About this Product: 

The course will provide a broad overview of microfluidics as an enabling technology for point-of-care diagnostics. The course is constructed to provide a comprehensive overview of the field, starting with an introduction to microfluidics and its principles. Different manufacturing options will be discussed. Emphasis is put on the complete development process for commercial microfluidics-enabled POC-products, covering aspects of development strategies, application cases, markets as well as aspects of commercialization. The course covers the existing product landscape as well as exemplary disease cases with examples from molecular and immunodiagnostics. The course is suitable for scientists, technicians, engineers but also business developers who would like to develop a deeper understanding of microfluidics as a key technology for the development of new product in the POC markets.

 HolgerBeckerHolger Becker, Ph.D., Founder & CSO, microfluidic ChipShop GmbH

Dr Holger Becker is co-founder and CSO of microfluidic ChipShop GmbH. He obtained physics degrees from the University of Western Australia/Perth and the University of Heidelberg. He started to work on miniaturized systems for chemical analysis during his PhD thesis at Heidelberg University, where he obtained his PhD in 1995. Between 1995 and 1997 he was a Research Associate at Imperial College with Prof. Andreas Manz. In 1998 he joined Jenoptik Mikrotechnik GmbH. Since then, he founded and led several companies in the field of microsystem technologies in medicine and the life sciences. He was nominated for the German Founders Prize in 2004. He lead the Industry Group of the German Physical Society between 2004 and 2009, was co-chair of MicroTAS 2013, and is the current chair of the SPIE ‘‘Microfluidics, BioMEMS and Medical Microsystems’’ conference. He serves on the Editorial Board of “Lab-on-a-Chip” as well as acting as a regular reviewer of project proposals on a national and international level.

About the Conference: 

The Next Generation Dx Summit showcases advances in personalized medicine through a comprehensive program encompassing companion diagnostics, infectious disease, cancer molecular markers, point-of-care, inherited disorders, cell-free DNA, commercialization, NGS-based assays in the clinical setting and single-cell sequencing. This event has become the meeting place for major players in the expanding arena of diagnostics and highlights key components of their successful adoption in the clinic and advancement to the market.
