AACR Annual Meeting 2017

Writing to you live, from AACR 2017!

I’m here with many of my Roche colleagues, and we’re excited to help you advance the front lines of cancer research.

Every day, we are hosting events to inform you, energize you, and provide you with the tools and
information that you came here for. We recognize that AACR is bursting with exciting science and things to do, but we want to ensure that you don’t miss our events that are relevant to your research.

Here is what we have in store for tomorrow:

Enter to Win $5000 for Cancer Research!
Fill out the ticket in your pre-conference mailer or in the Roche event booklet (available in Booth 1607).

Do you need to isolate precise regions of tissue from slide-mounted samples? Pierre Del Moral and Chad Ritter will explain how the AVENIO Millisect Instrument can cleanly separate your areas of interest from surrounding material.

Meeting Today’s Cancer Research Challenges with Target Enrichment, from 2:40 to 3:00 in Booth 1607

Do you wish you had a fully-automated, walk-away instrument that could provide you with high-quality RNA or DNA from a wide range of sample types?
Join us as Ana Hasegawa and Jon Cash share how MagNA Pure 24 instrument can provide you with up to 24 samples of high-quality nucleic acids in just over an hour.
Meet the Next Generation of Automated Nucleic Acid Extraction, from 3:10 to 3:30 in Booth 1607

Stop by and recharge with a cappuccino or espresso!
While you relax with your coffee, spend time with our scientific team as they guide you through posters covering a broad range of applications in NGS.

After the exhibit hall closes, we’re headed out to explore! We’ve heard that Washington DC is one of the most beautiful cities in the world at night, and can’t wait to find out for ourselves.

See you tomorrow!
