MCS Microelectrode Array Workshop 2014: Drug Safety the Human Way: iPS on MEA

We are happy to announce our one-day workshop on iPS cells on microelectrode arrays. This workshop is in collaboration with the Natural and Medical Sciences Institute Reutlingen (NMI) and Axiogenesis (Cologne, Germany). We would like to take this opportunity to officially invite you to attend this event.

We will be performing various experiments in small groups on microelectrode arrays to ensure a thorough and detailed look into our microelectrode array systems in action.
This will also be a good opportunity to exchange insights and thoughts with our application specialists, who can offer tips and tricks for your own particular research questions. Moreover, it is a good chance to find out about the latest news and trends for the future of MEA-technology.
