Lab-on-a-Chip & Microarray World Congress

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.

Agenda Topics:
- Applications of Microfluidics/LOAC as Biosensors, For Clinical Utilization in Disease Monitoring, Diagnostics
