Bringing together researchers and industry participants from both academia and industry, this conference will discuss the innovative developments in Lab-on-a-Chip (LOAC), Microfluidics, and Microarrays Spaces.

Presentations will explore the latest advances in LOAC, Microfluidics and Microarrays. 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.

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 also have access to the co-located Point-of-Care Diagnostics World Congress and Exosomes & Single Cell Analysis Summit providing ample opportunities for networking and ensuring a very cost-effective trip.

As Part of Registration, Delegates Receive Access to All Three Conference Tracks so as to Mix-and-Match Tracks, Topics, and Presentations.

The Exhibit Hall is Co-Located with the Conference Tracks in the Conference Center for Excellent Networking Opportunities [Collaboration Opportunities, Sales Opportunities for Vendors, as well as Business Development and Partnering Opportunities].
