Davos / Switzerland

4th edition | Words from the Symposium Chairs

The 4th Swiss Symposium in Point-of-Care Diagnostics will take place on October 21, 2021 in Davos – an extraordinary location where many important events take place including the famous world economic forum (WEF).

The past year showed us more than ever the need for fast and reliable diagnostic tools to efficiently fight the spread of a pandemic threat. While the world is facing a tragic death toll as well as significant societal and economic challenges, the situation gives an enormous push to digitalization, telemedicine and especially also to the field of point-of-care (POC) diagnostics. In the future this will offer to health care professionals new methods for immediate diagnostic and treatment measures, opening up new business opportunities for established and start-up companies.

At the same time there is a continuous need for robust, cost-effective POC diagnostic tools to support 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 in society further drives the market for POC diagnostics.

The Swiss Symposium in Point-of-Care Diagnostics is the perfect venue to meet and exchange on new technologies and innovative product solutions addressing medical needs in POC diagnostics.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Davos in 2021!
