Advances in Biodetection & Biosensors

05 Mar 2013 - 06 Mar 2013 - Barcelona, Spain

Advances in Biodetection and Biosensors is now in its 6th year, and is going from strength to strength.

This year, we are expanding the meeting to incorporate more focus on Biosensors. Biosensors are small analytical devices that can convert a biological stimulus into an electrical signal. These can be for things such as measuring concentrations of substances within the body and are extremely valuable in rapidly detecting when these levels change. For example, biosensors could be extremely valuable to diabetics in rapidly informing the individual when blood glucose levels fluctuate out of normal parameters.

The conference will also cover other areas of biodetection, such as field ready pathogen detection devices, which could be very useful in LEDC’s where there is a need for rapid diagnosis of diseases, when no hospitals are available.

Agenda Topics

    Next Generation Biosensors and Biodetection Techniques
    Nucleic Acid Diagnostic Tests
    Point of Care and Field Ready Pathogen Detection Devices



You can  present your research on a poster while attending the meeting. Submit an abstract for consideration now!

Poster Submission Deadline: 19 February 2013
