Siemens Showcases Innovative Products and Educational Offerings

DEERFIELD, Ill., July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Siemens Healthcare showcases new and innovative solutions that automate workflow in the clinical laboratory through system consolidation and inter-connectivity of systems in booth #415, Exhibit hall A, McCormick Center, at the 2009 American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) Expo in Chicago, Illinois July 21-23, 2009. Educational workshops sponsored by Siemens and in-booth presentations will cover topics such as sepsis, allergy, women's heart health, and the financial crisis and healthcare reform.


Siemens will sponsor workshops highlighting the latest thought leadership on topics ranging from new tools to aid in the early identification and treatment of sepsis and the emerging trend of automated testing for infectious disease to the financial crisis and healthcare reform. Additional in-booth presentations will highlight how Siemens is helping address several of today's most critical healthcare issues, including the growing incidence of heart disease in women and recent advancements in the use of diagnostics to help improve the management of liver disease. Siemens will also share highlights from its latest research and development initiatives with over 30 scientific poster sessions during the Expo.

In addition, as part of the Siemens Disney alliance -- a twelve year strategic partnership based on Siemens commitment to the delivery of quality healthcare and Disney's legacy of caring for children -- the Siemens booth will feature a presentation on the important role 3gAllergy(TM) blood test plays in the early detection of allergies in children.

"We are excited to share our latest products and solutions with clinical laboratory customers," said Donal Quinn, CEO, Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics. "Our product designs result from collaborating with customers, staying focused on their needs and working together to take diagnostics to the next level."
