About the Conference

The world of critical and point-of-care testing (CPOCT) is driven by the need for accurate, rapid diagnosis that is integrated into healthcare systems. To meet this need, new and emerging CPOCT technologies are continually advancing the field with an increasing global adoption in many healthcare settings. 

The Association for Diagnostics & Laboratory Medicine (formerly AACC) will hold the 29th International CPOCT Symposium: Quality Beyond the Lab: Navigating POCT Excellence in Patient Care, September 25-27 in San Diego, California. Over two and a half conference days, you will have opportunities to learn the latest in POCT from interdisciplinary experts, engage with companies in the exhibit hall, and network with peers during poster hall receptions. The symposium promises to deliver stimulating discussions on the latest science and cutting-edge technological advances through a keynote lecture, scientific sessions, panel discussions, and interactive poster receptions.

Registration includes access to the conference, poster sessions, meals (breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks, and an opening reception), and networking opportunities throughout the meeting. Register now!

Target Audience

This symposium is designed to meet the needs of laboratory professionals overseeing and/or carrying out point-of-care testing, clinical laboratory physicians, supervisors, managers, regulatory personnel, and other laboratory professionals interested in advances in point-of-care testing.
