During submission, select a "Scientific Track" that is most related to the topic of your abstract. The Scientific Committee reserves the right to determine the final track of your abstract.


·     Emerging technologies and laboratory medicine

·     Molecular diagnostics, genomics, bioinformatics and point-of-care technologies

·     Quality management systems, biosafety and biosecurity

·     Latest advances in the diagnosis of non-communicable diseases

·     Infectious diseases and public health

·     Regulation of medical laboratories

·     Public-private partnerships for advancing laboratory medicine

Abstract submissions will be processed by the BMSZ2023 Scientific Committee through a peer-review process. The number of abstracts accepted is limited to the slots available. Particular attention will be paid to the significance of the findings and the quality of the submitted paper. Abstracts should follow the prescribed structure, and deviations from that may lead to rejection. Ensure the correctness of the abstract submitted as BMSZ will not edit any submitted work.
