‘Diagnostics-4-Future Conference‘ is the international meeting-place for users and providers from industry and science.

Based on questions in medical care, clinics and laboratories, innovative solutions for new diagnostics are discussed including research and development. The focus is also on solutions for rural areas (point-of-care). Organizer is the international health network BioLAGO. The conference emerged from the DiagNET project.

Conference Topics

  • Diagnostics of Infectious Diseases
  • Cancer Diagnostics
  • Therapeutical Drug Monitoring
  • New Approaches for Common Diseases
  • Digitalization and Artificial Intelligence in Diagnostics

Characteristics of the Conference

Initiator is the international health network BioLAGO where companies, research institutions and clinics work together on new diagnostics. The conference emerged from the DiagNET project.

Medical need
The discussed matters are highly user-oriented (physicians, clinicians, laboratories, medical centers). Medical needs and compatibility with user processes (clinical routine) are key factors for the conference.

Patient focus
Especially, patient-oriented solutions regarding health-care in regional hospitals are addressed (e.g. point-of-care-testing).

The conference connects partners worldwide with the 4-country region around Lake Constance (Germany, Switzerland, Austria & Liechtenstein). Past conferences brought together experts from over 15 countries (Europe, USA, Asia)
