Exciting Changes in the Diagnostics Industry Highlighted at Next Generation Dx Summit 2016

"Diagnostics is exploding thanks to next generation technologies. Advances in NGS assays, point-of-care diagnostics, companion diagnostics, DNA forensics, struggles with interpretation and incidental findings, and the regulatory structure surrounding all of it were the topics of four days of conversations in late August at the Next Generation Diagnostics Summit in Washington, D.C."

Allison Proffitt, Editorial Director, Diagnostics World

The 2016 event brought together 1,000 of the key players in the international diagnostics community to collaborate and navigate the tremendous opportunity the industry has to advance medicine together. A special thank you to the speaking faculty, attendees, sponsors, exhibitors and media who made this event the annual meeting place for critical updates and inspiring discussion once again.
