Microfluidics-enabled Products: Development, Manufacturing, Applications and Commercialisation Strategies

Held in conjunction with Lab-on-a-Chip & Microfluidics 2017

09 May 2017, at 13:00 in Holiday Inn City Centre, Munich, Germany


Who Should Attend?

The course will provide a broad overview of microfluidics as an enabling technology for new product development in diagnostics and the life sciences. Emphasis is put on the complete development process for commercial microfluidics-enabled products, covering aspects of development strategies, manufacturing technologies, application cases, markets as well as aspects of commercialisation. The course is suitable for scientists, technicians, engineers but also business developers who would like to develop a deeper understanding of microfluidics as a key technology for the development of new product in a broad range of markets.

Learning Objectives

Understand the role of microfluidics technology in the development of new products.
