Bringing together the key opinion leaders from both academia and industry, this 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 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 additional co-located parallel conferences:

1. Lab-on-a-Chip, Microfluidics & Microarray World Congress
2. Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), Single Cell Analysis (SCA) and Mass Spectrometry: The Road to Diagnostics

This provides conference delegates the ability to Mix-and-Match Tracks, Topics, and Presentations as well as Maximizing Networking Opportunities. The Exhibit Hall is Co-Located with the Conference Tracks in the Conference Center for Excellent Networking Opportunities and a Large Number of Leading-Edge Companies from Around the World will be Displaying their Technologies, Products and Services.  Excellent opportunity for business development, partnering, and sales venue for vendors in these fields. Exhibit Hall is Open all day on September 29 and 30, 2015.

Submit a Poster to Present your Research at this Conference. Poster Submission Deadline: September 22, 2015.
