Microfluidics to meet the Sustainable Development Goals
WHEN MICROFLUIDICS MEET SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS, THOUSANDS OF LIVES ARE SAVED.
What’s the Sustainable Development Goals ?
The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice.
At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership.
Each goal has 169 underlying targets and 232 approved indicators which are used to track progress towards achieving them by 2030.
Which Goal does Fluigent contribute to ?
With the innovation at the heart of our activities, Fluigent has committed to this 2030 Agenda for sustainable development. In particular, we have committed to the Target 9.5 of the Goal 9 INDUSTRIES, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE.
What’s the Target 9.5 ?
Enhance scientific research, upgrade the technological capabilities of industrial sectors in all countries, in particular developing countries, including, by 2030, encouraging innovation and substantially increasing the number of research and development workers per 1 million people and public and private research and development spending.
Target 9.5 calls upon companies to encourage innovation and substantially enhance scientific research and development workers, upgrade the technological capabilities of industrial sectors in all countries.
Fluigent develops, manufactures and commercializes innovative fluid handling solutions for a variety of rapidly growing applications where fluid handling and flow control is critical as scientific research. We have delivered microfluidic solutions to hundreds of researchers worldwide since 2006 and helped them to accelerate their groundbreaking discoveries and papers publishing.
What’s the result ?
In 2020, Fluigent’s microfluidic solutions saved 25,470 hours globally for R&D researchers.
