     Quantification of Endotoxins in Protein Samples


"AT Europe 2018 in Barcelona will always remain a unique and extremely positive experience for me. The scientific program was a really well rounded combination of seminars, oral presentations, round table discussions, and poster sessions. At the same time, even though the program was very tight, there were enough opportunities to regain energy between the different sessions. I was really impressed and positively surprised by the very open and constructive discussions which were held at the end of each session and provided further insight on various important analytical subjects with high relevance for the pharmaceutical industry. The overall atmosphere was very open minded and allowed exchange with various experts from universities, companies and regulators. I am grateful for the opportunity to benefit from the input of other conference participants and to present my current research projects during the poster session. Furthermore, I want to express my gratitude to CASSS for the generous travel grant and to all CASSS members for their friendly support during the last month and especially during the conference."
