Brigitte Drees, CEO of Pivot Park and Thomas Räbiger, CEO of BMG LABTECH, welcomed more than 30 participants that used this networking opportunity to exchange views and experiences on working with the PHERAstar FS/FSX microplate reader. The first day of the meeting focused on providing users with tips and tricks for measurement optimisation and generation of data with better quality on the gold standard microplate reader. Moreover, a MARS software workshop and the introduction of the latest applications completed the session. A tour of Pivot Park Screening Centre facility perfectly rounded off the day.

The second day consisted of presentations by external speakers and PHERAstar users from different European countries e.g. Ilkka Hemmilä who gave a talk about “Time-resolution in fluorometric analyses” or Steven Charlton from the University of Nottingham and Excellerate Bioscience who provided an overview of the kinetics of drug action. 

Besides the talks, exchanging expert views and intensively networking made this event a great success.
