First Announcement and Call for Papers

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Second Annual
Advances in MOLECULAR LABELS, SIGNALING & DETECTION: 
Enhancing Sensitivity, Accuracy and Speed
May 4-5, 1998
San Diego Hilton

Extending the limits of assay sensitivity and accuracy, at the same 
time meeting the demand for greater speed, requires the application 
of innovative techniques and systems.  The development of new probes 
and labels, homogeneous assay designs, and approaches which allow 
for the direct detection of compounds or specific binding events are 
having an impact in basic research, diagnostic and drug development 
segments.  Novel fluorescent and luminescent technology are also 
critical for the implementation of greater speed and automation.  
These advances are being applied to the detection, quantification 
and localization of gene sequences, proteins, infectious organisms 
and a variety of other targets.

Researchers are encouraged to submit a proposal  for presentation of 
their own work.  Recommendations for other speakers to be considered 
are also welcomed.  Among the topics to be covered are:

Novel Probes and Labels
New Homogeneous Assays
Methods for Direct (Non-amplified) Quantitation
Methods for Ultra-Sensitive Detection
Novel Fluorescent Assay Systems
New Luminescent Approaches
