Synopsis

To cater to the increasing demand for understanding microfluidic manufacturing processes, SIMTech has launched a new WSQ programme targeting the needs of this industry. This seminar aims to give an overview of this newly launched course. Microfluidics is a multi-disciplinary field intersecting engineering, physics, chemistry, biochemistry, nanotechnology, and biotechnology, which is creating rapid growing markets worldwide in many areas such as clinical and personal diagnosis, drug screening, water and environment monitoring, food safety, and life science research. For this course, the participants will learn about the basic concepts of microfluidics technology, and the fundamentals of the device manufacturing. The participants will gain knowledge and skills on two major techniques for fabricating polymer microfluidic devices, which are plastic injection moulding and joining. The course will be conducted in an interactive way with case studies and hands-on experiments.
