Conclusion of POCDx 2018
On behalf of the thematic platform in vitro diagnostics (TP IVD) of the NTN Swiss Biotech the lead organizers, CSEM and HES-SO, would like to wholeheartedly thank all sponsors and partners for their valuable contributions and support of this year’s successful symposium!
The 2nd Swiss Symposium in Point-of-Care Diagnostics takes place on 18 October 2018 in Chur, Switzerland. The event brings together stakeholders from science, medicine, and industry to discuss the opportunities and challenges of developing new and innovative point-of-care diagnostic products.
Participants will gain insight into and help to shape the technological revolution that will deliver decentralized, boundary-less, proximity testing of patients, thus further enabling personalized medicine and making future healthcare better and more efficient. #pocdx18
Prof. Marc E. Pfeifer
We have put together a diverse and exciting program, including 11 expert presentations that address clinical needs, enabling technologies, and innovative products new to the market. Special highlights this year will include the plenary lecture from Prof. Joseph Wang, University of California San Diego (USA), and the keynote speech from Dr. Emmanuel Delamarche, IBM Research, Zurich.
And this year’s industry exhibition is a great opportunity to hear from well-established companies and start-ups alike about their latest products and technological propositions in point-of-care diagnostics.
Chairing the 2nd Swiss Symposium in Point-of-Care Diagnostics is, for us, both a pleasure and an honor. We look forward to welcoming you this autumn to Chur.
