Select Biosciences Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics Europe 2018 now in its 10th year brings together researchers and industry participants from both academia and industry focusing on technology and innovation in the Lab-on-a-Chip (LOAC) and Microfluidics fields.
Presentations will explore the latest advances in the Lab-on-a-Chip and 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. There is an Extensive International Perspective at this Conference with Speakers, Poster Presenters, Sponsors, and Exhibitors from the US, Europe, and Asia/Pacific.

Abstract: Birth of a future giant: zoom on the Chinese Microfluidics Industry.
The Chinese government has created a strategic plan to comprehensively upgrade the country’s industrial sector and make China a major player that is independent from other countries. This plan, “Made in China 2025”, includes a focus on pharmaceuticals and medical devices. Companies involved in these sectors will benefit from almost unlimited funding by 2025, with the goal to compete with foreign industries and retake significant market share. As a key tool for diagnostics and life sciences applications, microfluidic technology will surely benefit from this massive spend. As a consequence, in the recent years, many microfluidic companies were created in China and are now bringing some products to the market. But which are these companies, what is their position in the supply chain, what are their capabilities and are they a threat to foreign companies? What are the opportunities for Western companies in China? Yole’s presentation will provide an overview of the Chinese microfluidics landscape and explain how this may evolve in the next few years, highlighting the threats and opportunities for foreign players.
