  • About the FDSS Users Meeting

  • Every two years, Hamamatsu Photonics holds a European-based meeting aimed at users of the Functional Drug Screening System (FDSS®). The meeting features presentations from product experts and researchers using the technique across varied applications within drug discovery, safety toxicology, and disease modeling. It brings together the FDSS community to share, learn and discuss how the system is being applied to today's problems and pioneering tomorrow's capabilities.

    We welcome all our FDSS users, as well as anyone interested in fluorescence and luminescence kinetic plate readers. The meeting is often held virtually as well for anyone who cannot join physically.


  • Testimonials

  • Chairman, Thierry Calmels, Bioprojet Biotech, Paris, France


    "The conferences given are chosen to present different fields of expertise and enable us to maintain our technological watch on current hot topics. These meetings encourage exchanges and knowledge-sharing between users, all in a relaxed atmosphere. It's a great opportunity to build up a network of contacts with top-quality researchers from a wide range of backgrounds, including academia, bio-tech and pharmaceutical companies."

  • Chairman, Dr. Geert Bultynck, KU Leuven, Belgium


    "It was a true pleasure to welcome the FDSS users meeting in the beautiful Old Beguinage, Leuven, Belgium. The highly attended event provided an exhilarating glimpse into the future of FDSS systems. The program further explored the current applications within academic, biotech and pharma industry-based research and developments, uniting a unique blend of key players from diverse realms in life sciences, who rarely have the opportunity to converge. The most recent scientific advances as well as forefront technological developments presented were of the highest level rivaling leading conferences in the field. The atmosphere at the meeting was marked by convivial and collegial interactions with openly shared experiences and insightful discussions. The meeting was highly interactive with active contributions from early career researchers and tech staff to the program and the discussions. Maybe the best testimony for its success  is that discussions continued despite the prospects of a local beer tour. Overall, a highly exciting event for all using or thinking to use FDSS instruments within their research!"

  • Vincent Jaquet, PhD Head of READS unit, Department of Pathology & Immunology, Centre médical universitaire, Genève, Switzerland


    "I have been participating to the Hamamatsu FDSS Users Meeting for 5 years now. This meeting is one of my preferred meetings because of the quality and diversity of the science and the participants (academics, start-ups and pharmaceutical companies). The science is great and the atmosphere is friendly, which favours exchanges of ideas and technical tips."


  • Gautier Roussignol, Sanofi R&D, Montpellier, France


    "The FDSS Users Meeting is a very interesting meeting, with a lot of concrete applications and insights on either new application or how others are performing their own use which may also rise new ideas.

    The meeting also allows room for direct interaction and the event facilitate to discuss more openly over topics."
