The European Hematology Association (EHA) Congress is world’s most comprehensive European Hematology event of the year. The 2019 edition was the 24th EHA Annual Meeting and was organized at our backdoor in Amsterdam. More than 11,000 hematology professionals and hundreds of exhibitors were present. Exhibitors included pharmaceutical companies, medical suppliers, publishers, non-profit organizations, clinical diagnostic and research-based companies.

RR Mechatronics was present with a great booth providing information about the capabilities of the Lorrca and giving “live” Lorrca Oxygenscan demonstrations as well. Attendees from Pharma, Hospitals and Research institutions has visited our booth and have joined the demonstrations. For most of these visitors the ability to measure specific parameters to characterize, measure and monitor Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) was a real eye- opener. They realized no other technology has the ability to do this. Therefore, high interest was generated to include the Lorrca in research or (pre)clinical studies.
The poster that was presented by our collaborator from the University Medical Center Utrecht has generated a lot of attention as well. In addition to the their recently published paper about the Lorrca Oxygenscan they have shown that the Lorrca Oxygenscan provides useful biomarkers of clinical severity and treatment response, and may be essential in monitoring novel SCD treatments as part of a clinical trial.
One of the absolute highlights was the special organized Lorrca diner on a boat trip through the Amsterdam canals. During this diner we’ve hosted a nice mix of key persons from Pharma and Biotech companies but also clinicians and researchers.
In general, the EHA Conference was very successful, resulting in numerous quality leads and follow-up appointments. We’re looking already forward to our presence at the 61st American Society of Hematology (ASH) Conference that will be held in Orlando, Florida in December 2019.
