Biosystems on the way to the market

11.12.2006
"Boost Biosystems" prepares technology researchers and entrepreneurs for a cooperation

Under the project name "Boost Biosystems", a ScanBalt BioRegion consortium creates the basis for an intensive integration of researchers and small enterprises in the field of biosystem technologies.

The combination of biological materials and microsystem technology is described as "Biosystem technology". Sustainable life science applications - such as cell chip technologies for drug developments or miniaturized bioprocesses in diagnostic devices - should be developed through European research cooperations.

In doing so, research results are brought to the market, product portfolios of biotech companies will be enlarged and hereby regional economies will be strengthened. This interdisciplinary cooperation between clinics, small biotech companies and microsystem technology suppliers is not yet sufficiently implemented and an enormous potential for innovations has not yet been developed.

The European Commission underlines: "The convergence of microsystems and biotechnology will have significant impact on bio-industry and pharmaceutical industry as well as on personalized medicine. The basis for the project exists in the Scanbalt region and reaching the objectives could dramatically improve European competitiveness in this area where USA has taken the lead so far."

First of all, the project managers of "Boost Biosystems" will create a market overview and map the market players. In a second step seminars and workshops will be offered on a regional level, finally connects the interested actors from the differend regions and branches during international meetings. The partners in this 6th EU Research Framework Program are ScanBalt, Tartu Biotechnology Park, Norgenta Hamburg, Culminatum Helsinki and the Center of of Technology Transfer Gdansk. "Boost Biosystems" is led by Steinbeis Team Northeast in Rostock.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
