29th ADLM International CPOCT Symposium

About the Conference

The Association for Diagnostics & Laboratory Medicine’s (formerly AACC) will hold the 29th International CPOCT Symposium: Quality Beyond the Lab: Navigating POCT Excellence in Patient Care, September 25-27 in San Diego, CA. You will have opportunities to learn the latest in POCT from interdisciplinary experts, engage with companies in the exhibit hall, and network with peers during poster hall receptions. The symposium promises to deliver stimulating discussions on the latest science and cutting-edge technological advances through a keynote lecture, scientific sessions, panel discussions, and interactive poster receptions.

The world of critical and point-of-care testing (CPOCT) is driven by the need for accurate, rapid diagnosis that is integrated into healthcare systems. To meet this need, new and emerging CPOCT technologies are continually advancing the field with an increasing global adoption in many healthcare settings. Laboratory professionals are central to the successful application of these new and emerging technologies and staying up to date is essential. Our experts will provide real time examples of meeting the ever-evolving challenges the pandemic continues to create.

Registration will open in May 2024 and includes access to sessions, poster hall, and exhibit hall as well as electronic conference materials, breakfasts, lunches, and evening receptions.
