OverviewWelcome to the Select Biosciences, Inc. 5th Annual Point-of-Care Diagnostics, Global Health and Emerging Viral Diseases World Congress 2017.
This annual conference will discuss the expanding Point-of-Care Diagnostics and Global Health
fields and bring in the Emerging Viral Diseases
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 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.
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 conference delegates have access to the co-located parallel conferences:
- Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics: Emerging Themes, Technologies and Applications 2017
- Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics: Techologies and Commercialization 2017
