Session 1: Technological developments in the IVD world that effect all our lives
Dr. Andreas F. Stange
Vice President MHS global IVD, TÜV SÜD Japan Ltd.
Introduction to the rapid technological developments in in-vitro-diagnostic field.
Session 2: IVD is Key for Precision Medicine
Mr. Tsujimoto Kenji
Executive Vice President, Technology Strategy at Sysmex Corporation
The importance of the precision medicine is dramatically growing. Since the release of the guideline from FDA, a number of companion diagnostics (CDx), which can guide therapy selection, have been approved globally.
Furthermore, one of the latest progress is the fact that NGS (next generation sequencing)-based assay is moving into the clinical space from research. For example, the Japanese government takes an initiative to realize “genomic medicine” for, but not limited to, patients with cancer.
We will see more progress in the future, including digital medicine. In this session, the dynamics of precision medicine, now and future, will be presented as well as contributions of in vitro diagnostics (IVD) with some examples of Sysmex R&D.
