Clinical Diagnostics & Research 2018

Our 9th Annual Clinical Diagnostics & Research  Virtual Event is now available On Demand!

Clinical diagnostics is an ever-changing field of medicine and research, challenged with combining several different scientific disciplines into one for the sake of diagnosis and treatment of human disease. The constant flux in the field is due to continuous progress made with advances in laboratory testing and patient care and treatment. With new technologies and treatments available, updates in regulatory processes are also necessary to ensure patient safety and proper practices.

By bringing together clinicians, researchers, medical experts and professionals from around the world, LabRoots aims to help drive collaborations and in turn, advances in clinical diagnostics, research and medicine. This complementary conference offers an amazing opportunity to benefit from interacting with a global community of like-minded colleagues from the comfort of home.

Topic's for this years event included: 

  • POC/POC Testing
  • Regulatory
  • Pain Management
  • Laboratory Testing and Management
  • Opioids
  • Hematology/Cardio
  • Informatics/Med Data Analytics


Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. You can participate in exactly those parts which you are interested in and be back at your desk or bench in an instant.
