Welcome to the annual meeting 2021 – DiGifZ 2021

Dear friends of cytometry,

It is my great pleasure to announce the 31st Meeting of the German Society for Cytometry (DGfZ), to be held from Sept, 29th to Oct, 1st. Considering the current pandemic situation, we hope the meeting can take place in a hybrid format at the historic campus Charité Mitte, in the center of Berlin – as a combined on-site and virtual conference.

I feel privileged to host this great event, for which we strive to bring together experts from various disciplines for a lively exchange of ideas about game-changing technologies and their newest applications, in accordance with this year´s motto “Innovative technology: expanding perspectives on cells”. A number of exciting invited speakers have already confirmed their attendance, and we will have sessions on well-established topics such as microscopy, cutting-edge technologies, nanotechnology or microbiology as well as on new topics: mechano-cytometry. This inspiring program will certainly spark interesting discussions between scientists, technologists and industrial partners.

In addition to the scientific sessions, we will again have the popular “Product Slam” format, where our industrial sponsors will present their newest innovations within three minutes. There will be opportunities to connect with others and become informed about new products during and after the industry webinars owing to our flexible virtual exchange platform.

I am looking forward to welcoming you at the DiGifZ 2021. Please check regularly our website, as we will adapt our organizational strategy to the pandemic situation.

Raluca Niesner
President of the DGfZ
