Recent advancements and innovation in pathology and laboratory medicine 


The laboratory in a hospital is a fundamental and valuable component to the overall care given to a patient. The one-day Pathology and Medical Laboratory Conference will go in depth to look at how the laboratory can improve on results using new technology, while also saving costs and providing stronger outcomes for the patients. 

With the healthcare system moving towards preventative and value-based medicine, the medical laboratory will have a significant role to play in this improvement. This conference will bring together experts from around KSA and the greater region to ensure necessary discussions that will lead to further research and development in key diagnostic areas. As well as discuss the challenges faced, with stimulating conversations on how to improve and face these difficulties. 


Key topics:

  • Molecular diagnostics and personalised medicine
  • Accreditation and quality management 
  • Efficient management of laboratories 
  • Role of POCT in improving patient outcomes 
  • Next generation sequencing
  • Laboratory errors: how to avoid and manage them and implications for patient management
