Select Biosciences South East Asia is pleased to present the second annual Lab-on-a-Chip Asia conference and exhibition, focusing on Microfluidic technologies with particular reference to Point-of-Care Diagnostics. Building on the success of last year’s event we are pleased to again be organizing the meeting in conjunction with the Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech), a globally recognized research institute of the Agency for Science and Technology Research (A*STAR). We are honoured to have Dr. Zhiping Wang, as the Conference Chairman. Dr. Wang is the Director of Research Programmes SIMTech and the SIMTech Microfluidics Foundry.


During this event, you will gain an insight into the latest developments in Microfluidics and Microfabrication, Optofluidics and Detection and Biomolecular Detection to name just a few of the exciting topics we will be covering.

In addition to the comprehensive conference programme, we will also be offering a tour of the facilities at the SIMTech Microfluidics Foundry. The tour will be hosted by Dr. Zhiping Wang and is open to all conference attendees, providing you with a detailed insight into the advanced work carried out by SIMTech.

Agenda Topics: - Biomolecular Detection - Cell Separation and Capture - Diagnostics and Medical Applications - Droplet Manipulation and Applications - Market Orientated Device Development - Microfabrication and Microfluidics Manufacturing Technology - Microfluidics Components and Devices - Nanotech on a Chip - Optofluidics and Detection - Single Cell Processing and Analysis

‘Smelling’ Prostate Cancer
A research team from the University of Liverpool and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has reached an important milestone towards creating a urine diagnostic test for prostate cancer that could mean that invasive diagnostic procedures that men currently undergo eventually become a thing of the past.
Criminal Justice Alcohol Program Linked to Decreased Mortality
Institute has announced that in the criminal justice alcohol program deaths dropped by 4.2 percent over six years.
Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism
Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.
Individuals' Medical Histories Predicted by their Noncoding Genomes
Researchers have found that analyzing mutations in regions of the genome that control genes can predict medical conditions such as hypertension, narcolepsy and heart problems.
'Molecular Movie' Opens Door to New Cancer Treatments
An international team of scientists led by the University of Liverpool has produced a 'structural movie' revealing the step-by-step creation of an important naturally occurring chemical in the body that plays a role in some cancers.
Advancing Synthetic Biology
Living systems rely on a dizzying variety of chemical reactions essential to development and survival. Most of these involve a specialized class of protein molecules — the enzymes.
Preparing for Potential Zika Outbreaks
Experts at the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID) are developing tools to monitor the spread of the Zika virus and are conducting research to gather more solid data to better assess the risks associated with the infection.
What do Banana Peels and Human Skin Have in Common?
Human skin and banana peels have something in common: they produce the same enzyme when attacked. By studying fruit, researchers have come up with an accurate method for diagnosing the stages of this form of skin cancer.
Biomarker for Recurring HPV-Linked Oropharyngeal Cancers
A look-back analysis of HPV infection antibodies in patients treated for oropharyngeal (mouth and throat) cancers linked to HPV infection suggests at least one of the antibodies could be useful in identifying those at risk for a recurrence of the cancer, say scientists at the Johns Hopkins University.
Counting Cancer-busting Oxygen Molecules
Researchers from the Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP), an Australian Research Centre of Excellence, have shown that nanoparticles used in combination with X-rays, are a viable method for killing cancer cells deep within the living body.
