ISFA – E-ISFA 2021 Virtual congress

March 17–20, 2021

Meet us at the virtual joint congress of ISFA and E-ISFA 

This year, the International Society for Apheresis (ISFA) and the European Group – International Society for Apheresis e.V. (E-ISFA) join forces to organize a virtual meeting dedicated to the international apheresis community. This first joint congress of ISFA and E-ISFA will highlight the recent advances in apheresis-based treatments, including new challenges that have arisen during the ongoing pandemic.

We are pleased to contribute to the ISFA – E-ISFA 2021 scientific program with our lunch symposium and session for nurses. The former will present the diverse value of immunoadsorption from AMR to allergy treatment. The latter will demonstrate easy and efficient immunoadsorption using the LIFE 21® apheresis unit.
