Applications of Micro and Nano Technology in Biosensing & Diagnostics

Sep 16 2009 Read 584 Times

This BioSIG meeting, jointly organised by the SIKTN and NanoKTN, was held on 17th September 2009, at Cranfield University. It aims to highlight current advances in biosensing and diagnostics being made possible by the application of micro and nanotechnology. The programme includes presentations from leading academic researchers and industrial R&D and manufacturing organisations on the use of MEMS, microfluidics, cantilever biosensor arrays, printed microstructures, MIPs, nanowires, DNA nanoswitches and paramagnetic particles. These technical presentations are balanced by an industry presentation giving a commercial
perspective on the use of nanoparticles for biosensing and a view from a large diagnostics company on what it is looking for from micro and nanotechnology. Time will be allowed for making new contacts, viewing new products from industry and networking; following the formal presentations in the afternoon a session is free for delegates to visit the exhibition stands and poster displays or have a guided tour of some of the Cranfield Health laboratories, or simply to meet with the presenters and other delegates in a relaxed environment.
