Laboratory workshop for academic researchers
In this 2-day workshop, you will learn about 3D cell culture and model development in microfluidic platforms, directly from our experienced scientists. The workshop involves both theoretical and practical components and you will spend a full day in the lab to seed and analyze your cultures. One expert trainer per 3 participants makes this an intensive learning experience. By attending this workshop, you will learn how to design and carry out Organ-on-a-Chip experiments, and introduce the technology in your lab.
During the training, you will use the equivalent of 2 OrganoPlates®. After the training, you will receive 2 OrganoPlates and protocols to get you started in your own lab. A total value of €1,400.
February 21 - 22, 2019, please register before January 31, 2019
March 21 - 22, 2019, please register before February 25, 2019

About the city of Leiden
The workshop will be held in our laboratories in Leiden, The Netherlands, just 20 minutes by train from international airport Schiphol and 30 minutes from Amsterdam. There are many things to discover, see and experience in Leiden. With so much history, so many museums and theatres, a vibrant inner city, monuments, shops, restaurants, cafés and a university, your stay outside the workshop hours will also be a guaranteed success.
