Point of Care 2014

October 27, 2014 - October 28, 2014

SMi’s Point of Care 2014 conference will be held held October 27-28, 2014 in London, United Kingdom.

The theme of this year’s Point of Care conference is “Market Opportunities and Market Trends.” SMi’s Point of Care 2014 is an excellent opportunity to network with diagnostic manufacturers, pharmaceutical specialists and key healthcare members and practitioners working with PoC technology. Explore the economics, expanding markets, developments, and emerging technologies at Point of Care 2014.

The supply and demand for Point of Care (PoC) technologies has never been greater and now possesses the momentum and trajectory to circumvent analytical, regulatory, political and commercial constraints. Bypassing pathology laboratories and the integration of software interfaces could redirect resources and support comparatively rapid response and action for the patient.

Join a plethora of highly respected speakers as they discuss topics ranging from the analysis of how the future of PoC testing will look and change over the next decade to the different strategies medical trusts are putting in place to increase the use of PoC testing within the patient care setting. Identify potential gaps in the market for new technologies and learn how to successfully implement these in a highly competitive market place.

Highlighted topics for discussion include:

  • Enhancing Quality in Point of Care Testing Trends in Microfluidics for Health
  • Industry Standards for Point of Care Testing
  • Issues in Development and Manufacturing
  • Challenges for Protecting Intellectual Property
  • Key industry trends and market opportunities
  • Emerging technological applications and the latest advances in device technology
  • Overcoming potential barriers to commercialization of a new technology
  • Benefits of non-invasive patient testing

Key opinion leaders deliver this case study driven conference, and will provide insight into contemporary issues and success stories equipping delegates with valuable information essential for success in the global market place.
