We cordially invite you to the 15th Annual Conference of the DGKL and the 3rd Symposium of Biomedical Analytics in Mannheim.
We are pleased to be able to organize the congress as a Stuttgart trio together with the DVTA eV as a team.
With the support of colleagues from Switzerland and Austria, we hope to have put together an appealing and interesting program and would like to express the importance of laboratory diagnostics as a foundation for diagnosis and therapy in medicine. New results are reported both from basic research as well as from routine diagnostics. Occupational issues also find their place in the program against the background of demographic change. In workshops and microscopy courses you can become active yourself. Modern techniques such as mass spectrometry and molecular diagnostics as well as bioinformatics and automation have revolutionized our field in recent years and led to an enormous increase in knowledge. However, the use of this information and its useful application for medicine requires expert knowledge from laboratory specialists and laboratory specialists such as laboratory physicians, clinical chemists and medical technical assistants. It is also extremely important to get young people interested in the subject and to train them well.Therefore, aspects of education and training in the program will not be neglected.
With the growing number of biomarkers, their validity must be critically evaluated before use in clinical diagnostics. The goal must be evidence-based laboratory medicine that does not overlook the personalized medicine approach, especially in oncology. The proof of the conductivity and above all the concepts for the implementation of clinical studies for the proof of diagnostic value are the focus of the current investigations. In digital networking in the context of the electronic medical record, the laboratory findings represent very important data and can thus support cross-sector care , There is a need for development not only in the standardization of methods but also in the Europe-wide standardization of (digital) laboratory findings.
POCT analysis is indispensable today for rapid diagnostics in the ambulance, ER, and bedside, and progress in this area will be reflected in the space at the annual meeting. Modern techniques blur the boundaries between the medical diagnostic disciplines and it is therefore worth taking a look outside the box, be it in the dialogue between colleagues but also with the neighboring subjects and partners from the diagnostics industry. Of course, the most important thing is to look at the patients who benefit from the very high quality, performance and benefits of laboratory medicine in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, but unfortunately are not yet sufficiently informed about the subject. Important tasks for the future, which should be tackled jointly by industry, clinical chemists, medical technical assistants and laboratory physicians, are also at this point.
We expect 800 participants from all over Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Mannheim is strategically located in the southwest and is easily accessible by car and train. There are major airports in Frankfurt and Stuttgart. The convention center is well known and allows for a very intensive contact between the conference participants and the exhibitors.
We are very pleased if you contribute again with your presence to the success of the DGKL Annual Conference and the 3rd Symposium of Biomedical Analytics. We wish you an informative and successful meeting in a familiar environment and hope that we have aroused your interest in supporting laboratory medicine – the foundation for diagnosis and therapy. Give yourself and your employees the opportunity to share progress and innovation with your customers. The Congress Presidium and the Palatinate are looking forward to your participation.
