MSACL 2014 US
6th Annual Conference & Exhibits
San Diego, CA
March 1-5, 2014
The MSACL Conference provides a forum for discussion of developments in the clinical application of mass spectrometry. While immunoassay methods have dominated clinical analyses, mass spectrometric methods are now providing analytical results more rapidly and with less-expense. MSACL brings together experts in the field with those driven to explore and understand clinical mass spectrometry, with the goal of facilitating mass spectrometry's adoption as a health care tool and accelerating the realization of improved patient care and reduced health care costs.
MSACL's mission is educational and the organization provides several levels of Travel Awards to support conference attendance:
It's the abstracts that make the meeting. Are you working in clinical mass spectrometry and have compelling results that you want to present at the most focused clinical mass spec meeting in the world? Submit your abstract for the MSACL Conference.
MSACL focuses on topics including pain management, microbiology, chemistry/toxicology, proteomics, metabolomics, tissue imaging, and regulations and standards. A comprehensive list is below. Let us know if there is another topic area that you think should be added.
Expected Topics for MSACL 2014
*Note: Abstracts are solicited for the topics listed below, however, if no abstracts are submitted and accepted on any given topic then it will not be covered at the conference.
At the conclusion of this activity, the participants should be able to:
The target audience for this program includes pathologists, clinical laboratory directors and scientists, mass spectrometry and automated sample processing providers as well as laboratory diagnostic providers. This program will be beneficial to healthcare administrators, laboratory quality control and standards scientists, as well as those responsible for implementation of clinical analyses for emergency response due to terrorism or accident.
The content of this education program was determined by rigorous assessment of educational need and includes surveys, program feedback, expert faculty assessment, literature review and new laboratory knowledge. The clinical application of mass spectrometry has suddenly emerged in a very forceful and dynamic manner. This meeting will be critical to share emerging analytical information and work concerning regulations and standards. These developments will enable clinical laboratories to provide higher quality results, more rapidly and for lower overall cost to the patient and the healthcare system.
