MOLECULAR DIAGNOSTICS

5 FEBRUARY 2018

Overview

Molecular diagnostics is being applied to the clinical setting for greater speed and accuracy of healthcare delivery, while paving the way for a new era in medicine.  New molecular-based tools are rapidly entering the laboratories and creating a new paradigm in healthcare.

This Molecular Diagnostics conference at MEDLAB will bring together a balance of industry and academe, so that delegates have the unique opportunity to network with colleagues from different sectors and gain fresh perspective on the various researches and studies on molecular and non-molecular rapid diagnostic techniques and Next Generation Sequencing.

Key topics

  • Current and future biomarkers of inflammation
  • Molecular tools in pathogen surveillance and outbreaks
  • Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) for molecular diagnostics
  • NGS for Hepatitis C virus
  • NGS for outbreak investigation

Benefits of attending:

  • Evaluate current and future biomarkers
  • Review technology and its applications for molecular diagnostics
  • Discuss test validation and verification in the molecular laboratory
  • Examine application of gene therapy or biologic response modifiers
