Microfluidics for Analytical Chemistry

1 February 2018 08:30-17:00, Southampton, United Kingdom

This one day meeting aims to bring together UK researchers developing and applying microfluidic systems for chemical and biochemical analysis. The meeting will cover all types of devices (lab-on-chip, digital microfluidics, paper microfluidics, total analytical systems etc.) and concern application to all forms of molecular analysis (biomedical, environmental, forensic, quality control etc.).

The meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss recent developments in the field and develop future research opportunities as part of an overall aim to nurture and promote the UK microfluidic and analytical communities. It will also provide opportunities for PhD students and early career researchers to present their work.

Sessions will feature presentations by invited speakers, in addition to presentations selected from submission of abstracts. There will be opportunities during lunch and refreshment breaks to view the posters and exhibition, with additional networking possible during a wine reception at the end of the event.

In addition to the 5 keynote presentations, the following oral presentations have now been confirmed:
  • Nuno M Reis, University of Bath, 'Rapid and sensitive microfluidic quantitation of E.coli in urine'.
  • Matthew Mowlem, National Oceanography Centre,'Robust lab on chip technology for extended deployment in the marine environment'.
  • Beverly R. Andrew, University of Hull, 'Label Free Optical Biosensor for Real Time Cell Imaging'.
  • Nicolas Szita, University College London, 'Real-time and non-invasive monitoring of cellular growth and oxygen kinetics in microfluidic cell culture devices'.
  • Emily Kempa, University of Manchester, 'Integration of a microfluidic chip with mass spectrometry – An example workflow for whole droplet analysis'.
