    PERKINELMER PRECONFERENCE COURSE perkin

    PerkinElmer is delighted to announce our partnership with PGDIS as a Major Sponsor of the upcoming PGDIS Conference in Geneva, Switzerland, April 15-18, 2019.  As a major sponsor of this Conference, PerkinElmer will be hosting a pre-congress course as detailed below.  Our hope with this unique pre-congress course is to update the field on the most recent advances in Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT) and to broaden your horizons with selected talks from other fields that also deal with single to small numbers of cells including prenatal diagnostics, cancer and forensics to name a few.
