Description

8th International Conference SAMPLE PREP EAST December  9  - 10 ,  2013      Boston,  MA   USA

 

SAMPLE PREP EAST Conference is the 8th meeting in the Knowledge Foundation’s Sample Prep Conference Series - an internationally recognized meeting for experts in sample preparation technologies for detection, identification, diagnostics and analysis of biomedical, biological and chemical agents, substances  and threats in point-of-care, laboratory and field settings will explore the latest R&D developments, ready-to-market technologies, and their applications by exploring the following topical areas: - Robust methodologies for sample collection, (pre-)concentration, lysis, and target extraction - Critical role of sample prep in early diagnostics - Rapid sample-to-sequence techniques - Point-of-care sampling, detection and analysis - Sample preparation with microfluidics - Sample prep-on-a-chip - Robust sampling methodologies (automation, high-throughput, combinatorial approach in sample prep) - Alternative amplification techniques for sensitive sample prep - Sample preparation as a separate system vs. an integrated module approach - End-user prospective for biodetection and sampling technologies and devices - Alternative and disruptive approaches to sample preparation and applications - Field-ready devices: compatibility/reliability/scalability Novel robust sampling and bioforensic techniques will be reviewed as applicable to biodefense, field & point-of-care biomedical & clinical applications, food & water testing, and environmental & agricultural sampling. Our group of leading experts from government, academia and industry will address the following discussion issues and areas of focused technology development and implementation: - Target enrichment and background depletion techniques - Isolation of dilute objects on cell and molecular levels - Immiscible phase purification - Novel methods of extraction from tough (non-filterable) matrices - Nucleic acid and protein based sample prep for next generation sequencing - Nanotechnology and miniaturization challenges for sample preparation - New assay and sequencing technologies for sample preparation, detection and analysis - Standardization and regulatory issues in sample preparation across different applications - Sample prep technologies for detection/diagnostics vs. pharma
