This webinar will provide insight into microfluidic technologies and hybrid solutions that have an enormous impact on the progress in science and healthcare. Microfluidics enables the automation and integration of complex operations on-chip, with reduced sample and reagent volumes. This webinar will focus on how microfluidic technologies have driven progress in in-vitro diagnostics, with a tremendous impact on the way healthcare is delivered to the public, through decentralization. Several market and technology trends will be presented and the use of microfluidic technologies in the rapidly growing field of point-of-care diagnostics will be further discussed.
