Workshop will be held at the Courtyard by Marriot, Meeting Room A on October 28, 2012 at Pittsburgh, PA.

The AES Electrophoresis Society is hosting a workshop entitled, "AES Microfluidics Workshop Part I - Fundamental of Electrokinetics and Microfluidics" at its AES Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The workshop will focus on the theory and fundamentals of electrokinetics transport in microfluidics devices and will feature demonstrations and instruction for the components of LabSmith's LabPackage for micro- and nano-fluidic research.

The workshop will be held at the Courtyard by Marriot, Meeting Room A, Sunday, October 28, 2012, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM, Pittsburgh, PA.

The course instructor is Professor Todd Squires, Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

The hands-on component of the workshop with LabSmith equipment will be taught by Yolanda Fintschenko, Ph.D., Director of Marketing, Sales, and New Technologies, LabSmith, Inc. Course topics include:
• Linear and nonlinear electrokinetic phenomena
• Effects of surface conduction and ion conservation.
• Convection vs. diffusion, Peclet number for separations, filtration, reactions and mixing.
• Live demo experiments with LabSmith equipment.

The AES workshop is recommended for researchers in the field of microfluidics, biomedical and chemical engineers, industrial R&D engineers, chemists, biochemists, university professors and students.

Attendees will focus on electrokinetic fluid flow and particle actuation. Scientist and Professor Blanca Lapizco-Encinas at Rochester Institute of Technology encourages students of all backgrounds to take this course stating, “This kind of instruction makes the abstraction of flow mechanics and transport in electrokinetic flow and parabolic pressure-driven flow on a chip come alive for students. It also gives scientist new to the field a feel for the physics and chemistry that dominate in the planar, microfluidic format.”
