About the Event

We are excited to share our upcoming participation at the AUC 2024, the 26th International Analytical Ultracentrifugation Workshop and Symposium. This prestigious biannual event will take place at Kloster Banz in Bad Staffelstein, Germany, from July 22-27, 2024.

The event is dedicated to the comprehensive characterization of biological macromolecules, virus particles, vesicles, LNPs, nanoparticles, and interacting systems. It places a special emphasis on utilizing Analytical Ultracentrifugation (AUC) and complementary techniques for characterization of macromolecules and particles in solution.

Workshops at AUC 2024: Expand Your Knowledge with Leading Experts

AUC 2024 will kick off with a series of workshops led by renowned experts in their respective fields. These workshops offer a unique opportunity to delve deeper into various AUC methodologies and gain valuable insights. Here are two workshops supported by Beckman Coulter Life Sciences:

  • OPTIMA AUC Toolbox Workshop (Presented by Dr. Amy Henrickson and Dr. Lutz Erhardt on July 22nd)

    Join us for an informative workshop where we will provide a comprehensive overview of the AUC toolbox. We will explore different methods, including sedimentation velocity (SV), density matching, density gradient equilibrium (DGE), band sedimentation (BS), sedimentation equilibrium (SE), and multiwavelength (MW) techniques. Discover the principles behind each method, the valuable information they can provide, and real-world examples showcasing their applications.
  • Multiwavelength SV and ABDE (DGE) AUC for AAV Characterization (Presented by Dr. Amy Henrickson on July 23rd)

    Explore the power of multiwavelength analytical ultracentrifugation (MW-AUC) in this workshop led by Dr. Amy Henrickson. MW-AUC, enabled by the new Optima AUC, enhances hydrodynamic characterization by incorporating a spectral dimension. Discover how MW-AUC identifies different spectral molecules, making it an essential tool for studying macromolecular interactions. Focus on the ABDE method, which separates analytes based on densities, reducing sample volume compared to traditional sedimentation velocity (SV) experiments. Explore the analysis and method setup of adeno-associated viruses (AAVs) using multiwavelength SV and ABDE methods in UltraScan.
