On 16 Feb 2023, ASLM’s LabCoP convened an Extended session about an ultra-sensitive rapid diagnostic test for malaria; a potential solution for accelerating malaria elimination and its role in surveillance. Presentations were made by Luis Gonzalez, Global Director, Medical and Scientific Affairs; Xavier Ding, Clinical Strategy Manager, Infectious Disease Emerging Markets; and Carlos Cardenas, Global Marketing Director, Digital Products, Infectious Disease Emerging Markets; all from Abbott.
