In-vitro-Diagnostic: Systems for Patient-near Testing

04.11.2011
Within an internally funded project named "Fraunhofer ivD-Platform" a credit card-sized lab-on-chip system could be established which enables the patient-near analysis of up to 500 different parameters from a drop of blood.

Hence, complicated patient-near sampling and testing can be performed. Via the use of information and communication technologies the system is mobile and can be used in a variety of different scenarios.

The Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT, Branch Potsdam-Golm, together with different collaborators will be presenting its research development in point of care testing on this years' MEDICA (16.-19. November, Düsseldorf, Hall 10 Stand F05).

First applications of the system are in intensive care and emergency medicine as well as screenings and therapy control. In addition, as a technology platform also other analyses can be transferred onto the system. At the end of the project all partners are available at the booth on november,17, 2011 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Results reveal how discoveries may be hidden in scientific “blind spots”

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
