These experts will share their latest industry insights, research, and entrepreneur activities, and breakout rooms for networking will be available after the webinar presentations.

Microfluidics refers to the behavior, precise control, and manipulation of fluids that are geometrically constrained to a small scale (typically sub-millimeter) at which surface forces dominate volumetric forces. It is a multidisciplinary field that involves engineering, physics, chemistry, biochemistry, nanotechnology, and biotechnology. It has practical applications in the design of systems that process low volumes of fluids to achieve multiplexing, automation, and high-throughput screening. Similar to 3D printing, microfluidics emerged at the beginning of the 1980s and is used in the development of inkjet printheads, DNA chipslab-on-a-chip technology, micro-propulsion, and micro-thermal technologies, organ-on-a-chip, and more. 3D printing has been both a manufacturing method and an application for microfluidics.”
