The Corona pandemic has shown us: We are ill-prepared for new infectious diseases – at least as far as wide-area diagnostics are concerned. They first had to be established, and at times they were limited again by the availability of materials. We should therefore ask ourselves: How can we continue to ensure flexible, reliable infection diagnostics in the future – especially at neuralgic points such as healthcare facilities? Learn more about this in our MEDICA DEEP DIVE!
MEDICA DEEP DIVE is now available as video-on-demand

At present, testing is still frequently carried out in places where people congregate in order to slow down the spread of the Corona virus. The means of choice are often rapid tests that screen many people without much effort. This is at the expense of reliability. This, in turn, is higher with PCR tests, but their performance depends on materials, laboratories and trained personnel.
So, we have to make compromises in infection diagnostics. Or we can continue to develop the available technologies to better meet the needs of users and increase infection protection.
Find out what this can look like today in our MEDICA DEEP DIVE: Our experts discuss how testing processes can be improved, for example in hospitals, and which technologies can help us stay one step ahead of infectious diseases now and in the future.
