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.

In addition to the well established optical detection methods, a recent development in lab-on-a-chip technology is the increased use of sensor technology for the detection of analytes in a microfluidic system. These sensors can range from relatively simple electrochemical sensors to electronically read-out microarrays or highly integrated nano-electrode sensors with on-chip signal processing capabilities. These sensors require innovative technological solutions for their integration into a microfluidic cartridge. We will present solutions for such integrated systems for the detection of biomarkers, proteins and nucleic acids for applications in rapid infectious disease identification or drug efficacy monitoring.
