Topic


Microfluidic label-free particle fractionation based on the inherent properties of particles (e.g. cells, microorganisms, organelles) offers significant advantages over conventional techniques in terms of ease of handling and usage, speed, and reduction in cost. We aim here to utilise our comprehensive network and solid experience to put to use several microfluidics technologies to address important biomedical problems.

This workshop has three interdisciplinary and inter-related themes based on understanding and exploiting label-free particle analysis:

trypanosome under microscope Parasites – improve diagnosis by enriching parasites that occur at low concentrations;
SEM photo of bacteria Bacteria: sorting of bacteria in different subpopulations based on morphology that is connected to pathogenicity;
microphoto of a stem cell Rare cells: enrich rare stem cells for therapeutic use;

To tackle these challenges we will cover a wide range of technologies such as:


micro-and nanosystem components Materials, processing and simulation of micro- and nanosystem components
microfluidic sorting Microfluidics
photo of microfluidic impedance cytometry chip Integrated optics and electronics

Oral presentations may be given by invited international experts, researchers, successful entrepreneurs, and experienced industry people.

Poster sessions are planned in connection to the presentations where researchers and companies can present their scientific work in the respective areas.

 Microfluidic particle fractionation based on the inherent properties of e.g. cells, microorganisms and organelles offers significant improvements over conventional techniques in terms of ease of handling and usage, speed and reductions in cost. We will consolidate the field at the European level and create a unique comprehensive training program that rests on solid experimental and theoretical foundations.

LAPASO provides a unique training opportunity for 15 fellows in a highly interdisciplinary and intersectorial environment with the overarching scientific objective of advancing diagnostics for a wide range of critical medical conditions using advanced microfluidics and nanobiotechnology integration.


The project is funded by the People Programme (Marie Curie Actions) of the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme FP7/2007-2013/ under REA grant agreement n° 607350. It runs for four years with start 1 OCT 2013.
