Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Thirteenth Annual

Advanced Diagnostics for Infectious Disease

Improving Clinical Outcomes through Novel Technologies and Molecular Testing

August 25-26, 2021


Advances in technology have opened numerous opportunities for infectious disease diagnostics and have been powered by the events of the past year with the COVID-19 pandemic. New platforms for rapid testing have emerged that greatly reduce the time it takes to diagnose infectious disease. At Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 13th Annual Advanced Diagnostics for Infectious Disease, leaders working in the clinical lab, research, biotech, and pharma will come together to showcase the latest in diagnostic technology and find solutions for the biggest challenges facing the clinical lab, including managing workflow, incorporating NGS and molecular testing, gaining reimbursement and regulatory approval, and more.

Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


  • Innovative technologies and platforms for infectious disease testing
  • RISPR-based methods
  • Implementation of sequencing in the clinical microbiology lab
  • Bringing lab level testing to POCT
  • Role of self-testing and sample pooling for COVID-19 testing
  • What’s next for multiplex panels?
  • Advancing anti-microbial stewardship
  • Value of both antigen vs PCR testing
  • Self-collection of samples
