As more and more hospitals are applying for ISO, there is a need for more practical examples of how to implement solutions to ISO standards for POCT. This unique day is designed to bring POCT managers and manufacturers together with an assessor to share experience and insight into standards, accreditation and going through the assessment process.
Have you considered sponsoring or exhibiting at this day? If you join us in 2017, you will be able to talk directly to this NHS Point of Care Testing audience, build familiarity and take away leads. Currently confirmed to be taking part on the day is Abbott. Click on their logo for further details.
