Registration


Day One Session
Session Chair: Paul Collinson, Consultant Chemical Pathologist, St Georges University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, United Kingdom

09:00

A Short History of Point of Care Testing: Using What We Know to Get to Precision Medicine
Elizabeth Wagar, Professor, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, United States of America

Point-of-care testing has transitioned from early easy-to-understand concepts to a more complicated paradigm. What has influenced this transition? A number of factors will be discussed including regulatory factors, the evolution of point-of-care technology, healthcare economics, and the development of cutting-edge personalized care. These factors challenge the point-of-care market. Discussion of these factors will be provided to assist in directing technology toward point-of-care utilization.

09:30

David WongKeynote Presentation

Point-of-Care EFIRM-based Liquid Biopsy for Actionable EGFR Mutations in NSCLC
David Wong, Felix and Mildred Yip Endowed Chair in Dentistry; Director for UCLA Center for Oral/Head & Neck Oncology Research, University of California-Los Angeles, United States of America

EFIRM Liquid Biopsy (eLB) permits near perfect detection of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) as compared with tissue genotyping, using a drop of bodily fluid, direct detection, without processing with results available in 10 minutes, at the point-of-care.

10:30

Antibody Microarrays for Point of Care Detection from a Single Drop of Blood
Ashutosh Chilkoti, Director, Duke University, United States of America

I will discuss a point-of-care diagnostic, the D4 Assay that we have developed, in which all reagents are printed and stored on a “non-fouling”protein and cell resistant polymer brush. 

11:00

Coffee and Networking in Exhibition Hall

11:30

Bioanalytical surfaces for PoC applications
Thomas Brandstetter, Group Leader, University of Freiburg, Germany

Point of Care diagnostics (PoCD) require rapid, simple, easy to handle and low-cost bioanalytical approaches. Bioanalytical surfaces play a key role for achieving diagnostic requirements. Here, we review the state of the art of bioanalytical surfaces for PoCD.

12:00

Paper Microfluidic Sensors for Point-of-care Diagnostic Applications in Low-resource Settings
Elain Fu, Professor, Oregon State University, United States of America

This presentation will highlight the development of paper microfluidic tests for infectious disease diagnosis and therapy monitoring in low-resource settings.

12:30

Small Form Factor CMOS Based Sensors For Fast Detection Of Microorganisms And Bio Markers
Valerio Pruneri, Group Leader, ICFO, Barcelona, Spain

13:00

Lunch & Networking in Exhibition Hall

14:30

The Accuracy of Point-of-care Glucose Testing and Its Impact on the Management of Critically Ill Patients
Kathie Hermayer, Professor of Medcine, Medical University of South Carolina, United States of America
Yusheng Zhu, Professor, Medical University of South Carolina, United States of America

This talk will recognize the pathophysiological changes of critically ill patients, review the limitations of the current point-of-care (POC) glucose meters and discuss the new FDA guidelines and quality requirement for future POC glucose meters.

Day Two Session
Session Chair: Paul Collinson, Consultant Chemical Pathologist, St Georges University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, United Kingdom

09:00

SACA Chip for Rapid Circulating Tumor Cells Diagnostics
Fan-Gang Tseng, Distinguished Professor, National Tsing-Hua University, Taiwan

This talk will introduce a novel micro fluidic platform which can isolate CTCs from the real blood sample in 30 minutes by using Self Assembled Cell Array (SACA) technology. Clinical breast cancer and colon cancer samples were verified with high consistency to the patient prognostics.

09:30

Samuel SiaKeynote Presentation

Microfluidics for Personal Mobile Diagnostics
Samuel Sia, Professor, Biomedical Engineering, Columbia University, United States of America
