Scope:

This symposium aims to bring together scientists, engineers and educators to share their latest research in lab-on-a-chip technologies and applications in biology, chemistry, materials and engineering. It has three sessions (1) Lab on a chip/microfluidics for biology, (2) Microfluidics for sensing and diagnostics (3) Microfabrication and device development and (4) Microfluidics for chemistry and materials development.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

  • DNA, protein and cell analysis
  • Next generation sequencing
  • Organ on a chip and disease modelling
  • Sample preprocessing/concentration
  • Microflows & nanoflows and control techniques
  • Device integration,
  • Detection techniques,
  • Chem.- and bio-reactor,
  • Material synthesis and analysis,
  • Other application of lab on a chip techniques.
