held on May 23-26, 2023 in Timisoara, Romania. Prof. M. F. R. Al-Okby will present recent developments in the area of indoor gas monitoring for life science laboratories.
The I2MTC - International Instrumentation and Measurement Technology Conference - is the flagship conference of the IEEE Instrumentation Measurement Society. The conference is dedicated to emerging topics and advances in measurement methodologies, measurement systems, instrumentation and sensors in all areas of science and technology.
CELISCA is contributing a special topic regarding quality assurance in sample preparation for compound oriented measurement problems:
The automation of life science processes is currently a rapidly growing area. An essential prerequisite for the automation of laboratories in small and medium-sized companies as well as research institutions is the detailed analysis of the requirements and restrictions as well as the creation of suitable automation concepts. If you want to learn more, attend Prof. Dr.-Ing. Kerstin Thurow´s lecture on "Recent advances in automating life sciences" on Wednesday, 19 April 2023, in Freiburg.
