Citylabs Lounge: The Future of Healthcare and Diagnostics with ASTA UK
Wed 3 May 2017, 08:00 – 09:30 BST
Citylabs Lounge is a monthly networking event for clinicians, academics, healthcare businesses and all others who are interested in current topical issues and challenges in healthcare and life science sectors. Located in the heart of Manchester’s Innovation District, these events provide a valuable opportunity for people to engage with prospective clients and customers, and have their say on the issues discussed.
At the next Citylabs Lounge, we will hear from ASTA UK (Applied Surface Technology Ascent) - a technology based company that develops and manufactures analytical instruments.
Omar Belgacem, Executive Director at ASTA UK, will share insight into the latest in MALDI TOF technologies and their applications within microbial identification and diagnostics. Omar will explain the most recent developments in the field, and give attendees an understanding of how this technology has changed and evolved, leading up to this most recent development which will displace pre-existing methods.
Disruptive technologies have changed the face of many markets, and ASTA UK is developing one that will change the face of diagnostics and the future of healthcare. Making technology faster, cheaper and more accurate will improve efficiencies within the healthcare market and save valuable resources.
What to expect from the event?
You will have the chance to gain an understanding of what the future of diagnostics may look like in the not-so-distant future and an opportunity to learn more about mass-spectrometry applications. Omar will also discuss how disruptive technology has changed the market in microbial diagnostics and how this technology could displace other well-established diagnostic technologies.
