The past year showed us more than ever the need for fast and reliable diagnostic tools to efficiently fight the spread of a pandemic threat. While the world is facing a tragic death toll as well as significant societal and economic challenges, the situation gives an enormous push to digitalization, telemedicine and especially also to the field of point-of-care (POC) diagnostics. In the future this will offer to health care professionals new methods for immediate diagnostic and treatment measures, opening up new business opportunities for established and start-up companies.

At the same time there is a continuous need for robust, cost-effective POC diagnostic tools to support outpatient treatment, home care and self-testing especially in cases of chronically ill and where long-term medication is necessary. The rise in geriatric population as well as lifestyle changes in society further drives the market for POC diagnostics.

The Swiss Symposium in Point-of-Care Diagnostics is the perfect venue to meet and exchange on new technologies and innovative product solutions addressing medical needs in POC diagnostics.
