Label-Free Technologies
is a two-and-a-half-day conference focused on the latest advances and applications of label-free technology in life sciences and drug discovery. It brings together the users, the equipment suppliers and the equipment inventors.

Following on from the enormously successful first meeting held in Amsterdam in 2012, we are proud to be bringing this conference to the USA. The second meeting in this series will review the considerable progress in the field, especially over the past two years, and provide unrivalled exposure to the most practical emerging techniques. It will also demonstrate how the advent of such label-free techniques has illuminated and inspired research in the field of intracellular metabolism and cell surface receptors.

In addition to the established brands and well-known instruments in the field, you will have the opportunity to review the many new companies and products that have entered this rapidly expanding field and sample some of the most exciting underpinning research from around the World. This is a chance for label-free users everywhere to glimpse the latest label-free applications and to help shape the future of research in their field.

Conference program

A series of invited plenary lectures from thought-leaders in the field will be complemented by contributed oral and poster presentations and an exciting commercial exhibition.

  • What is the need in label-free sensing?
  • What we have learned?
  • Where are we now?: Newer Optical Methods
  • Where are we now?: Impedance and Electrochemical
  • Mass Spectrometry
  • How do we transition the technology to meet the need for label-free sensing?
  • New technologies
  • New opportunities for applications

“Label-free technologies have made enormous progress in recent years and have generated wealth well beyond the simple sales figures associated with the instruments themselves, by enabling drug development and research in the life sciences."
- Anthony Turner, Founding Chair

We look forward to seeing you at the conference in March 2015.
