NIST Presents Its Microfluidics Technologies For Commercial Adoption


NIST Presents Its Microfluidics Technologies For Commercial Adoption

On Tuesday, October 9, 2007, NIST presented some of its novel technologies developed at the NIST Labs in the emerging Microfluidics field.

See an agenda of this event.


"The global market for microfluidic techonolgies was worth an estimated $2.9 billion in 2005. This figure should grow to $3.2 billion in 2006 and $6.2 billion by 2011, i.e., an average annual growth rate of 14.1% over the next five years." -- Microfluidics Technology, BCC Research, 2006
