FluidicMEMS May 2011 Event: Bill Rodriguez of Daktari Diagnostics

Terrific to have Bill Rodriguez, CEO and founder of Daktari Diagnostics, speak at the FluidicMEMS gathering on May 26th sponsored by MicroPEP, where a mix of ~50 microfluidics folks in the Boston area from academia and industry gathered over food and drink to meet, exchange ideas, and trade stories. Daktari is developing a portable microfluidic CD4 cell counter for HIV patients in the developing world. Bill shared the behind-the-scenes process of going from a prototype to a product that must be low-cost, reliable and robust enough to withstand challenging conditions in rural Africa. 

And thanks to the others who helped make this event happen: co-organizers A.J. Kumar and Joost Bonsen, co-sponsors Zeta Instruments and Dolomite Microfluidics, and Microsoft for generously hosting us at its research center in Cambridge
