MEDICA 2018: The lab visits the patient

Dear Sir or Madam,

Sometimes time is of the essence and a diagnosis has to be made. In many cases doctors resort to point-of-care tests and thus save valuable time, because sampling and evaluation are carried out from one source and at one location, directly on the patient's premises.

But there is also a lot going on in the laboratory. What actually happens to a sample and what other new detection methods are used in the laboratory? At the MEDICA LABMED FORUM you can inform yourself about new analysis methods, important impulses and current trends in laboratory medicine on all four days of the fair.

Would you like to know exactly what is behind point-of-care testing and what it could look like in the future? Then take a look at the COMPAMED HIGH-TECH FORUM. Experts will dedicate an entire afternoon to this topic on Tuesday, 13 November.

You will also find exciting articles and information on this topic and on the laboratory medicine of the future in our new trend topic The lab visits the patient at MEDICA 2018!

Enjoy reading,

Your MEDICA team
