SAVE THE DATE

Words from the Symposium Chairs

The 3rd Swiss Symposium in Point-of-Care Diagnostics will take place on 29 October 2020 in the beautiful Valais, more specifically in the city of Visp, a touristic hub to Zermatt with its famous Matterhorn and the spectacular alpine scenery. But Visp is also home of a major industrial site that is further transforming into a significant manufacturing location for innovative biotechnological products.

Significantly evolving is also the field of point-of-care (POC) diagnostics allowing doctors to take diagnostic and treatment measures immediately. Compact tabletop or hand-held medical diagnostic devices have advanced modern healthcare by supporting outpatient treatment, home care and self-testing especially in cases of chronically ill and where long-term medication is necessary. The rise in geriatric population as well as lifestyle changes and a general raise in health awareness in society propels the market for POC diagnostics.

The Swiss Symposium in Point-of-Care Diagnostics is the perfect rendezvous where innovative new technologies and smart product solutions respond to medical needs. We are looking forward to meeting you in Visp!
