2nd Microfluidics Congress: USA-2017

July 24, 2017 - July 26, 2017

Global Engage is pleased to announce the Microfluidics Congress: USA, which will be held on July 24-26th, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Hilton Philadelphia City Avenue. There will also be pre-meeting training courses. For more information on the training courses, please see the end of this document. 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. Attracting experts working in all areas of microfluidics, 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. Should you be an expert in developing microfluidics technologies, or a scientist using microfluidics to further medical research, the conference will be an excellent opportunity to learn, share, discuss and engage with the most current microfluidics research and technology. During the two-day conference, there will be networking breaks to promote interaction with your peers, expert led case study presentations, and a dynamic exhibition room filled with technology providers showcasing their technologies and solution

This conference is co-located with the qPCR & Digital PCR Congress and NGS and Clinical Applications Congress. It’s free to attend.
