(PresseBox) (Berlin , ) Around 100 guests from different European countries, including AGOWA genomics customers, suppliers, local VIPs, biotech partners and LGC colleagues attended. They heard four interesting scientific lectures in the morning, given by AGOWA genomics customers, and took a tour around the new labs and offices in the afternoon.

To discover the new laboratories and to meet the AGOWA people was the highlight of the day for most guests.
