CfBI in the USA .. Microfluidics Consortium MF4 expands Stateside

The Centre for Business Innovation (CfBI) is pleased to announce that its Microfluidics Consortium will be hosted by Johnson and Johnson at their global HQ in New Brunswick on May 17th. Following this we will be organizing on May 18th an Open Day in Cambridge MA (Hosted by the British Consulate General) with the objective to promoting our member thinking and offerings to an invited audience of non members. Beyond this we plan to hold meetings of the Microfluidics Consortium in equal measure in Europe and in North America in order to match the landscape of research and development in the rapidly developing field of microfluidics.

This new initiative is encouraged by recent new member wins in Noth America including: Diba Industries, International Copper Organisation, Johnson and Johnson, Tecan and the National Research Council of Canada.
