Liquid Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry
10–12 November 2010
Since its inception in the early ’80s, the Montreux Liquid Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry Conference has been the world’s premier conference on LC/MS and all related hyphenated technologies, including important application challenges such as sample pretreatment, separation technologies, and novel software/bioinformatics. This year, LC/MS will take place 10–12 November 2010.
Novel instrumentation and analytical strategies are keys to the success of the meeting. It is anticipated that new developments will be introduced as during previous meetings. An attractive oral and poster session will take place in a relaxed format to allow maximum interaction among participants. Introductory courses will stimulate newcomers to enter the exciting world of LC/MS.
Important trends like miniaturization and automation will be on the program as well as highlights from strategic industrial developments impacting on the LC/MS field (e.g., within the pharmaceutical industry). Novel approaches in drug discovery and development will be discussed such as proteomics, metabolomics, systems biology, target and biomarker discovery, novel bioanalytical methodology, impurity screening, lead selection, and optimization using novel LC/MS platforms. In addition, developments in agriculture, chemical biotech, and environmental areas are covered.
The exhibition is key to the conference and all major companies involved in LC/MS will be present, while ample time is available in the program for discussions and introduction into novel concepts and instruments.
The charm of Montreux will provide an excellent atmosphere for combining intense science and business with ample opportunities for making new friends and meeting old friends!
