04.dec - 7.dec Online


Latin-American Symposium on Biotechnology, Biomedical, Biopharmaceutical, and Industrial Applications of Capillary Electrophoresis and Microchip Technology
Pre-recorded lectures offer flexibility by allowing meeting participants to listen to each lecture at their own pace and revisit material while also helping to mitigate issues with internet connectivity. We at LACE-2021 would like to have all lectures pre-recorded in order to keep the timing designed for each speaker, and to accommodate the different time zones of all participants living in different continents. We would also like to keep the lectures at the LACE-2021 Website for one month after the meeting, with the purpose to help other scientists that are unable to participate at the Symposium in December

About the event

LACE symposium series was created in 1995 in a small meeting in Santiago, Chile with the purpose of keeping Latin American scientists abreast of the latest advances in technology for microseparations, specifically capillary electrophoresis and microchip technology.

The symposium is structured in four days with initial postgrade course, followed by plenary lectures and contributed communications, as well as poster sessions, vendor seminars and exposition. Sessions will include proteomics, glycomics, foodomics, metabolomics, genetic analysis, DNA sequencing and separation, miniaturization and microfluidics, bioanalysis, biotechnology, (bio)pharmaceutical analysis, applications, multidimensional separation approaches, hyphenated techniques, mass spectrometry, novel instrumentation, sample treatment, and more.
