Seminar - 19/09 - Microfluidics and process miniaturization for healthcare applications
MEDVIA, Sirris and the Science Park are hosting a free seminar on microfluidics and process miniaturization for healthcare and life science applications. The seminar at the Science Park is scheduled for September 19, 2023.
Miniaturizing a testing or sample preparation process into a dedicated microfluidic device (lab-on-a-chip) drastically reduces operating costs and the quantities of sample and reagents required, not to mention the waste generated. At the same time, it offers much faster results with greater accuracy.
Combined with smart flow, thermal control and accurate detection techniques, the miniaturized process is fully automated. This means it can be operated by a non-expert directly at the point of need, enabling immediate action based on the results.
Microfluidics technology is applicable to sectors as diverse as chemistry, pharmaceuticals, agri-food, life sciences and medical diagnostics. In this seminar, Sirris will demonstrate the techniques available in Belgium to develop a fully dedicated device specifically for your application and ready for mass production.
Who should attend?
- Companies with an interest in miniaturizing a process onto a lab-on-chip device
- Injection molding and mold maker companies interested in micromanufacturing
- Product development companies interested in microfluidics
