Advances in biosensors and microfluidics devices in life science

In a lab on a chip, biosensors are important building blocks, synergic to microfluidics, because offer the possibility to perform bioanalytical investigations from different biological matrices by detecting specific and with very good sensitivity low concentrations of analytes and biomarkers. New ideas in the field of biosensors and microfluidic devices are driving technological advances in biomedical research with long-term implications in terms of diagnostics, treatments and delivery of care in the future. The aim of this session is to present to the audience possible applicative scenarios and technologies generated by the integration of biosensors and microfluidic devices combining complementary features in terms of sample management and detection capability for the next generation of miniaturized devices for a variety of life science applications.
