Tracking pathogens worldwide

Dear Sir or Madam,

The laboratory industry seemingly has been dealing with one topic and one topic alone since last year: SARS-CoV-2. "Test, test, test!" has been the motto to contain the pandemic – at least before the introduction of vaccines. But what about other diseases? Scientists are already warning that Corona will not be the last pandemic. And we need good laboratory diagnostics to deal with other diseases, too.

Learn more these in our Trend Topic "Tracking pathogens worldwide" at, at MEDICA 2021 from 15-18 November in Düsseldorf and online in the streams from our forums and conferences.

Enjoy reading!

Wearables are increasingly being used in sports medicine, for example, to prevent injuries or to provide users individually with real-time data about their fitness and health. By analyzing this data, risks for sports injuries can be identified early and training can be customized to the user's needs and goals. In combination with AI, wearables can additionally learn from the collected data and provide the user with personalized tips and suggestions for their training.
