2nd Microfluidics Congress: USA


Plus workshops including: Microfluidics and lab-on-a-chip technologies for commercial product development: strategies, technologies, markets and applications

To foster a collegiate atmosphere and enable the widest possible attendance, the main conference program on July 25-26, is free* to attend.

You can also enhance your itinerary with paid for pre & post event workshops, suitable if you are seeking a deeper understanding of a specific issue. So before the Microfluidics Congress: USA Holger Becker Co-Founder and CSO, microfluidic ChipShop GmbH, will lead a 4 hour workshop on Lab-on-a-Chip (LOC) technologies as an enabling technology for new product development in diagnostics and the life sciences.

This conference is co-located with the qPCR & Digital PCR Congress and NGS Tech & Applications Congress.

You are cordially invited to join our community of leading academics and scientists from biotechnology & pharmaceuticals organizations who are working to transform healthcare by harnessing the developments of these new and overlapping technologies.

  Join our Community Today!



Microfluidics is a rapidly developing area of research, and scientists are continually discovering the wide range of possibilities the technology can provide. At the       intersection of engineering, physics, chemistry, nanotechnology, and biotechnology, microfluidics is revolutionizing the way patients are diagnosed, monitored and treated,and is unlocking the potential for reduced reagent consumption and thus, cost.

The conference will examine the latest developments in the technologies and techniques being used for progressing medical research, as well as the challenges and future of microfluidics. 

Some of the topics to be covered:

  • Point-of-care diagnostics
  • Organ-on-a-chip
  • Droplet microfluidics
  • Microfabrication
  • Isolation and analysis of CTCs
  • 3D printing of microfluidic devices
  • Single-cell analysis
  • Commercialization and venture capitalism

Poster Presentations

Poster presentation sessions will take place in breaks and alongside the other breakout sessions of the conference. Your presentation will be displayed in a dedicated area, with the other accepted posters from industry and academic presenters.

We also issue a poster eBook to all attendees with your full abstract in and can share your poster as a PDF after the meeting if you desire (optional).

Whether looking for funding, employment opportunities or simply wanting to share your work with a like-minded and focused group, these are an excellent way to join the heart of this congress.

In order to present a poster at the forum you need to be registered as a delegate. Please note that there is limited space available and poster space is assigned on a first come first served basis (subject to checks and successful registration).

We charge an admin fee of $100 to industry delegates to present, that goes towards the shared cost of providing the poster presentation area and display boards, guides etc. This fee is waived for those representing academic institutions and not for profit organisations.

Submission instructions

We will require the form (downloadable below) to be submitted by the 7th of July. This is the formal deadline however space is another limiting factor so early application is recommended. Therefore please contact us with any questions you have as soon as possible.

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.
