Syndromic Testing

Lift the veil on infectious diseases at ECCMID 2023

The future is here. Are you ready?

We’re excited to show you the daring new molecular tools that will transform how you diagnose infectious diseases. From comprehensive multiplex testing, to powerful high throughput automation, to ultra-sensitive digital PCR, to tried and true QuantiFERON technology, there’s something for everyone. See it all at booth C3-03. 

Plus, watch the video to see why ECCMID attendees look forward to visiting us every year.

Join our symposium

Facing a new era in infectious disease control: Unlocking complexity with molecular syndromic multiplex testing

From COVID-19 to Mpox, emerging global outbreaks are a continuous challenge and represent important public health threats. Rapid and accurate diagnostic tests are important for clinical microbiology laboratories and infectious diseases clinicians to improve patient treatment and to understand current epidemiological trends and public health management.

Join us as experts review testing solutions from Mpox to more established infectious diseases such as meningitis/encephalitis and gastroenteritis. The session will bring together expert laboratorians and clinicians to explore the various impacts of syndromic testing and gain new perspective into the post-pandemic world.
