Microfabrication Technology for Research and Diagnostics: 
September 28-29, 1995, Miyako Hotel, San Francisco, CA

Many of the assays, screen and analytical test used in biomedical
research and diagnostics are suitable for miniaturization.  The
development and production of devices based on emerging
microfabrication technology offers advantages such as unprecedented
speed, while minimizing sample requirements and the operations in a
massively parallel fasion on chips produced at such a low cost as to
be considered disposable.  Engineers are borrowing from technology
already developed for microelectronics, as well as coming up with new
advances in micromachining, materials and other areas needed to meet
the challenges presented by these devices.

Academics and commercial scientists with microfabrication experience
will duscuss the enormous opportunies and critical challenges to be
met.  If you are involved in the development or use of analytical
instruments or diagnostic assays, this timely conference offers you a
series of perspectives on an extremely powerful trend that will help
shape how these activities will be performed.  Take advantage of this
unique forum to get a glimpse of that future.

Call for Additional Exhibitors and Posters

Organizations interested in exhibiting technology or services should
contact Jim MacNeil at (617) 630-1341 for more information.
Researchers are encouraged to present results of their work in poster
form.  Poster boards are 8' x 4 ' landscape.  A one page summary of
the poster should be submitted by September 1 for inclusion in the
conference binder.
