Lab on a chip systems

Chair: BIOS

Introduction

The BIOS Lab-on-a-Chip chair (“Miniaturized systems for biomedical and environmental applications”) aims at the research and development of Lab-on-a-Chip (LOC) systems. It is our mission to:

  • Further the knowledge and understanding of nanofluidics and nanosensing
  • Bridge the gap between users from physical, chemical, biomedical and life-science field.
  • Develop new micro- and nano-technologies for Lab on a Chip systems
  • Demonstrate the potential of LOC applications
