Enter the Dolomite and Lab on a Chip Productizing Science® Competition 2015 Now!
News Apr 23, 2015
Calling all entrepreneurial researchers, scientists and engineers! Dolomite and Lab on a Chip are seeking novel, microfluidics-based concepts with commercial potential for the Productizing Science® Competition 2015. To make sure users don’t miss the chance to drive their microfluidics innovation forwards, simply submit entry before the April 30th deadline.
The Productizing Science® Competition, jointly organized by Dolomite and Lab on a Chip, aims to bridge the gap between scientific innovation and commercial success by turning early stage technologies into market-leading products.
This exciting competition offers the opportunity to take advantage of Dolomite’s invaluable commercial expertise and in-depth understanding of the international microfluidics market to develop users idea into a profitable product.
The winning entry will benefit from Dolomite’s outstanding R&D capabilities to help take the concept or prototype through to a market-ready product, backed by Lab on a Chip’s ability to reach out to the wide-ranging scientific community to maximize marketing opportunities.
So, if users have made a scientific breakthrough or have a prototype system that they are struggling to develop - whether financially, technically or commercially - simply submit an abstract before the 30th of April 2015 for their chance to win. Enter now, and help shape the future of microfluidics!
3-D Printed Sugar Scaffolds Offer Sweet Solution for Tissue EngineeringNews
University of Illinois engineers built a 3-D printer that offers a sweet solution to making detailed structures that commercial 3-D printers can’t: Rather than a layer-upon-layer solid shell, it produces a delicate network of thin ribbons of hardened isomalt, the type of sugar alcohol used to make throat lozenges.READ MORE
3D Printer Developed That Can Create Complex Biological TissuesNews
A UCLA bioengineer has developed a technique that uses a specially adapted 3D printer to build therapeutic biomaterials from multiple materials. The advance could be a step toward on-demand printing of complex artificial tissues for use in transplants and other surgeries.READ MORE
Microfluidic Device Captures Extracellular Vesicles Shed by Brain TumorsNews
Because needle biopsies of brain tumors are invasive and difficult, bioengineers supported by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) have developed micro-technologies that capture extracellular vesicles (EVs) released by the tumor.READ MORE
