4BIO: Microfluidics Congress Synopsis

Microfluidics continues to be an exciting and rapidly developing area in the life sciences with a continually expanding range of applications. As technologies and strategies continue to mature, this congress brings together experts in academia and industry to network and share ideas.

Attracting experts working in microfluidic development and application, including point-of-care diagnostics, single cell analysis, lab-on-a-chip applications, droplet microfluidics and next generation microfluidics, the conference will examine the latest developments in the technologies and techniques being used for progressing medical research in areas as disease monitoring, diagnostics and organ-on-a-chip. This interactive meeting will allow you to keep up to date with the cutting edge of research and provides the opportunity to make connections with academics, investors and businesses in your field.

What our delegates say about the conference

Poster session organisation

The poster session was handled better than at some competitive meetings.

Michael Shuler

Samuel B. Eckert Professor of Engineering, Cornell University and CEO/President of Hesperos, Inc., Orlando, FL, USA

Access to co-located meetings

The access to both microfluidics and PCR content was extremely valuable to me since my research involved both topics.


Charles Cartier

Research Assistant, Department of Chemical Engineering, The Pennsylvania State University

Networking and collaboration

The networking allowed more in-depth discussion resulting in collaborations cross disciplines.

Carolyn Ren

Professor, Canada Research Chair in Droplet Microfluidics and Lab-on-a-Chip Technology, Department of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering, University of Waterloo, Canada

Leading industry technologies

There was a good mix between congress topics, in microfluidics and qPCR in particular, which gelled well. I also liked the presence of a lot of commercial displays show casing the leading industry technologies.

Pat Walsh

Lecturer, Stoke Laboratories
