‘A Vision of Future Technology’
Mitsubishi’s Automation headquarters is the setting for the 1 Day – ELRIG –  Robotics & Automation show being held on 19th June.

The show will be focusing on the components and technologies used in laboratory automation applications.

It will be an opportunity to listen and discuss the implementation of automation components with colleagues and suppliers.   A varied selection of full length and snapshot talks will be presented to give scientific and engineering users an understanding of what is available to automate experiments.

This conference is aimed at anyone who works in the life sciences laboratory environment and who would benefit from the implementation of these technologies.  We intend to cover innovative technologies such as software for the automated process (control & data), robotic and process simulation and automation tools (vision and transportation).

Drug Discovery 2013

DD13 Banner v1-3 600x200 HQ


ELRIG are now preparing for the 7th Annual Drug Discovery Conference, which will be held at Manchester Central on 3rd & 4th September 2013.

The 2013 programme will contain presentations from leading scientists across European Drug Discovery, covering innovations and advances in basic and translational aspects of drug discovery: covering topics such as Innovations in Assay Development, through Oncology Drug Discovery, Macromolecules, Safety & DMPK Screening, Sample Management, Stem Cells, and Stratified Medicine.

Each year, this conference provides a fantastic communication and learning opportunity for scientists engaged at the leading edge of drug discovery, whether in Academia, Biotech or Pharma. As with our highly successful meeting in 2012, attendees will hear world class speakers discussing the challenges and opportunities facing drug discovery scientists today. Drug Discovery ’13 will include a scientific poster session, networking sessions, and a large vendor exhibition.

Deadline    29th July 2013

Make sure you let us know it is for the ‘Recombinant Protein Technology’ show

Topic areas:  Proteins OR Cells


The ability to produce proteins (as reagents or biotherapeutics) of sufficient quality and quantity is important for the academic and industrial sectors. The use of eukaryotic cells as hosts for expression and recovery of recombinant cellular, membrane or secreted proteins has developed markedly over the past decade. This conference brings together academic and industrial researchers working on eukaryotic cells as protein expression hosts, and will address our current fundamental understanding about molecular events that determine productivity and quality attributes in the use of specific cell hosts for specific protein product categories. 

In particular, the conference will focus on the biology of existing host cells (in terms of competencies for protein expression), structural features associated with success of expression of specific proteins (including the relationships between specific proteins and host cells) and how both host cell and desired proteins may be engineered to generate new (synthetic) systems for enhanced product expression. The two day conference will consist of presentations by plenary speakers, workshop sessions with invited speakers and speakers selected from offered abstracts and a poster session. Participation will be strictly limited to 220 attendees to enable networking and informal discussion. 

A meeting jointly organised by AstraZeneca, University of Manchester and ELRIG
