The twenty-fifth biennial congress of the International Society for Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH), combined with the annual meeting of its Scientific and Standardization Committee (SSC), was held in Toronto (Canada) from 20 to 25 June 2015.

It attracted over 7500 attendees, providing them the opportunity to exchange ideas and learn about and share breakthroughs in the field of haemostasis-related diseases, including their diagnosis and treatment, and patient management. As usual, the programme was extremely rich, with a multitude of sessions, grouped into themes, held in parallel. The conference’s 2700 poster presentations were displayed in daily dedicated sessions, including a number of Stago’s major projects from recent months.

Many of the delegates visited the trade show, to meet with exhibitors from the pharmaceutical and diagnostics industries. The large Stago booth, extending over more than 200 m², was very popular, and included presentations of our very latest analysers: STA Compact Max®, STA R Max®, STGenesia®, with scientific advances presented at the edge of a scientific corner devoted to Stago’s innovative product ranges (FM – D-Di – FDP, microparticles, determination of anticoagulant and antiplatelet drug activity, etc.).

Our Haemoscore and iHemostasis applications were also showcased, as was the latest booklet from the “Practical Manual” series, hot off the press, devoted to antiphospholipid syndrome.

With Stago having recently established a subsidiary in Canada, the conference’s host nation, a corner was set aside specifically for our Canadian customers.

Finally, Stago had the pleasure of hosting a unique evening reception for our customers and brand community at Ripley’s Aquarium, Toronto. This event was a great success, thanks in no small part to the congenial relationships we enjoy with our guests.

The ISTH congress is always a highlight of the Haemostasis calendar, and this 25th edition was no exception in terms of success and its importance in our professional world.

The next SSC meeting will take place in May 2016, in Montpellier, France. The next ISTH congress will be held in Berlin in 2017.
