POC Diagnostic at Resource Limited Settings

Rapid diagnostics have proven hugely successful in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and have almost become an everyday commodity in many locations. In contrast, there is still a staggering gap between the need for diagnostics versus their development and use for that purpose, especially at resource limited settings. This workshop will give a general overview on microfluidic technologies developed for portable and connected point-of-care diagnostics, with focus on resource limited settings. Among other things, the workshop will discuss and cover differenttechniques for efficient integration of reagents to microfluidics chips towards "sample-in-result-out" detection.

The workshop will be of interest to a wide range of R&D scientists and engineers, grad students/postdocs, medical doctors, decision makers, and product developers, active in microsystems technology and applications in diagnostics.
