2016 Workshop: Realising the benefits of microsampling in academia

July 5, 2016

The NC3Rs is hosting a one-day workshop on microsampling in Central London on 05 July 2016. The workshop is co-organised by Dr Neil Spooner (Spooner Bioanalytical Solutions/University of Hertfordshire) and Dr Darragh Murnane (University of Hertfordshire) and will bring together scientists from academia and industry to share their knowledge and experience of implementing microsampling approaches.

The key objectives of the workshop are to:

  • give participants a broader understanding of what microsampling is, what the currently available techniques are, and what support and resources are available to them.
  • facilitate cross functional discussions on the potential benefits and challenges of implementing microsampling and explore potential solutions to those challenges.
  • provide a framework for a strategy as to how microsampling techniques can be implemented as a standard approach in academic laboratories.

The workshop will be chaired by Dr Neil Spooner, and will include case studies covering practical and 3Rs aspects of microsampling, along with facilitator-led breakout groups.


Attendees are encouraged to submit poster abstracts on relevant topics.  To present a poster, please complete the abstract submission form here and submit by 15 June 2016. We will let you know if you have been successful by 20 June 2016.


There are a limited number of exhibition stands for companies offering microsampling solutions. Please contact events@nc3rs.org.uk for more information.


Attendance is free, but registration is essential. The closing date for registration is 21 June 2016.  Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

You will need an NC3Rs website account to register. Please use your institutional email address when registering.
