BSC Annual Meetings

Emerging Innovations and Research in Fluorescence Applications

2020 Annual Meeting

The next Annual Meeting will be in Atlanta, GA, on 19th June 2020. Information will be added to this page as soon as it becomes available.

The Annual Meeting includes a symposium with invited speakers, a business meeting with reports from the Commission’s officers and committees, presentations by members, and informal discussions and question and answer sessions on scientific and technical topics. Participants include users, manufacturers and vendors of stains, experts in dye analysis and testing, and other interested parties, such as representatives of scientific societies, the FDA and the ISO.

These Scientific Meetings usually are held in early June, often in or near Rochester NY, the site of the Commission’s testing laboratory, and also in other major North American cities.
