Antibiotic resistance is rising to dangerously ​high levels in all parts of the world.
A growing number of infections – such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, gonorrhoea, and salmonellosis – are becoming harder to treat as the antibiotics used to treat them become less effective. Antibiotic resistance leads to longer hospital stays, higher medical costs and increased mortality.
Tackling antibiotic resistance has become a high priority and it is very important to implement preventive processes now.

Analis is proud to invite you to the CLINICAL MICROBIOLOGY SYMPOSIUM that will be held in :

Living Tomorrow, Indringingsweg 1, 1800 Vilvoorde
on 4 October 2019 from 9.30 am to 3.30 pm​.

The main goal is to give you the keys to implement EUCAST guidelines and to improve all aspects of clinical microbiology in the hospital.

Why attend our conference  ?​
This meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss the advanced theoretical and practical aspects of clinical microbiology in healthcare with a panel of experts during the walking lunch. It also gives you access to innovation and new technologies in clinical and diagnostic microbiology.

Target Audience :
This meeting is intended for all clinical biologists, clinical laboratory managers, microbiologists, hospital hygienists, antibiotic prescribers and experts in clinical microbiology, health care, virology and epidemiology.
