COVID-19 | Words from the Symposium Chairs

You will probably agree that in the light of the Covid-19 pandemic “point-of-care diagnostics” has received an entirely new meaning. It is not just about allowing doctors to take diagnostic and treatment measures immediately at the POC – although this is still pivotal. It is also about rapidly tracing a mobile, invisible and possibly deadly enemy amidst our communities who has started to take also an immense toll on global economy.

The implementation of systematic and widespread screening using innovative POC diagnostic tools has its challenges, no doubt, but there is surely societal acceptance and the costs would not be huge. In contrary, it would support – in an ideal case – rapid containment and damage control.

Join us on 29th of October at the Swiss Symposium in Point-of-Care Diagnostics online to share your opinion and learn how innovative new technologies and smart product solutions respond to medical needs and recurring infectious diseases threats – beyond SARS-CoV-2!
