GC Group, the leading clinical diagnostics group from South Korea, will participate in the 2022 edition of the IFCC WorldLab Congress as a platinum sponsor. GC Group through its four companies GC Labs, GC MS, GC Cell and GC Genome will highlight its testing services and products at an innovative airport-themed booth and offer insights through a series of talks looking at the future of lab medicine.
Held on 26-30 June 2022 at Coex Convention & Exhibition Center in Seoul, IFCC WorldLab Congress is the world’s most prestigious academic conference for the lab profession, attended by approximately 4,000 clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine experts from 100 countries to share the latest advances in clinical laboratory science and diagnostics technology.
At a booth, GC Group will be showing a one-stop diagnostic test service under the theme of ‘Journey to Healthy Life’, including sample collection, transportation, clinical diagnostics and results, all against a virtual backdrop of an airport journey, from check-in to boarding.
Designed to resemble the interior of an airport terminal, GC booth will also consist of exciting “experience zones” offering: a virtual reality tour of a GC Labs laboratory using Matterport technology; an opportunity to experience GCare Lipid of GC MS, a personal in-vitro diagnostic product that can measure cholesterol, triglycerides and more, and receive test results; and four types of POCT device and genetic analysis kits.
Leading global experts from academia and industry will furthermore share perspectives on laboratory medicine in healthcare through a series of academic seminars from 27-28 June 2022, of which GC Group will also be taking part.
During their academic seminar, GC Group will discuss themes that will include: diagnostics and testing beyond COVID-19 and the dynamics of an evolving market; AI-based genetic analysis technology; and the introduction of technology that begins commercialization: application of liquid biopsy of ADPS technology and biochemical testing of PCT.
Eun-Hee Lee, President of GC Labs, says: “I am pleased that GC Group will have the opportunity to widely publicise its capabilities and excellence in laboratory medicine as a platinum sponsor at IFCC, the world’s largest international conference in diagnostic testing. In particular, it is significant in that major GC group companies with their own specialised fields at each stage of the diagnostic test process gather to create various synergies and introduce total healthcare services. In addition, this academic congress will be a significant opportunity to share trends and outlooks on global laboratory medicine.”
