Microfluidic Event in Germany
During three days in November, from 14 to 17 November, we have been part of the most important trade fair for In-Patient and out-patient Medicine in the city of Düsseldorf (Germany), MEDICA 2016.
Medica is the most attractive fair for the people who are working in the Health Care industry. There have been more than 130,000 visitors from over 120 countries, having the chance to take part in numerous special events, such as international conferences and forums.
Moreover Medica is the focus of the worldwide medical trade, and it has the largest and most comprehensive product display.
Microfluidics is a technology which has a big presence in the fair, as many of the solutions offered to the market in Diagnostics – IVD Market are based on it.
The trade fair we have been attending has more than 5.000 exhibitors from all around the world, with more than 19 halls on the exhibit area.
Furthermore, it is important to know that more than 500 of the exhibitors where from the United States of America and Canada.
Two members of our company have been attending the Medica world trade fair, having different meetings. As visitors, you are able to contact many companies in the Medical Device and Diagnostics in order to expand our business portfolio.
Microfluidic Chip: Lab on a chip solution
Microfluidic Lab on a Chip (LOC) is a Device which integrates one or several laboratory functions on a single chip of only milimeters to few centimeters in size and that are capable of handling extremely small fluid volumes down to less than pico liters.
The main ADVANTAGES are:
– Low fluid volume consumption
– Faster analysis and response times
– Better controlled reactions
– Optimized heat and mass transfer
– Low fabrication costs
There is an increasing interest in MEDICINE , BIOLOGY and ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY to develop these devices due to the flexibility, cost and speed.
