  • The course gives a detailed technical view into miniaturised bioanalysis and highlights some of the lab-on-a-chip technologies that are currently used in clinical medicine and biomedical research. Fundamental principles for bioanalysis integrated in microfluidic systems where sample handling and detection principles are key areas of interest are emphasized. These will be penetrated through lectures and lab exercises.
  • The course is based on a lecture series that will convey both basic lab-on-a-chip technology and describe how this is applied in modern bioanalysis. Guest lecturers from reknowned bioanalysis companies in the region will further point out the importance and the value of miniaturised and automated bioanalysis within the health care sector and within medical research. The course will also encompass a series of lab exercises that outline a set of clinically relevant analytical techniques that are based on microfluidics and lab-on-a-chip technology, that aims at giving hands on experience in the basic ocnstruction of microfluidics based analysis systems and tehreby provide a wholistic view of the lab-on-a-chip technology
