The convergence of quantum technologies, digitalization, additive manufacturing, machine learning, and 3D modeling is upon us. Quantum imaging technologies will enable development of the world’s most advanced functional medical devices. These offer a wider range of functionality combined with precise, safer and less invasive diagnostics. This meeting will engage with end-users who are at the leading edge of low light imaging and time-gated spectroscopy for tissue imaging and highly-accurate disease diagnostics.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships. 

Watch us LIVE on YouTube

These online technology meetings take place in Zoom with a limited group of people. If you would like to attend the meeting, please register below. There are limited seats and we allow only one person per company, but all our online technology meetings can be viewed LIVE on YouTube or be viewed afterwards if you have missed it.
