Overview

Welcome to the SelectBIO Point-of-Care Diagnostics, Biosensors & Global Health 2019 Conference.

This annual conference discusses the expanding Point-of-Care Diagnostics and Global Health fields and bring in the Biosensors field providing the most up-to-date presentations from leaders in these fields and offer networking and engagement opportunities with delegates from around the world.

This conference provides an overview of the point-of-care (POC) testing landscape, from novel technologies to regulatory approval.  Experts in these fields 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 and technology development to discuss problems, highlight solutions and facilitating collaborations. Also, we frame the role of POC testing in the expanding Global Health field and highlight opportunities existing in many parts of the world.

This conference covers POC Detection, POC Diagnostics and POC-based Treatment Options 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 approximately 80% of the marketplace) but also with cancer and cardiovascular disease focus. We address each of these segments in this conference.

Registered delegates have full access to the co-located and concurrent conferences to mix-and-match presentations and maximize networking:
  • Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics: Emerging Themes, Technologies and Applications 2019
  • Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics: Techologies, Companies and Commercialization 2019
  • Point-of-Care Diagnostics and Global Health 2019
  • Single Cells, Single Molecules & Vesicles Summit 2019
  • Microfluidics and Flow Chemistry 2019
The Conference Features the Following Panel Discussions:
  • "Global Health Panel Discussion" Chaired by Amy Adelberger (CEO, Global Impact Advisors).
  • "POC Diagnostics to the Market — A Panel Discussion of Industry Participants" Chaired by John Brennan (Professor and Director, McMaster University).
