Future Trends for Microanalytical Systems and Chip-based Bioanalytics
Senftenberg, Germany

Recent developments of multiparametric technologies in applied genomics and proteomics research enriched enormously the discovery of novel biomarkers and improved applications in the clinical practice. Comprehensive technologies also simplify clinical diagnosis of autoimmune diseases and lower costs while performing large panels of assays in single wells with high sensitivity and specificity. Methodologies include autoantibody detection and cell pattern recognition but also PCR-based approaches.

The 8th Senftenberg Innovation Forum on Multiparametric Analysis will focus on advances in multiparametric autoimmune diagnostics in research and the healthcare market. Multiparametric technologies are a prerequisite for precision medicine that places the patient at the center of integrated clinical research, diagnosis and therapy. The overall aim is to identify patients who are more susceptible to certain diseases, and who will respond to treatments differently. Multiparametric diagnostic tools are used to understand diseases and to develop preventive diagnostics and individualized therapies. Patient data from genomic, epigenetic, proteomic and environmental sources are combined to find the appropriate treatment or technology to maximize outcomes. Various analytical platforms and novel biomarkers will be presented at this forum as well as new systems that combine cell-based tests with a secondary technology such as protein microarrays, integrated chip technologies or microbeads.
