MiniFAB to present at 2012 Lab-on-a-Chip World Congress
MiniFAB to have a strong presence at the 2012 Lab-on-a-Chip World Congress conference (25-26 September) in San Diego, CA with with a platform presentation, poster presentation, and exhibit booth.
MiniFAB CEO Erol Harvey will present Five Tips for Successful Commercialization of Lab-on-Chip Diagnostics at 11:15AM on Wednesday September 26th. This presentation will share insights into managing complexity for successful technology transfer from laboratory prototype to full-scale manufacture of medical diagnostics. Topics covered will include issues like manufacturability, scale-up and regulatory hurdles. MiniFAB Production Manager Bas Garst will present the poster Design-for-Manufacture Approaches in Microfluidic Product Development in the poster viewing session on both conference days at 1:30 PM, poster #428. This overview will provide understanding of Design-for-Manufacture approaches unique to polymer microfluidics that enable robust, reliable, cost-effective and volume manufacturability.
MiniFAB specializes in developing in-vitro diagnostics (IVD) and sample preparation enabled by custom microfluidic lab-on-chip solutions that solve complex problems. With a flexible and open engagement model, MiniFAB’s product development process covers the entire spectrum, from converting early-stage product concepts into prototypes through to OEM full-scale, high throughput manufacturing within an ISO 13485 environment.
Visitors to MiniFAB’s exhibit booth will learn about a variety of disposable polymer microfluidic products developed for a range of applications, demonstrating:
• Precision fluid handling capabilities (e.g. mixers and flow cells)
• Integration of functional elements (e.g. sensors, electrodes, valves, filters and membranes)
• A variety of substrate materials with a range of channel and feature sizes and complexity
• Manufacturability of challenging features like flatness over large surfaces and high aspect ratio pillars
• Concept demonstration prototypes
• Examples of complete instrument-disposable systems
