WELCOME TO THE NETHERLANDS FROM THE ORGANZING COMMITTEE

MSB 2017 is the premier international conference on Microscale Separations and Bioanalysis that spans new advances in technology/method development (miniaturized sample pretreatment, multidimensional separations, nano/micro-LC column developments, CE/microfluidics, and interfacing approaches/MS) with cutting-edge applications relevant to human health and the environment.
The conference will be held at the intimate Conference Center Leeuwenhorst in the blooming-tulip area nearby Amsterdam International Airport and the North Sea.
MSB 2017 will be limited to 300 delegates from across academia, government and industry, and will offer many activities to stimulate discussions and networking between delegates and sponsors within an intimate setting. Overall, we have several engaging opportunities for sponsorship at the conference that we hope you will find beneficial.
Sponsorship recognition will be included in all event marketing, including web, social media, and on-site marketing to a large database of researchers involved in separation science and mass spectrometry. MSB 2017 represents an excellent return on investment through association of our delegates with your organization!
We hope you will join us in Noordwijkerhout, The Netherlands in 2017 and look forward to a successful conference.
