BIODETECTION TECHNOLOGIES 2013 - the 21st conference in our Detection Technologies conference series - is an internationally recognized meeting for experts in detection & identification of biological threats and point-of-care analytical methods. This conference will review feedback from the end-users on biodefense and biomedical technologies and explore the cutting-edge in R&D and commercialization efforts in the field, including:


• Point-of-care/clinical applications for pathogen/virus/threat detection and identification

• Rapid/cost-effective/sensitive/selective/reliable detectors for low resource conditions

• Simple, easy-to-use devices for air-, water-, and food borne pathogens without PCR

• End-users, vendors, OEMs, and first-responders perspective and experience from deployed and near deployment stages

• Point-of-care assays for resource limited, lab and clinical settings; mobile labs

• Technological challenges for rapid/early/specific sensitive detection; multi-sensing

• Reagentless vs. reagent biodetection systems

• Use Raman, Mass spectroscopy, TIRF and other spectral methods for robust biodetection

• Role of nanotechnology and system miniaturization; MEMS and bioMEMS

• Use of biochip technology; micro- and nanofluidics

• Advances in microarray and sequencing technologies

• Bioinformatics and forensics for biodefense

• Reducing false positives vs. detector sensitivity

• Field-deployable devices: portability/compatibility/reliability/scalability

• Non-PCR vs. PCR based detection techniques

• Issues of sensitivity/testing/evaluation/validation
