Two supporting programs and event on medical quality management and medical labs

The 1st Annual Conference on Quality Manager of Sinopharm 2020, a supporting program of labtech China 2020, addresses issues including the medical policy changes in 2020, and the responsibilities of pharmaceutical quality managers in the new situation. More than 10 leading experts and enterprises representatives were invited to give talks about the new directions and strategies in pharmaceutical quality management. The speakers include state-level inspectors, CFDI drug inspectors, and representatives from Suzhou Kintor, Xiamen Amoytop, Shanghai Food and Drug Administration, and Simcere Group.

To improve laboratory operation efficiency and construction quality, another supporting program, the Future Medical Laboratory Development and Innovation Summit, under the themes of "New Trends in Hospital Construction and Laboratory Development in the Post-Covid-19 Era" and "Innovative Development and Operation of Medical Laboratories", discuss the current status and future development of medical laboratory, especially the integrated construction of laboratory systems, the application of new materials and new technologies, as well as the operation and maintenance management of laboratories. The forum shared ideas on the characteristics and advantages, difficulties and challenges of laboratory construction, and aims to promote the new development of medical laboratories.

The exclusive advanced seminar for laboratory management and technical personnel is a professional training course sponsored by the Shanghai Institute of Quality and Standardization. The know-how feast provided by the "Laboratory Strategies in Response to the Covid-19 Epidemic" provides update information on laboratory accreditation policies, the strategic options of the testing agencies amid the Covid-19 epidemic, and the technical lab practices amid the Covid-19 epidemic, etc. the seminar aims to promote the healthy and sustainable development of laboratory quality and standardized management.

Innovative lab technology and products in immersive future lab spaces

labtech China 2020 offers over 2,000 sqm of Live Labs, real-scenario laboratories constructed in the exhibition halls. A number of labs, the Smart Live Lab, Life Science Live Lab, Innovative Medicine Live Lab, High-tech Innovation Lab , P3 Lab, Food Safety Live Lab and Environmental Monitory Live Lab are built by leading lab designing and planning enterprises, e.g. Hanguang, WALDNER, UFU, Daxpro, Nori and Kebei. Equipped with the most popular lab technology and automation equipment, including instruments and equipment, software, service solutions and lab construction plans, the Live Labs provides an immersive space where visitors may have a glimpse of the future labs that are both humane and multi-functional.

Moreover, labtech China constructed a new 600-square-meter Clinical Lab, focusing on the three themes of tumor clinical treatment and transformation, clinical diagnosis and research of Covid-19, and new drug and vaccine research and development. Innovative products and high-end technologies from Chinese and foreign exhibitors presented an all-round display of the cutting-edge solutions offered by the life sciences and diagnostics industries. The "2020 Translational Medicine Innovation Technology Forum" featured the latest research findings and cutting-edge technologies shared by well-known experts. The forum provides a high-quality academic platform for industry-university-research exchanges, and promotes the transformation between fundamental science and clinical application.

labtech China 2020 created a series of special anti-epidemic laboratories, including the Huoyan laboratory (air dome version), Mobile cabin biosafety laboratory, and Container plant factory. The new "Modular Inflatable Membrane Negative Pressure Isolation Ward" jointly developed by Tongji University and Dongfang Hospital was released, in addition to the "Huo Yan (Fire Eye)" laboratory (air dome version). The mobile cabin biosafety laboratory designed by the Smart Environment Technology Team of Tongji University housed in a 20-foot high container also made a grand appearance at Hall E7. Meanwhile, the modular Intelligent Plant Factory developed and designed by the team uses soilless planting to grow vegetables inside the container. Testing result shows that it is a plausible way to remove heavy metal residues in vegetables. The Integrated Nucleic Acid Testing Laboratory developed by Dynaflow independently is fit for mass nucleic acid testing and contributed much to the Covid-19 control.

Continue the New Lab Exhibition Model Serves the Entire Scientific Research Ecology and the Full Life Cycle of Labs

A total of 75 speeches, and more than 10 live demos and concurrent events were held to discuss global laboratory innovation and development trends, and predict the new opportunities and new challenges for future laboratories in 2030. Over 2,000 square meters of Live Labs, Clinical Lab, and Anti-Covid-19 Laboratory connected the cutting-edge technologies with the exhibited products, providing opportunities for efficient communication between the participants and exhibitors. Inheriting the new model of "exhibition + conference" initiated by labtech China in 2019, the congress featured a multi-dimensional, all-round and full lifecycle services that range from laboratory construction, furniture, HVAC, cleanliness, to storage, instruments, safety, and intelligent technology.
