What role does technology play in our ability to detect disease and understand the microscopic world? The American Society for Microbiology, the world's largest life science membership organization, is giving you the chance to see the diagnostic machines that help hospitals identify diseases and learn about new tools that help scientists explore the unseen microbial world.

Join us at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center for a special access tour of the exhibitor floor at the Society’s General Meeting, followed by a discussion about the role of technology in discovery. Afterward, you can participate in a cash-bar reception with meeting participants.
