Published: May 08, 2013
BELLSHILL, SCOTLAND, 8th May 2013: Link Technologies Ltd, an ISO 9001:2008 certified specialist oligonucleotide reagent manufacturer, will be attending the 15th anniversary of TIDES, Oligonucleotide and Peptide® Therapeutics: From Research through Commercialisation, on May 12–15, at the Hynes Convention Centre, Boston. On Tuesday, May 14 at 4.15 pm, Link Technologies’ Technical Manager, Dr Catherine McKeen, will be advising delegates in the most suitable selection of fluorescent labels and quenchers for various PCR applications, as one of a panel of experts in an audience discussion on the topic. The discussion will highlight the commercial consequences determined by the choice of quencher molecules, their linker structure and attachment chemistry, as well as other aspects that are fundamental to minimising re-validation costs and downstream delays, which need to be considered at the start of the process. The audience will be encouraged to ask questions and participate during the session to maximise its effect in helping to overcome the toughest challenges.
Link Technologies will be sharing booth 330 with its American distributor, AIC, at TIDES, which has become established as the key meeting place for companies working within the oligo and peptide industry, from discovery to manufacturing.
