Point-of-care tests enable doctors to evaluate the samples of their patients directly on site. This avoids the time consuming task of getting into and out of the laboratory, especially in case of acute problems. At MEDICA you can see how diagnosis and analysis can look like from a single source.
Current issues from the areas of medicine and research will be discussed at the new MEDICA LABMED FORUM in Düsseldorf from 13 to 16 November 2017.
Under the guiding principle "The Interdisciplinary Fascination", laboratory medicine, molecular pathology, microbiology, medical technology and life sciences present themselves as innovation drivers providing new impulses for all areas of medicine.
Doctors and patients, health policymakers and healthcare providers, media representatives and all other visitors of the world's largest medical trade fair are invited to four exciting focal days with top-class lectures and panel discussions.

Molecular Microsystems: Preventing Exacerbations of Asthma and COPD
An increasing percentage of the world population suffers from chronic inflammatory disorders of the respiratory system. Acute attacks often lead to a worsening of the disease and considerably reduce the lung volume. Nine institutes of a research alliance under the Leibniz Institute umbrella are working on technologies designed to predict and thus prevent exacerbations.
The MEDICA TECH FORUM in Hall 12 will be held for the eighth time this year. With alternating focal points experts will present technical, scientific, regulatory and political – in any case market-relevant – topics pertaining to the medical technology industry. The leading content-related industry associations SPECTARIS and ZVEI will discuss the German and the international market environment in the most varying ways as well as the implementation of modern processes and methods in practice. Particularly in the digitization complex, the trendtopics are increasingly less focused on other forums at MEDICA, although medical technology defines the perspective of the MEDICA TECH FORUM.
Wednesday, 15 November 2017 12:20 - 12:40 h: Mikroresonatoren für die Point-of-Care-Diagnostik? Prof. Dr. rer. nat. habil. Hans-Peter Deigner, Hochschule Furtwangen, Institute of Precision Medicine, Furtwangen

Point-of-care testing in the hospital – quality diagnostic results
Point-of-care testing is an integral part of medicine. It enables simple, automated testing that yields fast results. Hospitals have also started to increasingly use POCT diagnostic systems over the past few years.
