During the upcoming WVPA (Edinburgh, September 4 – 8), the BioChek team will be present at booth 36. Come and visit us and learn more about our ELISA and qPCR test kits, the BioChek Monitoring Software and the BEAR (BioChek ELISA Assay Robot). The BioChek team will gladly answer all your questions and provide you with recent studies, flyers and more information.
