We are pleased to invite scientists from Pharmas, Biotechs and Academic labs who are applying molecular methods in research and interested in elevating their research with new RNA analysis technologies to join ACD free symposium.


The morning session,  hosted by ACD support scientist will help new or recent users understand the RNAscope® technology and discuss how to produce quality results with simple and easy steps. In this  session, our support scientist will  address questions related to assay workflow , sample preparation  and also provide tips and tricks to perform RNAscope® assay successfully in your lab.  


The afternoon session will feature presentations by scientists who have successfully applied RNA ISH in their research. Presenters will share how their work has been impacted by a new dimension of information—gene expression with spatial resolution. We will also discuss recent advances in RNAscope® technology, which enables detections of a wide range of molecules, including any mRNA, exon junctions, point mutations and tissue-based CRISPR edits, single-copy viral RNA and DNA genome detection..


Network and expand your scientific circle over drinks after the presentations and get a chance to win one of the two OpenTable Gift Certificates (value of $250)*.
