Tech Transfer Event to Showcase NIST Microfluidics Technologies
From NIST Tech Beat: September 13, 2007
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), in cooperation with the MIT Enterprise Forum™ and TEDCO, will host a technology transfer workshop on Oct. 9, 2007, to showcase several of the agency’s microfluidics technologies that have potential for commercial development. The evening meeting will be held at the NRECA Conference Center in Ballston, Va.
Microfluidics is a key technology underlying the development of highly miniaturized “labs on a chip” that have shown promise for enabling rapid, low-cost biochemical analysis and diagnostics. NIST, which has pursued an active research program in microfluidics for several years, will offer presentations on several of its technologies, including:
