Satellite Symposium

The impact of artificial intelligence on
routine molecular diagnostics

October 12th 2017 | 16:15-17:30 CET


Save your seat

Host: Dr. Rob Schuurman, UMC Utrecht

Artificial intelligence

Computers are increasingly capable of difficult tasks. Things like preventing car accidents, analyzing feelings through text and automating MRI-scan analysis are possible today. With the rise of artificial intelligence, molecular microbiologists can reinvent their workflows. 

Hosted by:

Dr Rob Schuurman, PhD, senior clinical microbiologist at UMC Utrecht

Rob will host our symposium and talk about his vision on molecular laboratory automation.

Teaching a computer how to analyze PCR curves

Joachim Jacobs, Chief Data Scientist at UgenTec

Joachim will talk about how UgenTec taught computers how to analyze PCR results and what we learned in the process of doing so.

How FastFinder has automated and standardized a vital part of our workflow

Karen Dierickx, Molecular Biologist, PhD at OLVZ Aalst

Karen will talk about the use of FastFinder in the molecular laboratory of the OLVZ Aalst.

Belgian Beer Reception 


Meet our team

with a beer


Our symposium is filled with interesting keynote speakers & key insights in molecular diagnostic innovation.

Besides great content, we'll also serve a wide variety of Belgian Beers, to celebrate our recent success in MDx.

Everyone is welcome to hear about our product and join our informal networking reception.
