Introduction<br />

On behalf <strong>of</strong> the organizing committee it is our great pleasure to invite you for<br />

the 4 th <strong>Euregio</strong> <strong>Conference</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Clinical</strong> <strong>Chemistry</strong> <strong>and</strong> <strong>Laboratory</strong> Medicine.<br />

After three successful <strong>Euregio</strong> conferences, alternately organized by one <strong>of</strong> the<br />

university hospitals <strong>of</strong> Maastricht-Liège-Aachen, we decided to start a new<br />

cycle <strong>of</strong> conferences. The 4 th <strong>Euregio</strong> conference will be organized by the<br />

University Hospital <strong>of</strong> Maastricht on March, 14 th in Maastricht. The conferences<br />

give us the opportunity to inform each other upon scientific activities at the<br />

different sites <strong>and</strong> have become an important educational activity.<br />

We again hope to <strong>of</strong>fer an interesting program.<br />

The program in three sessions is focused on point <strong>of</strong> care testing, metabolic<br />

disease <strong>and</strong> finally a session on test st<strong>and</strong>ardization <strong>and</strong> harmonization.<br />

We are sure that all participants will benefit from the academic exchanges <strong>and</strong><br />

personal contacts. We are looking forward to seeing you in Maastricht.<br />

We wish you a fruitful <strong>and</strong> enjoyable day in Maastricht.<br />
