Dear colleagues,
dear researchers,
dear company representatives,

On behalf of the Organisation Committee and the Scientific Board it is great pleasure to invite you to the 3rd International qPCR Symposium & Industrial Exhibition & Application Workshop to be held at the Center of Life Science in Freising Weihenstephan, Technische Universitt München (Germany). The great international interest in the previous meetings ( qPCR 2004 and qPCR 2005 ) with up to 465 participants in each event from over 40 countries, and 30 international companies in the qPCR Industrial Exhibition led us to the decision to repeat it in spring 2007.
We have set the date for the qPCR 2007 Event at 26 30th March 2007. The event location is the central lecture hall complex and the foyer at TUM (Technical University of Munich) in Freising Weihenstephan, Germany. The TUM and the Biotech region around Munich is part of the largest Biotech cluster in Europe, located close to the Munich airport in the heart of Bavaria.


Leading academic researchers and industrial contributors in the field will be participate in the symposium, which will be an arena for fruitful discussions between researchers of different backgrounds. Here you will find a list of the confirmed Symposium Talks (preliminary). The Symposium Talks, various Poster Sessions, Industrial Exhibition and three associated TATAA Application Workshops offer an overview of the present knowledge and future developments in qPCR technology and its wide applications.

Download our updated FLYER with all essential information (1.2 MB)

Download our Agenda with the Session overview and all 45 invited TALKS (0.2 MB)


CALL for scientific contributions: TALK and POSTER presentations

We are still looking for innovative Talk and Poster presentations in ALL sessions mentioned below. Please submit your abstract until 12th February 2007 at our internet basd Registration and Abstract Submission Tool => ConfTool.


=> The focus of the qPCR 2007 Event will be on the both Main Sessions:

Hi Michael,

Hi Michael,

When posting events, you may want to use the 'Meeting Announcements' forum - for example here

Or, even better, use the new Events area of the site

Any problems, please write to eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%73%75%70%70%6f%72%74%40%73%63%69%65%6e%74%69%73%74%73%6f%6c%75%74%69%6f%6e%73%2e%63%6f%6d%22%3e%73%75%70%70%6f%72%74%40%73%63%69%65%6e%74%69%73%74%73%6f%6c%75%74%69%6f%6e%73%2e%63%6f%6d%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b'))
