In 2018, Laborama Expo promises to deliver another broad and exciting seminar programme. For the upcoming edition, we welcome a myriad of prominent speakers to host the seminars.

The following speakers will make their appearance in the Conference Room during Laborama Expo 2018:

  • Iwan De Koning - Janssen Pharmaceutica
  • Prof. Jan Tytgat - KULeuven
  • Prof. Peter Van Eenoo - UGent
  • Prof. Olivier Vandenberg - LHUB-ULB

All seminars will be held in the Conference Room in hall 1 and will be given in English.

Pre-registration for these seminars is not necessary, but please bear in mind that places are limited. Be sure to be there in time for the seminar of your choice !

The entire programme will soon become available on this page.

anti-doping analysis 2018



Prof. dr. ir. Peter Van Eenoo - UGent

Department of Clinical chemistry, microbiology and immunology




Anti-doping laboratories accredited by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) need to detect a broad range of prohibited substances present in low concentrations in biological matrices. To achieve this goal, chromatography-mass spectrometry methods and a range of immunological methods are being used.

In this presentation, an overview will be given how these laboratories achieve their goals and tackle the challenges they are confronted with. Additionally, the quality control measures implemented will be addressed.

New Laboratory Tools for Antimicrobial Resistance Challenges



Prof. Olivier Vandenberg - LHUB-ULB

Faculty of Medicine - Public Health School 




Olivier Vandenberg, MD, PhD is appointed Professor of Microbiology in the Public Health School and in the Faculty of Medicine of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB). In addition, he is currently member of the WHO Advisory Group on Integrated Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance (WHO-AGISAR). Most of his researches focus on emerging foodborne pathogens and antimicrobial resistance. Since 2000, he has supervised the consolidation of several microbiology laboratories in high and low resource settings. Besides this, he also collaborates with different manufacturers and research institutes in the development of new approaches for the diagnosis and control of infectious diseases.


New Laboratory Tools for Antimicrobial Resistance Challenges

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is currently considered as one of the greatest public health challenges of this century. Today, patients with suspected infections receive empirical treatment, often unguided by microbiology results, resulting in the overuse of antimicrobials, leading to the emergence of drug resistance and the rapidly decreasing inventory of effective antimicrobials. Emerging diagnostic technologies have the potential to improve this situation by fostering rapid and precise diagnosis and the early refinement of antibiotic therapy, making diagnosis central to the battle against AMR. This lecture discusses the advantages and limitations of new diagnostic tools in the diagnosis and control of AMR, with respect to cost and clinical utility.
