Over 20,000 laboratory medicine and healthcare professionals attended the 68th Annual Meeting and Expo. The meeting focused on advances in medical testing that will help patients get more accurate diagnosis and effective treatment. CTK was proud to continue its tradition of attending the Expo.
As you can imagine, Zika, Chagas, and Chikungunya were popular topics, and we learned in one of the symposiums that 80% of patients infected by Zika virus have no symptoms. This poses several challenges for clinicians enhancing the need for fast and cost-effective screening and diagnostic options.

Two members of our California-based CTK team generated a lot of interest from their poster session this year at AACC. Dr. Daming Shan, Director of R& D and Production, and Dr. Ryen MacDonald, Associate Product Manager presented “Recombinant chimeric IgG/IgM mouse-human antibodies for the manufacture of calibrators and controls for diagnostic test kits.” This is important because the traditional controls and calibrators are developed from infection specific positive patient specimens, which in many cases are difficult to obtain and to ship.
The CTK exhibit booth was a positive experience for our staff and visitors.
At AACC, CTK introduced ALTA ELISA instruments. These companion instruments exemplify CTK’s continued efforts meeting customer’s needs of a wider variety of diagnostic technologies.
CTK was pleased to present Ben Uzor an award for being our distributor for over 10 years! It was a surprise and an honor!
will we see you next year in our hometown of San Diego for the 2017 69th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo from July 30–August 3?
