Joana Miranda, Ph.D student of the Faculty of Biotechnology, and Yanisa Thepchuay, a PhD student at Mahidol University (Thailand) who was in the Faculty of Biotechnology, were honored at the 14th International Conference on Flow Analysis (Flow Analysis 2018). That took place in Bangkok, Thailand, from December 2 to 7, 2018.

Yanisa Thepchuay, a Ph.D student of Mahidol University (Thailand), received the first oral presentation award for the work "Microfluidic paper-based analytical devices (μPADs) for the determination of total ammonia nitrogen in saliva", developed during her stay at the Escola Superior de Biotecnologia, under the guidance of António Rangel and Raquel Mesquita.

Joana Miranda was awarded, in the frame of her PhD in ESB, with the prize for the best panel presentation with the work "Spectrofluorimetric determination of iodide in urine samples without pretreatment using a miniaturized analyzer chip in a multi-syringe flow system" developed under the guidance of Víctor Cerdá, of the University of the Balearic Islands.

The 14th International Conference on Flow Analysis [] is an international conference that discusses topics focused on the development of flow-based methods under the concepts of automation and miniaturization. Several researchers of the Faculty of Biotechnology were present at the Conference: António Rangel was "keynote lecturer" and panel presenter; Raquel Mesquita and Susana Vidigal were "invited lecturers", and panel presenters; Tânia Moniz (Requimte) gave a panel presentation; Joana Miranda and Yanisa Thepchuay made the presentations mentioned above; Francisca Ferreira (master student) gave a panel presentation and Carolina Costa (master student) gave a panel presentation.
