Sample Prep East 2013

-

SAMPLE PREP EAST Conference is the 8th meeting in the Knowledge Foundation's Sample Prep Conference Series - an internationally recognized meeting for experts in sample preparation technologies for detection, identification, diagnostics and analysis of biomedical, biological and chemical agents, substances and threats in point-of-care, laboratory and field settings will explore the latest R&D developments, ready-to-market technologies, and their applications by exploring the following topical areas:

- Robust methodologies for sample collection, (pre-)concentration, lysis,
and target extraction
- Critical role of sample prep in early diagnostics
- Rapid sample-to-sequence techniques
- Point-of-care sampling, detection and analysis
- Sample preparation with microfluidics
- Sample prep-on-a-chip
- Robust sampling methodologies (automation, high-throughput, combinatorial
approach in sample prep)
- Alternative amplification techniques for sensitive sample prep
- Sample preparation as a separate system vs. an integrated module approach
- End-user prospective for biodetection and sampling technologies and
devices
- Alternative and disruptive approaches to sample preparation and
applications
- Field-ready devices: compatibility/reliability/scalability


Novel robust sampling and bioforensic techniques will be reviewed as applicable to biodefense, field & point-of-care biomedical & clinical applications, food & water testing, and environmental & agricultural sampling. Our group of leading experts from government, academia and industry will address the following discussion issues and areas of focused technology development and implementation:

- Target enrichment and background depletion techniques
- Isolation of dilute objects on cell and molecular levels
- Immiscible phase purification
- Novel methods of extraction from tough (non-filterable) matrices
- Nucleic acid and protein based sample prep for next generation sequencing
- Nanotechnology and miniaturization challenges for sample preparation
- New assay and sequencing technologies for sample preparation, detection
and analysis
- Standardization and regulatory issues in sample preparation across
different applications
- Sample prep technologies for detection/diagnostics vs. pharma
