Innovative solutions in “Proven Excellence” quality
At a modern production center, pre-owned medical systems – from x-ray, to computed tomography, to ultrasound – are refurbished, given the “Proven Excellence” quality seal, and then resold worldwide. Siemens Medical Solutions showcased this concept at the Medica 2005.
For more than five years, medical systems have been accepted for trade-in, refurbished, and resold. Most of these systems come from Siemens customers participating in upgrade programs. Customers include physicians in private practice as well as university hospitals with more than 1000 beds. Thanks to its wide range of system configuration capabilities as well as numerous service and financing offerings, RS can individually meet almost any customer requirement with its comprehensive portfolio – from ultrasound devices for routine diagnostics to biplanar cardiac cath labs for interventional diagnostics.
The Internet is an important component in the marketing strategy of RS and serves as an additional sales and communications channel. The website www.siemens.com/refurbished contains information regarding the entire RS portfolio, the “Proven Excellence” process, and contact persons. It also contains trade-in offers for pre-owned medical products.

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...
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...

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.

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.
