Business based on Printed Intelligence is taking off in many industries. The key enablers of these new products are progressing fast. How can you get started and where can you find the partners to realize your ideas?

PrintoCent – an international cluster of 40 companies – has been boosting commercialization of Printed Intelligence for over 10 years and PrintoCent members have brought many ground-breaking printed, hybrid and integrated solutions to the market. Today, Printed Electronics Systems, Structural Electronics in glass, plastics and laminates, and Rapid Diagnostics are spreading to a wide range of end applications in  automotive, interior design, premium consumer goods, packaging, health and wellness – to name a few.

With seven webinar sessions in January-March 2021 the PrintoCent Community showcases a wide range of products, processes and materials, which enable new smarter next gen products and how to produce them. This is your chance to connect directly with the experts. The sessions are free, but hurry! Each live webinar session is limited to 500 participants.

Welcome to the sixth session of our second webinar series, on Tuesday March 9th at 09:00 AM – 10.30 AM (CET)

Session 6 on Future of Rapid Diagnostics


The on-going COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the immense value of rapid diagnostics. Large global populations have experienced first-hand the hurdles and distresses of cumbersome testing procedures. With the global spotlight on the topic, now is an opportune time to address rapid diagnostics more broadly within global health care systems. Already before this pandemic health care systems around the world were facing growing pressures to establish more timely and cost-effective means to monitoring and diagnosing patients’ health, not only as a means to react to health epidemics, but a means to control and pre-emptively address major on-going health concerns (obesity, diabetes, malaria, among others).

The world needs fast point of care tests which are fluently adapted to new viruses and are scalable to high volume manufacturing plus are usable in the field, in setting such as travellers in borders, small health care stations, schools, nursing homes, etc. and further on even in homes without healthcare professionals. Printed intelligence offers new tools to tackle these needs and research seeks to create the key enablers to new user friendly, mass deployable, and cost effective ways to carry out health testing..

Join this webinar session to learn about Jabil`s perspective how to manage quality in innovative medical device developments, about Biomensio`s new method for multianalyte biosensing, how Ginolis is realizing automation for medical device assembly, and about on-going research topics on extracellular vesicle purification and on non-invasive saliva tests for Covid-19.
