Opening / Introduction
Our Conference on Advanced Healthcare Technologies is coming up and you are kindly invited to book the date in your calendar:
11:40 – 17:50 CEST (online event)
organized by SGP Biodynamics
Participation in the event is free of charge, but registration is required
In our aim to connect the theoretical and the practical, we will give the word to experts who will present how innovations can be implemented in current methodology and how particular pieces of technology and research progress can be game-changers with new levels of precision and reliability.
Over the last 15 years, there has been great progress in combating HIV. Antiretroviral therapy (ART) is one of the most effective tools used against the virus. Ensuring access to the best ART regimens can be challenging.
Bringing the HIV epidemic under control is within reach, but smart, targeted approaches are needed to break the cycle of infection. HIV is not only a clinical challenge, but also a medico-social, moral and economic problem. In this regard, prevention is a financially beneficial method for addressing the devastating impact HIV has on individuals and society. Research progress, diagnostic solutions, treatment advancement, patient’s involvement and society engagements are effective steps for success in the fight against HIV.
There can be no doubt that the face of diagnostics and drug discovery has changed beyond recognition over the last decade. Advances in the techniques of molecular analysis, and the ever-increasing use of automation, especially high throughput approaches, have paved the way for new, rapid and more reliable diagnostics tests.
However, a number of problems remain, namely, inequity in the access and coverage of available services, lax regulations on the quality of health services in general and of genetic services in particular. It is expected that the continued work of medical genetics will lead to an improvement in the access and quality of genetic and healthcare services overall. Progress and discoveries in the field of human genetics/ genomics can provide powerful new approaches to understanding the development of diseases, to their reliable diagnostics and to creating new strategies for their prevention and treatment.
Antibiotic resistance has become an imminent global public health threat and multiple studies have identified resistant bacteria and detected resistance genes in environmental samples. Water resulting from human activities is collected at wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), turning them into unintentional collection points for antimicrobial drugs, antibiotic-resistant bacteria (ARB) and resistance genes (ARG).
Continuous and systematic monitoring of wastewater may provide early warning signs and will potentially identify infectious particles and ARB, thus alerting public health officials on the ongoing or future disease outbreaks.
All times are in Central European Summer Time (CEST) / UTC+2

The main strength of SGP Biodynamics Ltd. is Molecular biology. Molecular diagnostics drastically improves the speed and accuracy of modern medicine and is increasingly present as a routine diagnostic method in clinical laboratories. There are extremely flexible, sensitive and specific products for molecular biology – a useful tool in the arsenal of human diagnostics.
Our vision is to connect science with lab practice by implementing data into action so as to result in more precise completion of life science solutions and therefore improve lab working methods.
