The Clinical Lab Expo part of the 69th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo conveniently serves up authoritative knowledge on in vitro diagnostics (IVD) both on the exhibit floor and  in hotels, in the form of workshops and lectures, delivered by IVD and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) representatives and other content experts.

On Aug. 1–2, attendees have their pick of a dozen Industry Workshop Exhibit Hall Theater presentations at three exhibit hall theaters, in addition to a dozen Hotel Industry Workshops at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina. These sessions will tap into the latest technologies on point-of-care testing, high-sensitivity cardiac troponin assays, automation and autoimmune testing, and improving quality control strategies and returns on investment.

The OEM Lecture Series in the exhibit hall’s Theater 3 on Aug. 1 will feature five 20-minute presentations from OEMs on topics ranging from immunoassay development to supply chain savings to solutions for succeeding in diagnostic development and commercialization.
