RTS Life Science, a UK-based supplier of drug discovery and drug delivery automation solutions for large scale sample management and high throughput testing in laboratories, will be sponsoring the ´Nowgen Practical Biobanking: An Intensive Course´ being held 16-19 February 2009 in Manchester, UK.

The course is designed for both Biobank sponsors and researchers looking to establish and maintain a successful biological sample resource. The emphasis of the course will be on the practical aspects of establishing and running a liquid and tissue Biobank and includes:

• Optional practical laboratory day on DNA extraction and quantification techniques
• Talks from leading liquid and tissue biobanking scientists
• Discussion and networking forums
• Tour of major biobanking facilities in the North West of England, including UK Biobank (UKBB) and AstraZeneca
• Robotic automation workshop at RTS Life Sciences, Manchester

The workshop at RTS on 18th February will offer attendees the opportunity to interact with the RTS Automated Blood Fractionation platform (ABF) and our A2 and A3-SmaRTStore automated sample storage systems. We will also discuss the benefits of using automation for both these processes.
