SF Bay Area Protein & Biotech Registration

Wyatt's regional user meetings are a great opportunity to meet and interact with other scientists who utilize Wyatt light scattering instruments. Learn how your colleagues approach biophysical characterization, pick up some tips and tricks on method development, and spend some quality time with Wyatt staff.

Date: September 20, 2017
Time: 8:30 AM
Location: Courtyard Marriott San Francisco Airport/Oyster Point Waterfront
1300 Veterans Blvd.
South San Francisco, CA 94080
Check back soon for Speakers

In addition to guest speakers, this meeting will feature 'how-to' sessions presented by Wyatt scientists, moderated application reviews, poster sessions, and round table discussions covering topics such as:

  • Biophysical characterization
  • Formulation and stability
  • Aggregates large and small
  • Biomolecular interactions 
  • High-throughput DLS
  • Electrophoretic mobility
Who should attend:
  • Active users of Wyatt light scattering instruments working in biophysical characterization, protein formulation, biomolecular interactions and related fields
  • Wyatt users in the biopharma or biotech industries, as well as academic customers seeking to engage with regional colleagues around similar analytical challenges

Cost is $100 for industry, $50 for academics. Continential breakfast and lunch are provided. Open LSU credits may be applied.


50% off registration for presenting a poster! Indicate title and authors when registering. Only one registration discount per poster.
