BIODETECTION TECHNOLOGIES 2012 - the 20th conference in our Detection Technologies conference series - is an internationally recognized event for experts in detection & identification of biological threats. This conference will review feedback from end-users of detection and point-of-care devices and explore the latest R&D developments and commercialization efforts in the cutting-edge fields of biodefense related technologies including:
 
• End-users, vendors, OEMs, and first-responders perspective and experience from deployed and near deployment stages
• Cost-effective/sensitive/selective/reliable detectors for low resource conditions
• Point-of-care/clinical applications for pathogen/virus/threat detection and identification
• Simple, easy-to-use devices for air-, water-, and food borne pathogens without PCR
• Point-of-care assays for resource limited, lab and clinical settings; mobile labs
• Technological challenges for rapid/early/specific sensitive detection; multi-sensing
• Reagentless vs. reagent biodetection systems
• Use Raman, Mass spectroscopy, TIRF and other spectral methods for robust biodetection
• Role of nanotechnology and system miniaturization; MEMS and bioMEMS
• Use of biochip technology; micro- and nanofluidics
• Advances in microarray and sequencing technologies
• Bioinformatics and forensics for biodefense
• Reducing false positives vs. detector sensitivity
• Field-deployable devices: portability/compatibility/reliability/scalability
• Non-PCR vs. PCR based detection techniques
• Issues of sensitivity/testing/evaluation/validation
