Thousands of microbiologists will soon be coming together in Amsterdam to hear from world renowned infectious disease experts, and to take part in scientific symposia and educational workshops. The 26th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID), held on April 9-12, promises to provide an environment to share cutting-edge ideas and results.
We look forward to speakers presenting their latest findings on diagnosing and managing healthcare-associated infections, posttransplant infections and TB. The speaker lineup for the conference promises exciting new details, and we’ll be showcasing some compelling new workflows for microbial data analysis. Please stop by our booth #59 to learn how our innovative solutions enable improvements in the clinical management of patients.
We’ll also be hosting a symposium at ECCMID geared toward medical microbiologists:
