STIs and Cervical Cancer
Although most STIs have no or only mild symptoms, the 1 million STIs acquired every day profoundly impact global health worldwide.
A successful forensic investigation begins with a proper sample, and proper samples are obtained using the appropriate collection method.

Medlab Middle East
In 2021 Medlab Middle East will be located with Arab Health. This combination will accelerate innovation and strengthen the capability to provide more relevant solutions, bringing two key communities – healthcare and medical laboratory – together under one roof.
The European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases meeting is one of the most influential congresses in the field of microbiology. ECCMID scientific program is a synthesis of current priorities in clinical microbiology and infection: diagnosis, treatment, epidemiology, and prevention of infectious diseases, as well as related basic microbiology.
European Society of Clinical Virology – ESCV
The Conference of European Society for Clinical Virology program covers the most recent discoveries and innovations in Clinical Virology. Sessions will include the use of Next Generation Sequencing, Hepatitis, Emerging Viruses and Zoonoses, Viral infections in Pregnancy, as well as Advancements in Diagnosis, Monitoring, Prevention and Treatment of a range of viral diseases.
Congresso Nazionale della Società Italiana di Microbiologia
49th SIM 2021 Congress will aim to take stock of the situation on research, at two different times.
The first will take place over two days dedicated to the presentation of posters and the second on 20 and 21 September for the oral sessions. In particular, the days of 16 and 17 September will be dedicated to e-Posters, with data from SIM research in all its facets, to try to take stock of the post-covid era and how to build it. In the two days of oral sessions, on the other hand, national experts will deal with the hottest topics of the day, from SARS-Cov-2 to vaccines, from diagnostics to pathogenesis and resistance, from fungi to rapid diagnostics.
Asia Pacific Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infection – APCCMI
APCCMI 2021 will build on this rich history in Singapore and regional collaboration. The congress will focus on:
- Advances in infection control, microbiome and vaccines; new antimicrobials and antimicrobial stewardship.
- Advances in microbiology including rapid diagnostics, applications in whole-genome sequencing, laboratory automation;
- Antimicrobial resistance in humans and within the One Health context of animals, humans and the environment;
- Challenges and progress in the three pandemic infections of HIV, Malaria, and Tuberculosis;
- Emerging infectious diseases prevalent in the region (Chikungunya, Dengue, Zika) and globally (Avian and seasonal influenza, MERS-CoV)
The 6th International Conference on Prevention & Infection Control (ICPIC), which will be held on 14-17 September 2021.
After the challenging past year through the COVID-19 pandemic, the need to bring together the global IPC community becomes even stronger. We believe that all required conditions will be met next September to be able to organize a safe, interactive and stimulating face-to-face conference.
The virtual edition returns
More time. More valuable contacts. More return.
In a changing world and with limited resources we realise it’s more important than ever to spend your time and money wisely. So, they’ve completely reviewed and redefined the Medlab Asia & Asia Health experience, introducing an online platform.
Microbiology Time – July 2021
Introducing a new way of communicating the science around our products! While we’ll constantly update the scientific repository on our website, in this “Microbiology Time” posts we’ll suggest to you the three best papers of the month! This month featuring S.pyogenes diagnosis, fecal microbiome preservation, and automated AST.
Microbiology Time – August 2021
It’s August Microbiology Time! We just updated our website’s scientific database and chose the best three papers of the month: a study on extrapulmonary samples processing with MycoTB™, an alternative to PCR for Sars-CoV-2 diagnosis, and the first feedback from the LolliSponge™ use to collect saliva for COVID-9 screening.
Copan, putting Covid-19 challenges behind and setting up for the post-pandemic scenario
With an email to the main distributors, Copan group’s CEO describes how the ramp-up of Covid-19-related products has been concluded, and how the company is now reorganizing to face post-pandemic challenges.
Last Tuesday, Copan partners received an email signed by Copan’s CEO Stefania Triva herself. Certainly, it was not the first email they received from the leader in preanalytics last year. Still, this time the communication tried to put a full stop to pandemic-related struggles, informing about the accomplishment of 2020 common goals and reorganizing the company and its network for the years to come.
Copan Response to the Pandemic and our Efforts to Fight COVID-19 Worldwide
When supermarket shelves across the country were suddenly bare — and people were clamoring for essentials like toilet paper — everyone learned a little more than they wanted to about the importance of supply chains.
