Beckman Coulter to present at the European Society for Clinical Cell analysis (ESCCA) 2017

22 Sep 2017

Beckman Coulter will give a keynote industry presentation on the diagnosis of haematolymphoid malignancies at this year’s European Society for Clinical Cell analysis (ESCCA), which takes place in the Porto Palace Conference Centre & Hotel, Thessaloniki, Greece from September 24- 27, 2017.

The role of flow cytometry in 24/7 immune monitoring of trauma patients, analysis of rare abnormal leukocytes and assessment of immune deficiencies will be demonstrated and discussed in a range of educational programs organized by the company. 

Beckman Coulter is one of the premier sponsors of the 2017 congress and will be exhibiting at ESCCA on booth #PR1. ESCCA was founded to carry forward the work of the European Working Group on Clinical Cell Analysis (EWGCCA). This was a joint initiative by 16 European centres to foster and develop flow cytometric applications for clinical purposes.
