Join experts from academia, industry and medicine to discuss:

- how to translate latest innovations into next generation POC diagnostic products
- how to overcome obstacles associated with clinical adoption of POC diagnostic products

Dear Colleagues

On behalf of the Organizing Committee we would like to invite you to participate at the Swiss Symposium in Point-of-Care Diagnostics on the 26th of October 2017.

The evolution of diagnostic testing at point-of-care (POC) has been naturally propelled forward by the ongoing progress taking place in key fields such as molecular and bioanalytical sciences, where advancements in device miniaturization, and information and communications technology (ICT) have become essential. However, what are the limits to this decentralized and seemingly boundary-less testing? How can new technological possibilities be reconciled with clinical utility and organizational aspects, as well as with economic constraints and regulatory requirements?

This Symposium brings together stakeholders from medicine, industry, public and research institutions to discuss opportunities and challenges along the road to innovative and new POC diagnostic products.

Looking forward to seeing you this autumn in the beautiful Valais.
