2019 Workshop PCB Bio MEMs

Leoben, Austria

June 12

 Date: Wednesday June 12, 2019

Location: Falkensteiner Hotel & Asia Spa leoben

Address: In der Au 1, 8700 Leoben, Austria

 

The day before the EIPC Summer Conference in Leoben, the EIPC and the University of Bath will organize again a 4 hour workshop on PCB Bio MEMs. Bio-MEMS (http://www.biomemsrc.org/) is an abbreviation for biomedical (or biological) microelectromechanical systems (aka Lab-on-a-Chip). Given this strong market “pull” for more BioMEM devices (USD 2.5 billion in 2014 and anticipated to grow at CAGR of over 25% from 2016 to 2023), the commercialization of Lab-on-Chip devices is currently the “holy grail of the research community. The Lab-on-PCB approach (aka PCB BioMEMs) is being followed in various research groups all over Europe, owing to its inherent upscaling potential: the PCB industry is
well-established all around the world, with standardized fabrication facilities and processes, however commercially exploited currently only for electronics.
Key learning objectives of the workshop:
- What is Lab-on-Chip technology, its potential and its commercialization challenges
- PCB based BioMEMs prototypes already developed by European academics
- Competitive advantages of Lab-on-PCB technology and market opportunities
- Technical issues in PCB BioMEMs fabrication
