29 Jul Keton scientific Conference 2019
The inaugural Keton scientific Conference was held at Pride Inn Westlands Nairobi on the 25th and 26th July 2019.
The two-day event was packed with presentations and panel discussions. The theme for this year’s conference was Quality Laboratory Diagnosis for improved Patients outcome.
The Scientific Conference attracted a hall packed by participants from all areas in the medical field and it was a successful and impactful conference for all the attendees.
Booths and Exhibitions formed an integral part of the conference linking the participants to vendors, manufacturers of medical equipment and products, External Quality Assessment, Calibration, and Third-Party Controls products and services.
The presenters handled their presentations effectively and the participants had the chance to raise their questions and be responded to in the panel discussion sessions which took place after 2-3 sub topical presentation.
ESfEQA-Keton EQA awards was also launched during the conference and the aim is to award the best performing laboratories that participate in Keton EQA-ESfEQA programmes.
