The European Institute of Printed Circuits (EIPC), in cooperation with the University of Bath, will be holding a workshop focused on PCB Bio-MEMS on December 8 at the Premier Inn Hotel in London Heathrow.
Bio-MEMS are biomedical (or biological) microelectromechanical systems (a.k.a. lab-on-chip). Given this strong market “pull” for more BioMEMs devices ($2.5 billion in 2014 and anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 25% from 2016 to 2023), the commercialization of lab-on-chip devices is currently the “holy grail of the research community. The lab-on-PCB approach is being followed in various research groups all over Europe, owing to its inherent upscaling potential: the PCB industry is well-established all around the world, with standardized fabrication facilities and processes, however commercially exploited currently only for electronics.
