Session 1: Micro/Nanofluidics Research and Advances
Microfluidic innovation offers a developing arrangement of instruments for controlling little volumes of liquids to control concoction, organic, and physical procedures that are applicable to detecting. The improvement of these apparatuses dependent on lithographic methods empowers joining with electronic and optical components important for the development of operational sensor. Microfluidics is an integrative domain originating from a mix of microanalysis, biodefence and microelectronics down to the micrometric and sub-micrometric scale.
Session 2: Lab-On-A-Chip Technology
A lab-on-a-chip (LOC) is a gadget performing on a scaled down scale one or a few investigations normally did in a research facility. It incorporates and robotizes numerous high-goals lab methods, for example, blend and examination of synthetic concoctions or liquid testing into a framework that fits on a chip. There are numerous points of interest to working at this scale. Tests investigation can happen on the spot, where the examples are produced, instead of being conveyed to a broad research center office.

Organs on chips are 3D cell culture microdevices planning to repeat the key elements of living organs on a PC chip. These microfluidic gadgets are more productive than customary cell culture systems since they can imitate microenvironments just as their effect on organ work. This permits to investigate the human physiology for a particular organ and start headways in counterfeit ailment models.
Session 4: Bio-MEMS/NEMS and Chips
A microfluidic chip is an example of microchannels, shaped or engraved. This system of microchannels fused into the microfluidic chip is connected to the large scale condition by a few openings of various measurements burrowed out through the chip. It is through these pathways that liquids are infused into and emptied from the microfluidic chip. Liquids are coordinated, blended, isolated or controlled to achieve multiplexing, mechanization, and high-throughput frameworks.
Session 5: Microfabrication Technologies
Microfabrication procedures permit to study and assembling miniaturized scale structures down to the micrometer scale and littler, coordinated into microfluidic gadgets. It is utilized in a wide scope of uses, for example, reproduction forming or microcontact printing and strikingly permits to correctly control cells shape and capacities by making adjusted microstructures.
Session 6: Electrochemistry and microfluidics
Electrochemistry contemplates the connection between electrical flow streams and synthetic responses. Electrochemical identification components can be coordinated inside a microfluidic gadget making it solid and profoundly touchy. Electrochemistry has numerous applications, especially in logical science, with the improvement of electrochemical sensors, lab-on-a-chip and biosensors.
Session 7: Acoustic Droplet Ejection
Acoustofluidics manage the utilization of acoustic fields, essentially ultrasonics onto liquids inside microfluidic channels permitting to control cells and particles. It alludes to the investigation and control of acoustic waves on microscale to nanoscale fluidic conditions. These mechanical waves are incurred on the liquid through the excitation of the microchannels dividers with an actuator. Acoustics offer promising capacities in the control of the two liquids and particles inside those liquids on the smaller scale/nano-meter scale.
Session 8: Bio-sensing Technologies
A biosensor can be characterized as a conservative expository gadget or unit joining an organic or organically determined touchy acknowledgment component immobilized on a physicochemical transducer to quantify at least one analytes. Microfluidic frameworks, then again, give throughput handling, improve transport for controlling the stream conditions, increment the blending pace of various reagents, lessen test and reagents volume (down to nanoliter), increment affectability of recognition, and use a similar stage for both example readiness and discovery.
Session 9: Digital microfluidics
Digital Microfluidics is also called droplet microfluidics or emulsion science, advanced microfluidics is one of the fundamental application fields of microfluidics. It empowers to control independent beads on a substrate utilizing electro-wetting. This permits to produce and control uniform, reproducible beads over the trials' parameters. Droplets generation can be utilized in an enormous scope of utilizations like in amalgamation of nanoparticles, single cell examination, and exemplification of organic elements. This innovation will likely turn into a significant instrument for sedate conveyance and bio sensing, by giving new answers for cutting edge diagnostics and therapeutics.
North America accounted for the largest share of the microfluidics market in 2018, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. The largest share of the North American region is mainly attributed to the higher incidence rate of chronic diseases, availability of insurance coverage for laboratory testing procedures, enough reimbursements for medical devices, and presence of well-structured distribution channels in the region. In addition, high demand for self-administration and home healthcare devices, and increasing applications of micropumps, inhalers, and transdermal microneedles for chronic conditions such as migraine, diabetes, cancer pain, and asthma have further resulted in the large share of this market.
The global microfluidic devices market size is predicted to reach $6.4 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 23% during the forecast period. The market is driven by factors such as, increase in demand for point of care testing products, microfluidic technologies for miniaturization of chip, and rising demand for genomics and proteomics.
Some key industry contributors are Illumina, Inc., Agilent Technologies, Caliper Life Sciences (acquired by perkinelmer, Inc.), Cepheid, Danaher Corporation, Life Technologies Corporation (acquired by Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc.), Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., Abbott Laboratories, F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd, and Fluidigm Corporation.
Companies are introducing new products to strengthen their market position. For instance, In February 2015, Illumina, Inc. Launched neoprep, an automatic DNA and RNA sample preparation platform. Through the neoprep microfluidics cartridge, 16 samples are prepared at a time. Innovation and research & development by the market players in the microfluidics segment are expected to propel the market growth in the coming years.
