The Exosomes and Single Cell Analysis Summit 2014 features the most up-to-date topics in this expanding field and brings together an array of leading international speakers--the only event in its class, this conference aims to present the audience with the very latest developments in the study of extracellular vesicles (EVs) as well as the analysis of cells at the single cellular level (SCA).

It has become increasingly apparent that the differences between cells in the same population can be significant, and there is therefore a need for improved methods to capture and analyze individual cells such as circulating tumor cells (CTCs), cancer stem cells (CSCs), and the study of single cells for Companion Diagnostics (CDx) development.  This coupled with new approaches for capturing Exosomes and other classes of EVs is driving the field forward vis-à-vis development of biomarker assays, diagnostics development, as well as basic research on isolated individual components.

This conference track will also present the latest technologies/products in flow cytometry, FISH, immuno-magnetic capture, and other approaches for single cell analysis and exosome research via technology spotlight presentations and exhibitors in the co-located exhibit hall.

Single-cell transcriptome analysis can quantify tumor heterogeneity and reveal stepwise clonal evolution of a tumor--this is one of the areas explored in this conference track.

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 Point-of-Care Diagnostics World Congress and Lab-on-a-Chip & Microarray World Congress, 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, and Maximize Networking Opportunities.

Round-Table Breakout Discussions in the Exhibit Hall Allow for Even More Networking with Your Colleagues and Collaborators.

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