Biocare Medical would like to thank you for making the 36th Annual National Society of Histotechnology in Seattle, Washington the most successful meeting by far! Over 40% more visitors than last year joined us for an interactive learning experience to find out about the latest IHC and Molecular Pathology technologies, techniques, and products.

Over steaming cups of hot coffee we chatted about everything from Biocare’s IVD p63 and novel Multiplex IHC antibodies, to the upcoming intelliPATH PRO™ instrument and the Molecular Pathology SPOT-Light® HER2 CISH and RISH™ product lines. Good times!

Many of these educational workshops were over-subscribed, well-attended and we received many requests for follow-up information – another great success!
