This course will feature one day of informal seminar style lectures and one day of laboratory-based practical training on allergen detection systems.
This year we will highlight the importance of public health problems associated with environmental allergens, detection of allergens in food and standardisation and validation of therapeutics for allergy.
Lectures and discussions on:
A Day in the Lab!
Integrated laboratory practical sessions provide detailed instruction, protocols and “hands on” analytical techniques for allergen detection. These include ELISA 2.0 and MARIA™ technology for measuring up to 13 allergens simultaneously. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn in a relaxed, informal environment.
Allergists, respiratory and health care professionals seeking to learn more about indoor allergens and allergic disease; indoor air quality and environmental specialists; companies manufacturing allergen control devices, household cleaning products or environmental products; companies involved with allergy diagnostics and therapeutics, food industry and food risk assessment companies.
