Microfluidic Event in Spain
Also the international approach with 34% of delegates attending from outside of Spain and fully business oriented. Is one of the largest Forum in the world with more than 850 companies coming and in one to one meetings, over 3.000 every edition.
The meeting will be in Bilbao, in the Bilbao Exhibition Center from the 28th to the 30th of September and here you can find the schedule/program: http://www.biospain2016.org/Program
microLIQUID will be there with one stand, within the Biobasque pavilion where we will show our latest developments and services. It is a great opportunity to meet and explain our capabilities for the market.

Microfluidics Application: Biomarker for Detection through Microfluidic Chips
Biomarkers are the physiological,biochemical or morphological changes that occur as a result of exposure,generally, to a toxic substance. The Biomarkers are only the measures/responses at molecular and cellular level because it is the perfect situation to study the cause-effect relationships and mechanisms of action of these substances.
It is important to understand their mechanisms of action to develop medical or detection devices. Other features that allow its use is the reproducibility, sensitivity, specificity and especially they present a very fast response time for detection, among other things.
Due to these features it is an instrument widely used both in the environmental field and in the health industry.
It is essential that the biomarker response time is short , so that it can be used as “early warning system” and if also shows a diagnostic value, it can then be used predictively.
We can distinguish two types of biomarkers, biomarkers that indicate exposure and those that indicate damage from exposure.
