- for invited guests only -

We would like to invite you to the second of QIAGEN’s Investigator Forums. The first event, held in May 2012, was a great success and we would like to repeat this again in 2013, with exciting new topics and interesting presentations from key opinion leaders. During this event, we will provide an opportunity for you to share experiences with others from the forensic community and learn more about highly relevant and increasingly important topics, such as quality standards and efficiency improvements. There will also be the opportunity to learn more about the latest QIAGEN technologies, visit QIAGEN manufacturing facilities, and attend demonstrations. 

Presentation topics will include:   

1. Updates on quality topics. 

2. Achieving results from challenging samples. 

3. Implementing efficiency improvements in forensic laboratories. 

4. New technologies for forensic analysis. 

There will also be an opportunity to visit our manufacturing facilities, or see QIAGEN technology demonstrated in our applications laboratories. Please note that guests must tour our production area prior to visiting the Application Labs!
