Building on the success of the 2nd Microfluidics Congress held in December last year, Global Engage is pleased to announce that the event will be returning as part of our 4bioevent on the 4th – 5th December in Central London at the Novotel London West Hotel. This event will be co-located with the 5th qPCR and Digital PCR Congress, the 4th Synthetic Biology & Gene Editing Congress, and the NGS Tech & Applications Congress.
2017 speakers include:
Microfluidics continues to be an exciting and rapidly developing area in the life sciences with a continually expanding range of applications. As technologies and strategies continue to mature, this congress brings together experts in academia and industry to network and share ideas.
Attracting experts working in microfluidic development and application, including point-of-care diagnostics, single cell analysis, lab-on-a-chip applications, droplet microfluidics and next generation microfluidics, the conference will examine the latest developments in the technologies and techniques being used for progressing medical research in areas as disease monitoring, diagnostics and organ-on-a-chip. This interactive meeting will allow you to keep up to date with the cutting edge of research and provides the opportunity to make connections with academics, investors and businesses in your field.

Poster presentation sessions will take place in breaks and alongside the other breakout sessions of the conference. Your presentation will be displayed in a dedicated area, with the other accepted posters from industry and academic presenters.
We also issue a poster eBook to all attendees with your full abstract in and can share your poster as a PDF after the meeting if you desire (optional).
Whether looking for funding, employment opportunities or simply wanting to share your work with a like-minded and focused group, these are an excellent way to join the heart of this congress.
In order to present a poster at the forum you need to be registered as a delegate. Please note that there is limited space available and poster space is assigned on a first come first served basis (subject to checks and successful registration).
We charge an admin fee of £100 to industry delegates to present, that goes towards the shared cost of providing the poster presentation area and display boards, guides etc. This fee is waived for those representing academic institutions and not for profit organisations.
We will require the form (downloadable below) to be submitted by the 17th November. This is the formal deadline however space is another limiting factor so early application is recommended. Therefore please contact us with any questions you have as soon as possible.
To submit your poster please complete the form below.
Posters should be presented as A0 or US equivalent, size E (841mm x 1189mm or 34 x 44 inches respectively) in portrait orientation. In order to present a poster at the forum, you need to be registered as a delegate.
The poster session was handled better than at some competitive meetings.

The access to both microfluidics and PCR content was extremely valuable to me since my research involved both topics.

The networking allowed more in-depth discussion resulting in collaborations cross disciplines.

There was a good mix between congress topics, in microfluidics and qPCR in particular, which gelled well. I also liked the presence of a lot of commercial displays show casing the leading industry technologies.
