The Destination Characterisation Roadshow brings some of the most experienced scientists together for a day to share their research findings, provide a channel for networking with like-minded individuals, and inspire ideas for tackling challenges in research. Hear how researchers like you have benefitted from using NanoTemper products to further their research.

Whether you are interested in learning more or have experience with identifying protein quality, measuring binding affinity or characterising protein stability, you’ll walk away from this event with valuable research insights, a connection with others in your field, and we also hope, a little bit of fun.


Here’s what you can expect. Check back for the most up-to-date agenda.
