Advances in Biodetection and Biosensors is now in its 5th year and is going from strength to strength.

This year, we are expanding the meeting to incorporate more focus on Biosensors. Biosensors are small analytical devices that can convert a biological stimulus into an electrical signal. These can be for things such as measuring concentrations of substances within the body and are extremely valuable in rapidly detecting when these levels change. For example, biosensors could be extremely valuable to diabetics in rapidly informing the individual when blood glucose levels fluctuate out of normal parameters.

The conference will also cover other areas of biodetection, such as field ready pathogen detection devices, which could be very useful in LEDC’s where there is a need for rapid diagnosis of diseases, when no hospitals are available.

Agenda Topics

  • Next Generation Biosensors and Biodetection Techniques
  • Nucleic Acid Diagnostic Tests
  • Point of Care and Field Ready Pathogen Detection Devices
