liver disorders and chronic inflammatory bowel diseases. BT-50 can be produced by recombinant means and used for the quantification of atypical pANCA in serum probes. So far, atypical pANCA have been detected on ethanol-fixed neutrophils by indirect immunofluorescence microscopy. This complex and expensive method represents the “gold standard” by now. In order to develop a simple screening method for atypical pANCA, there have been several attempts to establish an ELISA for use in any routine laboratory. Up to now the sensitivity of these commercially available test systems has always been less than 50%, irrespective of the used antigen (e.g. myeloperoxidase (MPO), cathepsin G, bactericidal/permeability increasing protein etc.), as the responsible antigen was unknown up to the present. Now that BT-50 has been identified as the main target antigen for atypical pANCA, highly specific solid phase
tests, e.g. ELISA, can be established for the detection of atypical pANCA. In contrast to immunofluorescence microscopy, ELISA tests can be easily performed in routine laboratories.

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
