Since 2008, the event series ΣYSTEMS INTEGRATION of the IVAM Microtechnology Network has regularly offered manufacturers and users the opportunity to exchange information on the intelligent use of microtechnologies.
Mobile diagnostics, chemical production in microreactors and organ-on-a-chip
On October 9, 2019, the symposium in Manchester will be devoted to the topic "Microfluidics in Industry and Life". Microfluidics is playing an increasingly important role in industry and everyday applications. The conference will highlight the importance of microfluidic products for automated processes in chemistry, biotechnology and medicine. Manufacturers and users will present and discuss new technologies and applications. The lectures will cover topics such as mobile diagnostics, chemical production in microreactors or organ-on-a-chip.
The event takes place in cooperation with the host Microsystems UK, one of the leading manufacturers of microfluidic components made by injection molding. On the day before the conference there will be an opportunity to visit Microsystems’ production in Warrington.
Microfluidics plays an increasingly important role
The presentations are structured in three sessions:
1. Technologies for Microfluidic Components Production
2. Equipment with Microfluidic Components
3. Applications for Microfluidic Components
The symposium will give an overview on technological possibilities and current applications.
It will also address unsolved issues and new research results. The speakers come from different industrial areas and are looking forward to a discussion with the participants about needs and requirements for new applications in new markets. The seminar will help to understand challenges and to find solutions. The networking options during breaks like lunch and dinner provide an ideal framework to start co-operations between the participants.
The event is important for developers and manufacturers of microfluidic components and systems, users of microfluidic solutions or people who are interested in the optimization of chemical production processes by microreactors, who develop mobile, diagnostic or therapeutic devices, or who are active in researching and developing new biotechnological processes.
