Opportunities for photonics in medical device manufacture: Industrial innovation with lasers in the medical sector
AILU's Medical Group is holding a half day meeting as part of the seminar series at the Photonex exhibition, on 16th October at Stoneleigh Park near Coventry.
This event is free to attend and since the seminar area is in the exhibition hall delegates will be able to drop in and out on the day.
There will be two sessions: one in the morning (11:00 – 12:40) addressing lasers for medicine and biophotonics devices; and one in the afternoon (14:15 – 15:35) on innovative products that will allow suppliers to highlight new developments. A networking opportunity with be available between the two sessions.
