MicrofluidicsMap List of microfluidics companies
View’s list of microfluidics / lab-on-a-chip companies in a larger map

Below is a list I’ve put together of microfluidics / lab-on-a-chip / bioMEMS companies worldwide. The list is meant to be broad and inclusive, so there is a mix of companies: some make point-of-care diagnostics or laboratory tools, while others are foundries or supply microfluidic / bioMEMS components. Please contact me by e-mail if you are aware of companies that haven’t been included. Last edited: November 4, 2014
