20th Annual Biodetection Technologies 2012

Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 24, 2012

BIODETECTION TECHNOLOGIES 2012 - the 20th conference in our Detection Technologies conference series - is an internationally recognized event for experts in detection & identification of biological threats. This conference will review feedback from end-users of detection and point-of-care devices and explore the latest R&D developments and commercialization efforts in the cutting-edge fields of biodefense related technologies including:

  •     Cost-effective/sensitive/selective/reliable detectors for low resource conditions
  •     Point-of-care/clinical applications for pathogen/virus/threat detection and identification
  •     Technological challenges for rapid/early/specific sensitive detection; multi-sensing
  •     Reagentless vs. reagent biodetection systems
  •     Role of nanotechnology and system miniaturization
  •     Use of biochip technology; microfluidics
  •     Advances in microarray and sequencing technologies
  •     Bioinformatics and forensics for biodefense
  •     Reducing false positives vs. detector sensitivity
  •     Field-deployable devices: portability/compatibility/reliability/scalability
  •     Non-PCR vs. PCR based detection techniques
  •     Issues of sensitivity/testing/evaluation/validation
