6th International Symposium on MS and Related Techniques in Advanced Analytical Science

Waters Corporation has expanded its slate of speakers for the 6th International Symposium on MS and Related Techniques in Advanced Analytical Science, April 12 – 14 at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate, Manchester, England. The event will feature presentations from many of the world’s leading scientists in the burgeoning fields of bioanalysis, food and environmental testing, metabolic profiling/lipidomics, imaging mass spectrometry, structural biology, and proteomics.

Attendees will hear experts share insights into their use of high-resolution mass spectrometry, UltraPerformance Liquid Chromatography, ion mobility mass spectrometry, and informatics and take home with them greater understanding of these techniques and their uses.

Attendance is limited to the first 250 registrants and for scientists registering by February 18, the symposium fee is only GBP150.
