On May 25-26, 2016, the fifth edition of the HealthTech Event will take place at Tyndall National Institute in Cork, Ireland.
This year’s edition will consist of a EPIC Workshop on Photonic Systems for Life Sciences Applications. The event is hosted by The Tyndall National Institute, University College Cork.
Integrated photonic and electronic systems are becoming increasingly pervasive for enabling diagnostics and monitoring for a variety of Life Sciences applications. These include in vitro diagnostic devices used for biomedical and environmental monitoring, process analytical technologies used in the pharma, food and beverage industries, and a range of devices and systems used for life sciences research.
However, key challenges exist before these expansive markets can be accessed. These include the development of low cost reliable and ‘disposable’ components, resolving fouling issues on device surfaces for enabling continuous monitoring, miniaturisation of systems, etc. The complexity of the supply chain management and impacts on regulatory issues such as in the pharma sector will also need to be resolved.
The HealthTech Event will address these issues. Internationally renowned speakers will share their views and knowledge on the topics of interest.
Don’t miss the opportunity to share knowledge, create new partnerships and network actively.
