Microfluidics: Bioanalytical Applications

Monday, October 17, 2011: 12:30 PM
L100 D (Minneapolis Convention Center)

Remarkable progress has been made in the fabrication micro- and nano- scale devices for the manipulation and detection of organisms and biomolecules. This session will focus on integration and detection aspects related to the emerging concept of a ‘chip-in-a-lab’ as well as the more established ‘lab-on-a-chip’ systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, platforms for multi- and uni- cellular analysis (biochemical or physical), immunosensors, electrochemical sensors, and various spectroscopic and separation tools in a microchip format. We are particularly interested in papers dealing with micro/nano scale systems and issues related to molecular (biochemistry), cellular, or systems biology. Both experimental and theoretical contributions are welcome.
