Point-of-Care Diagnostics World Congress

12 Sep 2013 - 13 Sep 2013 - San Diego, CA, USA



Bookmark and Share


Today, innovation is essential for the rapidly evolving diagnostics landscape.  While point-of-care testing has the potential to streamline healthcare and improve clinical outcomes, regulators, and clinicians must be creative to translate this potential into a reality. Point-of-Care Diagnostics World Congress will provide an overview of the point-of-care testing landscape, from novel technologies to regulatory approval.  Physicians will offer their perspective on point-of-care adoption in the clinical setting as well as in the global health environment. The aim of this meeting is to bring together life science researchers that work at the interface between biology and chemistry to discuss problems, highlight solutions and facilitating collaborations.

The conference will be co-located with Single Cell Analysis Summit, Microarray World Congress and Lab-on-a-Chip World Congress. Registered delegates will have access to all four meetings ensuring a very cost-effective trip.


You can also present your research on a poster while attending the meeting. Submit an abstract for consideration now!  Poster Submission Deadline: 31 August 2013
