SDiPath Annual Meeting + Industry Fair

January 16 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Final Agenda available here!

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to welcome our guest speaker Professor Dr. med. Kurt Zatloukal, from the Medical University of Graz, who will speak on digital pathology and biobanking.

Additionally, as digital pathology is moving forward – many of us are interested but do not know which companies are on the market and what solutions they provide.

At the request of our members, SDiPath has therefore arranged an industry fair where the providers of digital pathology solutions present their products in 15 min. talks. This will give all interested a broad overview on the current opportunities for setting up a digital pathology system.

The industry fair will take place during the annual meeting of the SDiPath:

Thursday, January 16th 2020

Mikroskopie Hörsaal, Institute of Pathology University of Bern

So far, the following companies have confirmed their attendance (in alphabetical order):

Fuji, Hamamatsu, Huron, Inspirata, Leica, Philips, Roche, Sectra, Sysmex/3DHistech, Telemis, Tribvn
