Welcoming address by Sysmex CEOs
Sysmex Diagnostic Forum 2020 – Experts discuss the future of laboratory diagnostics


It is our great pleasure to invite you to the first Sysmex Diagnostic Forum from 30 March – 1 April 2020 in the conference city of Salzburg, Austria. 

For many years now, we have organised national events with the goal of further education and professional qualification. With the first Sysmex Diagnostic Forum we are breaking new ground. Sysmex companies from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Belgium have worked together to present a variety of innovations and provide the opportunity for a professional exchange with high-ranking experts from the participating countries. The first Sysmex Diagnostic Forum is the perfect dialogue platform for you to discuss central diagnostic questions regarding digital transformation, infection analysis, malignancies and anaemia. As the market leader in the area of haematology, Sysmex strives for a successful cooperation with you to promote progress in healthcare.

Sysmex can offer innovations in many different areas: We continuously advance our expertise in clinical flow cytometry, provide more clinical benefit and workflow progress than ever before with new haematological applications and have launched a unique range of equipment for urinalysis.

Use the Sysmex Diagnostic Forum as a varied platform to get current information and to discuss with colleagues about future trends and developments in laboratory diagnostics. Discover Sysmex product innovations such as our clinical flow cytometry solution for haematological special diagnostics in our Industry Exhibition and be impressed by emerging researchers and exceptional research results in our Poster Session.

We are looking forward to seeing you!
