First Symposium by SyBioMa

Dear all,

The mass spectrometry facility of the KULeuven “SYBIOMA” plans to organize on a regular basis seminars to present the work that has been realized at the facility.

The first seminar will take place on Monday Feb 18th from 13.30-17u at campus gasthuisberg O&N 2 SEMINARIELOKAAL HP 6 ( ON2 05.205 )

SYBIOMA has purchased very recently a new orbitrap instrument (QExactive). After the symposium there will be the possibility to visit the facility and the new instrument and to discuss the possibilities.

You are all cordially invited:
