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

Cutting off the Cancer Fuel Supply
Research from investigators at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey and Princeton University has identified a new approach to cancer therapy in cutting off a cancer cell’s ‘fuel supply’ by targeting a cellular survival mechanism known as autophagy. The co-corresponding authors of the work are Rutgers Cancer Institute Deputy Director Eileen P. White, PhD, and researcher ‘Jessie’ Yanxiang Guo, PhD.
