Transformation Hub & Talks New

Future of laboratory medicine in the next decade
3-6 February 2020
Dubai World Trade Centre

New at Medlab Middle East, this new experience will identify technology trends & products, address key questions and provide solutions to implementing advanced technology in the laboratory setting.

This brings business executives and healthcare professionals to explore innovative actions in transforming diagnostic services to deliver quality and rapid tests.

As an add on feature, young generation and future lab professionals will also hear from lab champions and gurus on various career opportunities in the laboratory medicine industry, in the special sessions on Career Talks.

Also launching is the new Transformation Hub, this area next to the talks will give you a chance to see and experience state-of-the-art laboratory solutions.

Featured products

BioFire® FilmArray®

Many infectious diseases present with similar signs and symptoms. Our 5 comprehensive panels take out the guesswork. Each BioFire® FilmArray® Panel targets an infectious disease syndrome by combining a broad grouping of probable pathogenic causes into a single test.

Spartan Cube

The Spartan Cube is a revolutionary device that enables DNA testing with unprecedented convenience. It fits easily into any space, whether in a hospital, doctor’s office, or pharmacy. The incredible power of molecular diagnostics, right at your fingertips. 

Spartan CYP2C19 Test

CYP2C19 is a liver enzyme that metabolizes 15% of all prescribed drugs, including anti-platelet drugs, antidepressants, and PPIs. Carrying a CYP2C19 mutation can impair drug metabolism. In fact, 30% of Caucasians and 50% of Asians and Indians carry CYP2C19 mutations that impair drug metabolism. 

Spartan ApoE Test

There is a market need for a rapid and inexpensive screening test that can be used to easily identify patients carrying the E4/E4 genotype. These patients are at a higher genetic risk for developing Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), and may also respond differently to various AD therapeutics. The Spartan ApoE System is designed to meet this need by providing a rapid, on-site solution for patient screening.



The next generation of syndromic insights
Utilizing real-time PCR, the QIAstat-Dx Analyzer reports on comprehensive panels for respiratory and gastrointestinal targets in about an hour. QIAstat-Dx is the only instrument on the market with both bidirectional LIS connectivity and the ability to export Ct values and endpoint fluorescence values for targets.

The Respiratory Panel analyzes 21 viral and bacterial pathogens, to differentiate the causes of acute respiratory tract infections.

The Gastrointestinal Panel includes comprehensive coverage detecting the 24 most common viral, bacterial and parasitic targets that cause GI infections.

The Meningitis/Encephalitis Panel is currently under development to provide clinical insights for patients with suspected meningitis or encephalitis infections.


The PCR|ONE system is a fully automated, multiplexed PCR system for sample preparation, amplification, and detection of DNA in 15 minutes—a true “sample-in-answer out” technology for rapid point-of-care diagnostics of infections.

The PCR|ONE system is the first completely automated, multiplexed, gold standard PCR system with 15-minute turnaround. The use of physical multiplexing makes the system ready for rapid broadening or modification of the panel of genes inspected, making it responsive to infections as they spread and evolve. This system will be disruptive in the fight against HAIs because it accelerates and simplifies comprehensive diagnosis, enabling comprehensive molecular diagnosis in the admission ward for the first time, reducing the risk of infections, and saving costs and time associated with pathogen isolation.
