Biosystems on the way to the market

"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: Novel light sources made of 2D materials

Physicists from the University of Würzburg have designed a light source that emits photon pairs. Two-photon sources are particularly well suited for tap-proof data encryption. The experiment's key ingredients: a semiconductor crystal and some sticky tape.

So-called monolayers are at the heart of the research activities. These "super materials" (as the prestigious science magazine "Nature" puts it) have been...

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
