Molecular Diagnostics

The Inaugural Molecular Diagnostics Virtual Conference is now On Demand! This premiere venue is for scientists, technologists, and professionals to discuss and present the newest advances in molecular diagnostics testing. View this online event at no charge, any time.

Check out this video to learn more about this exciting conference!

Molecular diagnostics is growing rapidly as tools to help analyze biological markers become more advanced.  Molecular diagnostic testing is relevant to both identifying markers associated with disease, and clinical applications such as infectious disease detection, oncology, pharmacogenomics, or genetic disease screening. Techniques can be used to diagnose and monitor disease, detect risk, and determine therapies for individual patients. By analyzing markers unique to a patient and their disease, molecular diagnostics looks toward the future of personalized medicine.

Molecular Diagnostics 2016 features informative presentations from keynote speakers and experts including: Dr. William Valenti, Dr. John Longshore, Dr. Alberto Gutierrez, and Dr. Pieter Cullis. Check out the virtual conference to view these and other great speakers at your convenience.

Earn continuing education credits and enjoy the complementary conference from your desk with no need for travel. Explore the virtual exhibit hall to learn about the latest technologies and techniques for your lab.


Watch webcasts with speakers discussing topics such as:

  • Regulations in Molecular Diagnostics Clinical Laboratory Testing
  • Inherited Genetic Disorders and Prenatal Applications in Modern Medicine
  • Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) in the Clinical Laboratory: Reality vs. Opportunity
