Join us on March 26-29, 2017 for the 33rd International Symposium on Microscale Separations and Bioanalysis (MSB 2017) at the intimate Conference Center Leeuwenhorst in the blooming-tulip area nearby Amsterdam International Airport and the North Sea.

MSB 2017 embodies an interactive forum for the discussion of cutting-edge research on the frontiers of separation science, spanning fundamental theory/method/technology development to high-impact applications relevant to health, medicine, food and the environment.

MSB 2017 centers on science and people by creating a confidential ambience that ensures vigorous exchange between delegates. The attractive conference format features:

  • A program built for over 70% from submitted abstracts;
  • A double-blind peer review process ensuring top science regardless reputation and seniority;
  • Oral presentations with 1/3 of the time reserved for active discussion;
  • Topic sessions introduced and chaired by leading researchers;
  • A one-day track (Bio)Pharma-meets-Microscale-Separation-Science;
  • A young-investigator session with rising stars in microscale separations;
  • Poster sessions with selected 3-minute talks;
  • Science Café lunch seminars by vendors presenting advances in commercial separation technology;
  • Registration including lunches, opening&closing receptions and symposium dinner;
  • A scenic venue in ‘the largest flower garden of Europe’ near coastal dunes;

MSB 2017 will feature stimulating pre-conference short-courses, distinguished plenary speakers and a parallel program of diverse topics with presentations along three main themes in Microscale Separations and Bioanalysis:

Performance Hyphenation Impact
Fundamentals and innovations in (bio)analytical technology
and methodology
Advances in multidimensional
separation and coupled detection techniques
Novel and improved
applications in bioscience and industry
