ECCMID 2024

April 27, 2024 - April 30, 2024
Barcelona, Spain

Overview

Oxford Nanopore are sponsors of ECCMID 2024 and will be exhibiting and presenting at this event.

The Oxford Nanopore Sundowner Symposium, Rapid genomic detection and characterisation of pathogens using nanopore sequencing, will take place in Hall L on Monday 29th April 2024 between 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm CET.

This session delves into the transformative impact of genomics in clinical microbiology and infectious disease research. Genomic technologies have unlocked new possibilities, from whole-genome characterisation of microbial pathogens and plasmids to comprehensive profiling of infectious agents and antimicrobial resistance. Despite their potential, legacy sequencing platforms suffer from long turnaround times, high costs, and technical limitations. Join us to hear how our speakers are overcoming these challenges using nanopore sequencing.

Please register below to save your seat at the symposium.

Please also visit us at Booth #C3 if you are able to attend the event.
