Poster Information




Abstracts will be available on-line only. Once available, a PDF of the abstracts can be downloaded and printed.

ePosters will be available on the AMP Annual Meeting & Expo mobile app under ePosters. 



All accepted abstracts (unless withdrawn by the official withdraw date) for the AMP Annual Meeting & Expo are embargoed until the first day of poster presentations at the Annual Meeting. The embargo means that the information contained in the abstract cannot be presented or published on any national or international forum (online or print) other than The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics (JMD) prior to publication of the abstract to the JMD.


    Each accepted abstract will be required to present a Printed Poster and upload an ePoster. Please see below for format requirements and general information.

    Required Elements of the poster are as follows:

    • Introduction: a brief discussion of the background or rationale of the study and/or the question addressed
    • Materials and Methods: the experimental approach, materials, and methods used in the study
    • Results: the data and results obtained in the study
    • Conclusions: the conclusions and/or implications of the results

    Including the Abstract is optional unless the scientific content has been altered since its submission. If substantive changes to the data and/or conclusions have been made since the abstract was submitted, the following must accompany the poster presentation:

    1. A clear notice in the poster content stating that the abstract has been revised since submission, and
    2. The revised abstract must either be printed on the poster itself or posted as a separate document on the poster board.
