Cambridge Healthtech Institute's 27th International

Biodetection Technologies

Biothreat and Pathogen Detection

June 17-18, 2019

The 27th International Biodetection Technologies: Biothreat and Pathogen Detection is an internationally recognized meeting for experts in detection & identification of biological threats. This conference will address the key topics in pathogen detection and present the latest R&D and technological innovation in ready-to-market systems. In addition, this meeting will focus on the latest strategies to overcoming the hurdles to the identification of global biological threats and translational gaps in bringing technologies from lab to field. This conference will feature stimulating discussions, perspectives of end users, high quality case studies and provides the opportunity to network with the leading experts in biodefense from around the globe.

This event is in conjunction with our 27th International Biodetection Technologies: Point-of-Care for Biodefense as well as our 8th Annual Biosurveillance Integration conference. Together, these events will provide three full days of programming around biodetection technologies and biosurveillance in both the field and the lab.   

Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


  • Next Generation Sequencing for Pathogen Detection
  • Technologies for Rapid Biodetection
  • Threat Identification and Characterization
  • Biosensor Applications
  • Field Ready Tools
  • Multiplexed Methods
  • PCR and Non PCR Technologies
  • Mass Spectroscopy Applications
  • Biosafety and Containment
  • Assay Development
  • Environmental Detection and Diagnostics
  • Genome Sequence Analysis for Pathogen Detection
  • Public Health Policy and Preparedness
