Integrating SAMPLE PREPARATION 2011 is an internationally recognized event for experts in sample preparation for detection, identification and analysis of chemical & biological agents, threats and pathogens. This conference will address the major issues and current state-of-the-art in the technologies related to the important phases of real-world sample preparation such as:

- Increasing recognition of sample preparation as the biggest challenge for biodefense and biomedical detection applications
- Sample preparation as a separate system vs. an integrated module approach
- End-user perspective for biodetection and sampling technologies and devices
- Is remote detection without sample preparation a viable option?
- Major challenges of sample preparation system integration approach
- Recent advances in standalone sample preparation systems technology development
- Point-of-care/clinical applications for pathogen/virus/threat sampling, detection, and analysis
- Food, water, air, and environmental sampling
- Alternative and disruptive approaches to sample preparation technologies

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.
