23.-24. Nov. 2017 | Potsdam Days on Bioanalysis, BlauArt Tagungshaus, Potsdam Park Sanssoucis
Conference Website: https://www.b2match.eu/potsdamdays-bioanalysis2017
The “Potsdam Days on Bioanalysis” provide a platform for researchers, clinicians and entrepreneurs to discuss diagnostics’ hot topics, trends and recent developments as well as new areas of application and future markets. Facing the medical and technological needs, this year’s Technology Forum focuses on in vitro-diagnostics in the aging society. International well-known speakers present new developments and recent challenges in this area during the following sessions:
PD Dr. Felix von Stetten hält den Vortrag: "A technology platform for digital nucleic acid testing at the point of need", 24. Nov., 11:10 – 11:30 Uhr
The talk provides an introduction to lab automation for point-of-need testing focussing on the centrifugal microfluidic platform. A novel unit operation designated centrifugal step emulsification enables digital amplification and detection on a minute foot print. Digital amplification allows for absolute quantitation of nucleic acids without the need of any standards. Digital PCR, RPA, and LAMP tests in 5,000 to 20,000 droplets have been demonstrated. Applications of the technology in the fields of antibiotic resistance testing are pointed out. Furthermore, possible approaches for technology transfer are outlined.
