The BioTouch Experience at ACMG

The BioTouch Experience was a standout attraction at the Exhibit Hall during the week, drawing in many exciting visitors. Collaboration flourished as participants worked together on designing the next-generation kit and solving challenges related to temperature control and patient experience.

We shared insight on how our high-quality packaging, preconditioned and proactively monitored at every step, helps eliminate temperature excursions and maintain the temperature integrity of specimens for testing.

We described how our technology tracking solution provides real-time geolocation and temperature data for each package and includes alarms to notify us when a shipment is approaching the upper or lower limits of the required temperature range. This helps avoid costly disruptions to our clients.

Other interactive sessions took place throughout the event, including Challenge the Experts and Laboratory Diagnostic Challenges, where experts tackled pediatric, prenatal, and adult diagnostic dilemmas, further highlighting the complexity and importance of accurate genetic diagnosis and treatment.

Overall, ACMG 2024 in Toronto truly showcased the remarkable strides being made in medical genetics, underscoring the ongoing commitment to advancing knowledge, improving patient care, and driving innovation in the field. We are delighted to be at the forefront, providing state-of-the-art healthcare logistics solutions to propel such innovation!
