Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics World Congress 2020
Yole Développement invites you to join us at Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics World Congress 2020.
Bringing together researchers and industry participants from both academia and industry, this established congress now in its 12th consecutive year, will discuss the latest innovations and developments in the Lab-on-a-Chip (LOAC) and Microfluidics fields.
Presentations will explore the latest advances in the Lab-on-a-Chip & Microfluidics Fields. Focus at this conference will also be given to some of the many applications of Lab-on-a-Chip, from life science research, to taking diagnostics to the point-of-care/point-of-need and body-on-a-chip/organs-on-a-chip. We focus on LOAC device production technologies, novel designs/technologies for manufacture, as well as the key application areas for LOAC from research to diagnostics as well as 3D-bioprinting and the convergence of microfluidics technologies with biofabrication and 3D-printing. There is an Extensive International Perspective at this Conference with Speakers, Poster Presenters, Sponsors, and Exhibitors from the US, Europe, and Asia/Pacific. Running alongside the conference will be an exhibition covering the latest technological advances and associated products and services from leading solution providers within this field from around the world.
Yole Développement will participate in the following:
”Point-of-care testing and COVID-19: one-shot or long-term opportunity?”
Sebastien Clerc, Technology & Market Analyst, Microfluidics, Sensing & Actuating at Yole Développement
Abstract: The past few months have seen a new biological threat, the COVID-19 infection, caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, reshape the entire diagnostics ecosystem. Numerous companies rapidly started developing tests to detect the pathogen. But is point-of-care testing the real solution to identify early cases and stop the pandemic? Will there be a change in the use cases in the near future, like testing at the workplace, at the airport or in public transportation or public places? In this talk, Sébastien Clerc will share Yole’s vision of the point-of-care landscape and how the pandemic has impacted it.
