Lab-on-a-Chip Workshop

Assay Automation Based on Centrifugal Microfluidics

Venue: Tagungscenter ETAGE
Emmy-Noether-Straße 2, 79110 Freiburg
Thursday, October 31
Time: 14:15 - 17:15

Lab-on-a-Chip technology provides solutions for fully integrated liquid handling, enabling the microfluidic automation, miniaturisation, and massive parallelisation of biochemical assays. It can be used for point-of-care analysis, e.g. whenever quick results of blood testing is eminent because a patient is in need of immediate medication.

The Lab-on-a-Chip group at HSG-IMIT in Freiburg, working in a close cooperation with the Laboratory for MEMS Applications at IMTEK - University of Freiburg, is offering a workshop addressed to R&D engineers and decision makers at companies active in point-of-care diagnostics.

Workshop Outline

The Workshop will be arranged in three sessions focussing on two centrifugal microfluic platforms for integration and implementation of diagnostic assays: The first session will give an overview on available technologies and unit operations on the LabTube platform and the LabDisk platform. In the second session, applications automated by the afore mentioned platforms such as disease detection and quality control of drinking water will be presented and discussed. This part concludes with an introduction to the Lab-on-a-Chip Design- & Foundry Service. The last session shows how these applications work.

Your attendence is free. We kindly ask for registration. pdf.gif See flyer with detailed agenda.
