Welcome to the Select Biosciences, Inc. 9th Annual Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics World Congress 2017. Bringing together researchers and industry participants from both academia and industry, this established congress now in its 9th year, will discuss the latest innovations and developments in the Lab-on-a-Chip (LOAC) and Microfluidics fields.

Presentations will explore the latest advances in the Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics Fields. Focus at this conference will also be given to some of the many applications of Lab-on-a-Chip, from life science research, to taking diagnostics to the point-of-care/point-of-need and body-on-a-chip/organs-on-a-chip. We focus on LOAC device production technologies, novel designs/technologies for manufacture, as well as the key application areas for LOAC from research to diagnostics. There is an Extensive International Perspective at this Conference with Speakers, Poster Presenters, Sponsors, and Exhibitors from the US, Europe, and Asia/Pacific. Running alongside the conference will be an exhibition covering the latest technological advances and associated products and services from leading solution providers within this field from around the world.

Registered delegates will have full access to the co-located and concurrent conferences to mix-and-match presentations and maximize networking:
  • Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics: Emerging Themes, Technologies and Applications 2017
  • Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics: Techologies, Companies and Commercialization 2017
  • Point-of-Care Diagnostics, Global Health and Emerging Viral Diseases World Congress 2017
  • Biosecurity and Biosensors Summit 2017
The Exhibit Hall is Co-Located with the Conference Tracks in the Conference Center for Excellent Networking (Collaboration Opportunities, Sales Opportunities for Vendors, as well as Business Development and Partnering Opportunities).  Exhibit Hall is Open: October 2-4, 2017.
