Select Bio and the Diagnostics Development Hub, part of Exploit Technologies Pte. Ltd. present Singapore’s inaugural Diagnostics Summit. 

The event will take place on the 13-14 October at the Biopolis, Singapore’s custom built biomedical research and development hub, home to a large number of the world’s leading Life Science organisations and A*STAR research institutes. 

Bringing together industry professionals, entrepreneurs, researchers, academia and students, this comprehensive two day meeting will look to address the challenges of translating the latest advances in scientific research into tangible diagnostics solutions. 

A key focus for this conference track is to discuss the relative attributes of both Circulating Biomarkers and Tissue-Based Biomarkers for Companion Diagnostics. We will also highlight Emerging Technologies and Services within the Liquid Biopsy space, in addition to discussing Technology Commercialization, the Regulatory Landscape and Market Entry into Asia.

Please see below for a comprehensive list of the subject areas to be addressed.
