The Agilent booth will showcase the company’s portfolio of genomics and Dako pathology solutions. The company’s Learning Theater, located next to its main booth in the Exhibition Hall, will feature international experts speaking on companion diagnostics, molecular pathology, next-generation sequencing and immunohistochemistry.

Agilent will also introduce a new white paper at USCAP: “Breast Cancer Diagnosis: Past, Present and Future,” by pathologists Ping Tang and David G.
