In today's healthcare environment of rapid change, human resource shortages, new technologies, and high expectations for quality and patient safety, laboratory staff are encouraged to innovate and propose new ideas.

In the Asia Pacific region the laboratory medicine market continues to emerge due to the rising need for medical testing and the growing ageing population. This industry is expected to witness growth in the coming future due to technological improvements in testing procedures. Also, as chronic diseases become more common, there is a need to develop sophisticated testing procedures in order to drive industry growth. Medical laboratories provide analytic services to determine the cause of a disease through evaluation of a patient's history, examination, and data.

From new methods of effective lab management to the development of techniques in detecting diseases, the MEDLAB Asia Pacific conferences will cover an extensive range of topics guaranteed to educate and enlighten all. Eleven clinical tracks aim to bring the latest cutting edge information on research and technology to our audience.
