The 26th International Biodetection Technologies: Biothreat and Pathogen Detection is an internationally recognized meeting for experts in detection and 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 followed by Cambridge Healthtech’s Biodetection Technologies: Point-of-Care for Biodefense being held from June 28-29, 2018. Together, these two events will provide three full days of comprehensive programming around biodetection technologies for biodefense.

Topics will include but are not limited to:

  • Next-Generation Sequencing for Pathogen Detection
  • Technologies for Rapid Biodetection
  • Threat Identification and Characterization
  • Biosensor Applications
  • Field Ready Applications
  • Tools at the Point-of-Care
  • Multiplexed Methods
  • PCR and Non PCR Technologies
  • Mass Spectroscopy Applications
  • Biosafety and Containment
  • Assay Development
