9th UK Mesenchymal Stem Cell Meeting

Don Whitley Scientific recently attended a one day meeting that highlighted the most exciting developments in the biology and clinical application of mesenchymal stem cells.

Various products featured on the Don Whitley Scientific stand at the exhibition. The first of these was the H35 Whitley Hypoxystation. This workstation is designed to create and control specific, sustainable and physiologically relevant environments. These conditions allow the manipulation of cells in situ whilst maintaining the desired environment. The H35 has a rapid internal airlock system as well as a touch screen interface, this makes controlling and monitoring the workstation conditions simple and straightforward.

Also at the Don Whitley Scientific stand was the TC-3 Bioreactor (by Ebers), a mechanical stimulation device in which a range of tissues and samples can be tested.  Another product that featured on the stand was the Hidex Sense (by LabLogic), a compact, microplate reader that combines a number of measurements in one unit. The modest size of the reader means it easily fits into a Whitley Hypoxystation. Samples can be transferred to the device without any environmental changes being applied to the sample.

The event was held at the Manchester Conference Centre in association with the University of Manchester. It was a well attended event with some fantastic posters on display and also some great oral presentations. It offered a fantastic opportunity for Don Whitley Scientific to engage with scientists working with mesenchymal stem cells.

Representatives from Don Whitley Scientific recently exhibited at the WMA (Welsh Microbiological Association) Winter Meeting. The WMA was formed in 1977 and aims to advance the study of microbiology in Wales by facilitating education and communication.

This year’s programme had speakers from various areas of microbiology however the WMA pointed out that there were “fantastic presentations from experts in the field of Cystic Fibrosis from within Wales and further afield”. There were prizes given for the posters on display, the case presentations and also for the young investigator session. The breaks for drinks and meals gave delegates a fantastic chance to network with each other and also the exhibitors, such as Don Whitley Scientific.

On the Don Whitley stand at this years WMA Winter Meeting was the ProtoCOL 3 with software that is able to quickly and efficiently assess the size of zones around antibiotic discs to predict antibiotic resistance levels working alongside a EUCAST database to provide accurate results. The Whitley Jar Gassing System was also on the stand.
