The NemaMetrix Team at the European Worm Meeting in Berlin - 2016

NemaMetrix is pleased to announce that we will be attending the 2016 European Worm Meeting in Berlin on June 1-3, 2016.  Attending a European conference is a unique opportunity for us to hear about the dynamic C. elegans research occurring far from our home in the US. We are particularly excited to be hosted by GENiE (Group of Elegans New Investigators in Europe), who have organized the conference. The members of GENiE represent a vibrant new generation of researchers carrying out cutting edge worm research.

If you are attending the conference, please stop by and visit our booth.  We will have a lot going on, including:

  •  Live Demos of the ScreenChip System each day during the poster sessions!
  •  A returning favorite from last year’s International Worm Meeting, the Worm Maze!


We are proud to be showcasing the ScreenChip System, our automated platform for assaying pharyngeal pumping.  As a sensitive measure of overall health, pharyngeal pumping and the ScreenChip System excel at revealing new mutant phenotypes and screening for the effects of drug compounds and peptides.  We can’t wait to see you there.  Be sure to come check us out!
