Lab-on-a-chip (LOC) is a term for devices that integrate (multiple)
laboratory functions on a single chip of only millimeters to a few
square centimeters in size and that are capable of handling extremely
small fluid volumes down to less than pico liters. Lab-on-a-chip
devices are a subset of MEMS devices and often indicated by "Micro
Total Analysis Systems" (µTAS) as well. Microfluidics is a broader
term that describes also mechanical flow control devices like pumps
and valves or sensors like flowmeters and viscometers. However,
strictly regarded "Lab-on-a-Chip" indicates generally the scaling of
single or multiple lab processes down to chip-format, whereas "µTAS"
is dedicated to the integration of the total sequence of lab processes
to perform chemical analysis. The term "Lab-on-a-Chip" was introduced
later on when it turned out that µTAS technologies were more widely
applicable than only for analysis purposes.
Microfluidics deals with the behavior, precise control and
manipulation of fluids that are geometrically constrained to a small,
typically sub-milimeter, scale. It is a multidisciplinary field
intersecting engineering, physics, chemistry, microtechnology and
biotechnology, with practical applications to the design of systems in
which such small volumes of fluids will be used. Microfluidics has
emerged in the beginning of the 1980s and is used in the development
of inkjet printheads, DNA chips, lab-on-a-chip technology, micro-
propulsion, and micro-thermal technologies.

online translation

Since October 2008 we provide an online translation service of the
Gene Quantification pages to several languages. Please recognize this
is an automatic and robotic based translation service, and therefore
we can give NO guarantee about the generated content. It should help
to understand the "rough" content of the Gene Quantification pages,
but still the original is the ENGLISH version:

qPCR WORKSHOP

BioEPS GmbH / TATAA Biocenter Germany - qPCR Application workshops

At the TATAA Biocenter Germany we offer qPCR application workshops, a
3-day qPCR Core Module and a 2-day qPCR Biostatistics Module. All
courses are held regularly in Göteborg, Sweden, in English and in
Freising-Weihenstephan, Germany, in German and English, and in Prague,
Czech Republic in English and Czech.
Depending on the occasion the workshop language and the different
prices may apply. Further customized workshops and specialized
trainings will be held as well across Europe and world-wide.
TATAA Biocenter Germany workshops are held in cooperation with BioEPS
GmbH, located at the campus of the Technical University of Munich, in
Freising-Weihenstephan, very close to the Munich Airport (MUC). For
