This webinar will discuss how understanding the relative performance characteristics of glass and polymer substrates for in vitro diagnostic applications such as microarrays and microfluidics can help to optimize diagnostic performance.
Interest in in vitro diagnostics has exploded in the last years as advances in molecular diagnostics promise to improve patient health. In this webinar, two experts on biochip development — Richard Bijlard of Technogation and James Downs of Schott Nexterion — will discuss key factors that should be considered for substrate material choices when developing an in vitro diagnostic consumable.
What will you learn?
- Overview of various materials used for the production of in vitro diagnostic consumables
- Design considerations: strengths and weaknesses of various substrates in relation to their applications
- Market and technological trends in substrate use.
