Conference on "Molecular Labels, Signaling and Detection

James Larkin symposia at
Mon Oct 5 17:41:36 EST 1998

First Announcement and Call for Papers

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Third Annual
Sensitivity, Accuracy, and Speed
April 12-13 1999
US Grant Hotel
San Diego CA

Extending the limits of assay sensitivity and accuracy, while also
meeting the demand for greater throughput or lower cost, 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,
contaminants and a variety of other targets.

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

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