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.

Practically all microfluidic systems contain a detection module as a central system component. For many years, fluorescence has been the gold standard, both due to its sensitivity as well as versatility. In recent years however, alternative detection methods have been emerging which offer different approaches especially for microfluidic systems with applications in point-of-care diagnostics. In this presentation, we will focus on two approaches: a) the integration of silicon photonic devices (so-called PICs) which utilize the semiconductor fabrication methods for silicon but make use of the optical properties of silicon instead of its electronic functionalities and b) the use of ink-jet printed integrated photonic elements such as light-sources and detectors which can be directly integrated in a disposable microfluidic cartridge.
