MSB 2022

International Symposium on Microscale Separations and Bioanalysis

 Liège, Belgium    April 3-6, 2022


Aiming to make MSB 2022 a safe event, only participants with a COVID-Safe certificate will be granted access. The organisers also remain constantly attentive to the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic and, if the situation requires it, additional measures will be taken to ensure a safe and fruitful face-to-face meeting.

The 38th International Symposium on Microscale Separations and Bioanalysis (MSB 2022) will be held at the University of Liège, Belgium. We look forward to welcoming you all to Liège on 3-6 April 2022. You might even extend your stay to enjoy some of the sights available in the neighborhood such as the Ardennes, Brussels, Ghent or Bruges.

After two virtual editions, we hope that by April 2022 we will be able to newly meet face-to-face and discuss fundamental and application-driven aspects of microscale separations and bioanalysis. Attending participants will be requested to show their COVID-Safe certificate at the registration desk. Thank you for your understanding.
