Bringing together leaders from both academia and industry, this conference will discuss the expanding Point-of-Care Diagnostics field and provide the most up-to-date presentations and networking opportunities.

This conference will provide an overview of the point-of-care (POC) testing landscape, from novel technologies to regulatory approval.  Experts in their field will share their views on point-of-care in the clinical setting. The aim of this meeting is to bring together life science researchers that work at the interface between biology and chemistry to discuss problems, highlight solutions and facilitating collaborations.

This conference covers POC Detection, POC Diagnostics, and POC Treatment as part of the Comprehensive Coverage of this Expanding Field.

The POC testing field is expanding focused not only on infectious disease diagnostics [which represents 80% of the marketplace] but also with cancer and cardiovascular disease focus.  We address each of these segments in this conference.

Running alongside the conference will be an exhibition covering the latest technological advances and associated services from leading solution providers within this field. Registered delegates will also have access to the co-located Lab-on-a-Chip & Microarray World Congress and Exosome & Single Cell Analysis Summit, providing ample opportunities for networking and ensuring a very cost-effective trip.

As Part of Registration, Delegates Receive Access to All Three Conference Tracks so as to Mix-and-Match Tracks, Topics, and Presentations.

The Exhibit Hall is Co-Located with the Conference Tracks in the Conference Center for Excellent Networking Opportunities.
