Microfluidics in their PRIME: Microfluidic Chips, Active Valves, Smart Sensors, and What Comes Next


A final dissemination event for the H2020 project PRIME, of interest to those in the field of microfluidics.

Microfluidic devices manipulate tiny amounts of fluid, enabling cost-effective, fast, accurate and high-throughput analytical assays. Progress in microfluidics has huge impact in environmental pollution monitoring, biohazard detection and biomedicine, contributing to the development of new tools for drug screening, biological studies, point-of-care diagnostics and personalized medicine.


Despite this huge potential, microfluidics market growth is heavily constrained by the complexity and high prices of the required large-scale off-chip equipment and its operational cost.


PRIME, an EU-funded H2020 project, has used additive manufacturing technologies to integrate smart valves in a microfluidic chip. PRIME is also producing new ultra-sensitive and selective sensors embedded in the chip and readable with light. The final device is to be remotely addressed and read using simple photonic elements that can be integrated in compact, portable and cheap operation&read devices.


Join the PRIME consortium and others from the field of microfluidics to learn more about this technology for their final dissemination event with a beautiful view of Vienna, Austria at the unique TUtheSky location on Thursday, 14 September 2023.
