Lionix (Groupleader Optofluidics)
:He was born in Rijssen, the Netherlands, in 1975 and studied applied physics at the University of Twente where he received a M.Sc. degree at the Biophysical engineering group in 2003. In this same group he started his Ph.D. work on the topic of advanced detection systems for the analysis of circulating tumors cells. His Ph.D. work was carried out in collaboration with Immunicon Corporation (Huntingdon Valley, PA, USA) and his thesis was titled: “Laser Image Cytometer for Analysis of Circulating Tumor Cell ". In 2008 he joined LioniX B.V. where he is now working as a groupleader of the optofluidic group in the field of micro fluidics and integrated optics. Erik Schreuder has worked the last 10 years in the business of development for lab-on-chip technology and has experience in several cleanroom manufacturing processes and characterization methods, and he has worked as project leader on several national and European projects.
