Hosted by the Association for Clinical Biochemistry and Laboratory Medicine (ACB) and held annually since its inception in 2002, Frontiers in Laboratory Medicine (FiLM) takes place from Tuesday 29th to Wednesday 30th January in Birmingham, UK and brings together leading domestic and international figures from pathology and diagnostics to discuss the key challenges impacting, and opportunities for advancing, laboratory medicine today. Reflecting the critical role many now feel digital pathology has to play in enabling innovation in laboratory medicine, Inspirata is delighted to have been invited by the ACB to contribute to the 2019 FiLM programme.
While the team at Inspirata will be on-hand to provide interactive solution demonstrations throughout the two-day meeting, Inspirata’s General Manager for Europe, Tim Wing, will also be delivering a lunchtime workshop on digital pathology as part of the official FiLM agenda. With a nod to FiLM’s thematic focus for 2019 of ‘getting things right first time’, Tim’s session will explore why concentrating on the workflow when clinical laboratories go digital represents the most efficient way to reconcile the competing challenges of personnel shortages in NHS labs and realising the untold potential benefit of new image analysis and digital diagnostic innovation.
With Inspirata’s attendance at FiLM marking the one-year anniversary of its acquisition of Omnyx from GE Healthcare which led to the setup of European operations, Tim and the team look forward to spending time with delegates and showcasing to those interested the many exciting enhancements to its digital pathology and cancer informatics proposition released in the busy twelve months since.
Inspirata’s workshop entitled ‘Digital Pathology – Focus on the Workflow’ will be taking place in the Faraday Room on Tuesday 29th January at 1pm.
