ParaTechs’ Events and Conferences

ParaTechs attends scientific meetings and trade shows to further the knowledge of our innovative technologies for easier and more cost effective research. We enjoy these opportunities to network, exchange ideas and meet potential new customers, partners and collaborators. We encourage you to visit us so we may introduce ourselves to you.

NSET Events/Conferences

    • Attend ParaTechs Corporation’s Half-Day NSET Training Course and Workshop [PDF]. This workshop is tailored to help each participant become competent with the technique and use of the NSET Device for Mice. For more information please contact margo@paratechs.com.
    • CARD-IP Mouse Sperm and Embryo Cryopreservation Workshop. This one-week course presented a combination of lectures and intensive hands-on sessions to learn the most up-to-date CARD methods in mouse cryopreservation. The aim of this course was to introduce the newest CARD methods to researchers and technicians involved in mouse archiving and/or managing transgenic facilities and who are willing to implement these new methods in their work. These techniques were taught directly by the team that devised them. ParaTechs Director of NSET Technology, Dr. Barbara Stone, led the Embryo Transfer and Artificial Insemination in Mice using the NSET Device portion of the course. October24 – 28, 2016; Institut Pasteur, Paris, France. http://www.pasteur.fr/en/teaching/workshops/mouse-sperm-and-embryo-cryopreservation-course .
