Critical Issues in Sample Preparation for Pathogen Detection to be Discussed by Leading Organizations in San Diego from April 4-5

Sample Preparation for Virus, Toxin & Pathogen Detection & Identification

Boston, MA | Posted on February 9th, 2011

February 8, 2011 - The Knowledge Foundation has released the Program details for the 4th Sample Prep conference which will be held at the Hilton Resort & Spa in San Diego, CA from April 4-5, 2011.

Sample Prep is an internationally recognized event for experts in sample preparation for detection and identification of viruses, toxins and pathogens. This conference will address the major issues and state-of-the-art in the technologies for real-world sample preparation. Specific topics to be explored when world leaders convene for this high-level symposium include:

* The Critical Role of Sample Prep in Biodefense
* Improvements in Automated Nucleic Acid Extraction & Purification
* Clinical and Point-of-Care Applications for Advanced Sample Prep Technologies
* Overcoming Sample Prep Challenges for Food & Water Safety
* Advances in Microfluidic Technologies for Sample Preparation
* Integrating Sample Prep and Detection into Commercial Systems
