The Microfluidics Association promotes the development of the Microfluidics Industry supply chain and positively influences the growth and prosperity of its members.

The Microfluidics Association (MFA) exists to encourage the development, coordination, and dissemination of engineering knowledge as well as market and technical information on microfluidics. It provides industry stewardship and engages industrial, academic and government stakeholders to advance the interests of the global Microfluidics Industry Supply Chain.

Why should you become a member?

We offer our members the opportunity to participate in the discussions about the MFA guidelines and the standards to be developed. Our members can learn from the best practices of the other members. And, of course, our workshops offer great opportunities to network and develop new relations in this industry.

You are invite to become a member, to the workshops of the Microfluidic Association for a reduced fee and receive our future white papers for free. Click below.

ISO

The MFA has taken the initiative to relaunch the ISO/AWI 22916 group: Laboratory equipment — Interoperability of microfluidic devices. The group is aiming to facilitate the process of designing new microfluidic devices (microfluidic chips, sensors, actuators, connectors etc.) by defining requirements for the seamless integration with other microfluidic components and systems. For this we are aiming at the topics: Flowcontrol, Interfacing, Modularity and testing. For this we are using the basis the MFA laid as described in our freely available white paper, complemented by the results of the discussions between stakeholders during our workshop.

Who we are and what we will do for you

The Microfluidics Association is founded by a group of organizations working in the field of microfluidics. The Association brings interested parties together to initiate and follow up actions to promote the microfluidic industry. We have published a number of guidelines for microfluidics design and fabrication. We are developing more elaborate guidelines and standards during our workshops and in the MFA supported ISO group.

Activities

This webinar will present and discuss regulatory science aspects of microfluidic medical devices that are applicable to microfluidic-based medical devices.  It has been co-organized by Suvajyoti Guha, Luke Herbertson and Rucha Natu from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Darwin Reyes, from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and MFA’s Chairman. Agenda: FDA and the Regulation of Medical Devices (Speaker: Suvajyoti Guha) Total Product Life Cycle of Medical Devices (Speaker: Luke Herbertson) Regulatory Science: FDA’s Microfluidic Device Program (Speaker: Rucha Natu) Discussion led by Leanna Levine (ALine, Inc.) and Alexios P. Tzannis (IMT) both…
