Archive: 2006 Microfluids Technology Fair

October 3, 2006 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
Northeastern University,
Egan Center, Raytheon Amphitheater
120 Forsyth Street, Boston, MA.

Conference Description

The Microfluidics Technology Fair will provide an opportunity for industry and investors to review the latest technology developments in microfluidics from Massachusetts institutions.

Established companies and investors that work in the fields of Drug Delivery, Diagnostics, Fuel Cells, Electrowetting, Homeland Security, Instrumentation, Control Systems, Personal Care, and Research Tools are invited to review and discuss current research from Boston University, Harvard, MIT, Northeastern University, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, University of Massachusetts Lowell, and other Massachusetts research institutions.

Representatives from several institutions that have state-of-the-art microfluidics prototyping and development facilities that are available for industry use will also be available to discuss their capabilities and how industry may access these resources.

This forum will also provide technology transfer officers and local researchers the opportunity to review research at other local institutions and form new partnerships in the microfluidics area.
