Cambridge Healthtech Institute's 27th International

Biodetection Technologies

Point-of-Care for Biodefense

June 18-19, 2019


The development of bioanalytical devices that are portable, compatible, scalable and reliable is critical to effective biodefense at the point-of-care. In addition, clinical data must be generated and incorporated into the key operational decision-maker networks. Cambridge Healthtech’s 27th International Biodetection Technologies: Point-of-Care for Biodefense will bring together the global industry, academic and government biodefense community to discuss advancements in approaches for optimizing performance of field technologies, translational challenges, regulatory approval of diagnostic tools, and data analysis to enable effective decision-making.

This event is in conjunction with our 27th International Biodetection Technologies: Biothreat and Pathogen Detection, as well as our 8th Annual Biosurveillance Integration conferences. 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:


  • Rapid Diagnostics
  • Translation of Technology to Field Ready Applications
  • Advanced Tools at the Point-of-Care
  • Nucleic Acid Technologies
  • Next Generation Sequencing
  • Rapid Identification and Characterization
  • Viral, Bacterial and Fungal Agent Detection
  • DNA and Protein Sensors
  • Immunosensors
  • Biochip and BioMEMs Applications
  • Biosafety and Containment
  • Therapeutics and Vaccines
  • Regulations and Standardization
  • Public Health Preparedness and Policy
