Harvard Medical School is Presenting “Neutrophil Chemotaxis Assay from One Drop of Blood” at Sample Prep East in Cambridge, MA, December 9-10, 2013

Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 20, 2013

Industry leaders from around the world will convene in Cambridge, MA for Sample Prep East conference which will take place at the Hyatt Regency Cambridge December 9-10 2013. One of the many anticipated presentations will include Daniel Irimia, PhD, of Harvard Medical School as he presents “Neutrophil Chemotaxis Assay from One Drop of Blood”.

“Neutrophil Chemotaxis Assay from One Drop of Blood”

While the absolute neutrophil count is the most common blood tests in the clinic, it implicitly assumes that all neutrophils are normal and does not account for transient alterations of function. To estimate the risk for infections more accurately in patients with burn injuries, we designed a microfluidic device that measures neutrophil chemotaxis directly from one droplet of blood and employed it to identify interventions that restore normal neutrophil functions.

Sample Prep East Conference Overview:
SAMPLE PREP EAST Conference is the 8th meeting in the Knowledge Foundation’s Sample Prep Conference Series - an internationally recognized meeting for experts in sample preparation technologies for detection, identification, diagnostics and analysis of biomedical, biological and chemical agents, substances and threats in point-of-care, laboratory and field settings will explore the latest R&D developments, ready-to-market technologies, and their applications by exploring the following topical areas:

  • Robust methodologies for sample collection, (pre-)concentration, lysis, and target extraction
  • Critical role of sample prep in early diagnostics
  • Rapid sample-to-sequence techniques
  • Point-of-care sampling, detection and analysis
  • Sample preparation with microfluidics
  • Sample prep-on-a-chip
  • Robust sampling methodologies (automation, high-throughput, combinatorial approach in sample prep)
  • Alternative amplification techniques for sensitive sample prep
  • Sample preparation as a separate system vs. an integrated module approach
  • End-user prospective for biodetection and sampling technologies and devices
  • Alternative and disruptive approaches to sample preparation and applications
  • Field-ready devices: compatibility/reliability/scalability
