U.S. Department of Homeland Security Keynote to Open 16th Biodetection Technologies Conference Next Month in Arlington, VA
Date:5/12/2010

Biodetection Technologies is an internationally recognized event for experts in detection and identification of biological and chemical threats and will explore the latest R&D developments as well as ready-to-market systems for major biothreat detection, identification, and analysis both in the field and at the point-of-care.

(PRWEB) May 12, 2010 -- The Knowledge Foundation has announced that the opening keynote address for the 16th Biodetection Technologies conference will be made by Dr. Michael V. Walter, BioWatch Program Manager at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Dr. Walter will discuss lessons learned from technological problems, the current status of BioWatch Gen-3 sensor-type technologies, and plans for Gen-4 advanced systems. Biodetection Technologies will be held from June 17-18, 2010 at the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington, VA.

Biodetection Technologies is an internationally recognized event for experts in detection and identification of biological and chemical threats and will explore the latest R&D developments as well as ready-to-market systems for major biothreat detection, identification, and analysis both in the field and at the point-of-care. More than 140 organizations from around the world convened in Baltimore for last year’s conference. Program topics include:

- Point-of-care applications for pathogen, virus & threat detection & identification
- Technological challenges for rapid, early, specific & sensitive detection
- Role of nanotechnology and system miniaturization - MEMS & bioMEMS
- Use of biochip technology - micro- & nanofluidics
- Bioinformatics for biodefense
- Field-deployable devices: portability/compatibility/reliability/scalability
- Reagentless vs. reagent biodetection systems
- Non-PCR vs. PCR based detection techniques
