2018 ASCLD Symposium

  • Dates: 20 – 24 May, 2018
  • Location: Atlanta, GA, U.S.

The 45th annual ASCLD Symposium will feature new initiatives to advance forensic science. 

Massively Parallel Sequencing is being implemented now. Battelle is working with forensic labs across the country to integrate MPS technologies, optimize workflows and develop new quality control and validation methods. As more labs implement MPS and the technology matures, the industry can expect to see implementation timelines condense and validation methods standardize. We are only just beginning to see how MPS will change the forensic landscape.

Stop by Booth #323 at ASCLD to meet with one of our experts and learn how MPS can make a difference in your lab.
