Molecular Diagnostics 2016 Is Here! Join Us April 6th and 7th.
The LabRoots Molecular Diagnostics virtual conference is coming up next week! We are excited to bring you this inaugural event in a field that is growing so quickly and bringing new advancements to the lab and clinic.
The conference is a premiere venue for scientists, technologists, and professionals to discuss and present the newest developments in molecular diagnostics testing. Molecular diagnostic testing is relevant to both identifying markers associated with disease, and clinical applications such as infectious disease detection, oncology, pharmacogenomics, or genetic disease screening. You can attend this online event at no charge.
Join LabRoots in bringing together the molecular diagnostics community. Attend webcasts with top experts and interact with speakers during the live Q&A sessions. Earn continuing education credits and network with peers. Enjoy the complementary conference from your desk with no need for travel, and explore the virtual exhibit hall to learn about the latest technologies and techniques for your lab.
Use #LRmoldx to follow the conversation and don’t miss this great opportunity!
