Take the patient sample, send it to the laboratory, wait for the evaluation. Sometimes a tedious process, which should be avoided especially in case of acute problems. Point-of-care tests make it possible for doctors to evaluate samples faster and directly on site. At MEDICA 2018, you can see what it can look like when the laboratory comes to the patient and what the laboratory technology has in store for the future!
When it comes to diagnosing infectious diseases, myocardial infarction or diabetes, physicians resort to point-of-care tests or send a sample to a trusted lab.
Clinical and molecular pathology, microbiology, medical engineering and life sciences are drivers of innovation for all areas of medicine. The MEDICA LABMED FORUM 2018 highlights detection techniques in infectiology, laboratory diagnostics in diabetology and sports medicine, biomarkers in cardiology, and brings together industry and young scientists.
Mix-ups, contamination and sample loss – most errors in histopathology happen when specimen are received. Countless samples arrive daily at the laboratory, while the sample entry process is very monotonous. As a result, the work is inefficient. The start-up company inveox has now developed a system that automates the processes in the pathology laboratory, thus making them more efficient.
COMPAMED offers high-tech solutions for the domain of medical devices. It has become an international leading trade fair for the supplier market of medical manufacturing. The medical devices industry is one of the most dynamically growing markets. This can be seen in the constantly growing numbers of visitors at the COMPAMED/ MEDICA.
IVAM, the professional association for micro-technology, points the way to the COMPAMED HIGH-TECH FORUM by IVAM and presents technologies and solutions for the future.
On the trail of cancer: personalized cancer vaccine
Conventional cancer treatment selection typically depends on the location of the tumor. However, this approach ignores the distinct gene mutations in the tumor of the individual patient. New cancer research approaches increasingly emphasize the concept of personalized therapy. As part of a joint research project, scientists now study a new approach to cancer immunotherapy, which gives emphasis to an individualized treatment.
DiMiMED - International Conference on Disaster and Military Medicine
