Select Biosciences Point-of-Care Diagnostics Europe 2018 brings together the key opinion leaders from both academia and industry, this annual conference will discuss the expanding Point-of-Care Diagnostics and Global Health fields and provide 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 will provide 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 80% of the marketplace) but also with cancer and cardiovascular disease focus. We address each of these segments in this conference.

Registered conference delegates have access to the co-located parallel conference tracks:
  • Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics Europe 2018
  • Organ-on-a-Chip and Tissue-on-a-Chip Europe 2018
The Exhibit Hall is Co-Located with the Conference Tracks and is open 5-6 June 2018.

Information and Local Registration Facilities for this conference are also available in:

Japanese  |  Korean  |  Chinese (Simplified)  |  Chinese (Traditional)
