Microfluidics 2.0 Workshop on Capillary-based Microfluidics for Bioanalysis 2012

September 3, 2012


Are you curious about the rapidly growing field of paper microfluidics?  Or maybe you’re already in the field and want to meet up with others doing the same?  Are you already planning to visit Boston this fall for MRS and building your itinerary?


Then check out this year’s Microfluidics 2.0 Workshop on Capillary-based Microfluidics for Bioanalysis hosted at Boston University on Friday November 30, 2012 and Saturday morning December 1, 2012 by the Klapperich Laboratory and the Boston University Department of Biomedical Engineering.


The lineup looks fantastic and includes speakers plus hands-on demos!
