Holger Becker's Biography

Holger Becker, Chief Scientific Officer, Microfluidic ChipShop GmbH

Dr. Holger Becker is co-founder and CSO of microfluidic ChipShop GmbH. He obtained physics degrees from the University of Western Australia/Perth and the University of Heidelberg. He started to work on miniaturized systems for chemical analysis during his PhD-thesis at Heidelberg university, where he obtained his PhD in 1995. Between 1995 and 1997 he was a Research Associate at Imperial College with Prof. Andreas Manz. In 1998 he joined Jenoptik Mikrotechnik GmbH. Since then, he founded and led several companies in the field of microsystem technologies in medicine and the life sciences. He lead the Industry Group of the German Physical Society between 2004 and 2009 and is Conference Chair for the SPIE "Microfluidics, BioMEMS and Medical Microsystems" conference as well as acting as regular reviewer of project proposals on national and EU level and for several journals devoted to microsystem technologies.

Many applications in the life sciences use cells or particles. The use of microfluidics can greatly widen the spectrum of these applications by using unique techniques such as dielectrophoresis for cell assembly, particle sorting by Dean forces or transport phenomena of magnetic beads in microstructures. In this paper, we will present various examples of applications realized in microfluidic devices ranging from drug discovery to molecular diagnostics. Typical challenges in miniaturization and strategies to overcome these problems in product development will be discussed.
