And, we're in conference season! Here are just two of the conferences we will be presenting at in the course of the next month:
1. Advamed 2013, in DC, September 23-25. Ariel Beery will be presenting there on Tuesday, September 24, at 10:05, about our venture and potential to become a key part of the medical infrastructure for point-of-care diagnostics in low resource settings. We're excited about Advamed because we'll get to meet some of the most interesting groups in medical devices out there, and hope to make the right connections to bring our technology to the places that need it most.
2. NCI-NIBIB Conference on Cancer Technologies, in Maryland, October 7-9. Our own Dr. Levitz will be presenting our prototype device, pictured here to the left, at a conference whose introductory text reflects exactly what we're aspiring to: "Cancer is a leading cause of death and disability, especially in low resource settings. An emerging answer to improve medical care delivery is point of care technologies that enable convenient and immediate healthcare at or near the patient's bedside. These point of care devices are based on enabling tools such as lab-on-a-chip (LOC), biosensors, portable ultrasound imaging, hand held scanners and communication devices. Most are portable and useful outside hospital settings. Such technologies can be adapted to bring cancer detection, diagnostics, monitoring and treatment to the patient, rather than the other way around, and are especially useful in global health settings." We agree. That is why we're doing what we're doing.
Will you be at either conference? Or at another we may be attending and want to get to know us better? Drop us a line! We'd love to see you there:
