COMPAMED is holding on to its position as international leading market place for medical devices

02.12.2013
The COMPAMED, co-located to the world’s biggest medical fair MEDICA in Dusseldorf, Germany, confirmed again its leading position as international market place for medical manufacturing.

Almost 17.000 international guests, most of them from abroad, came to the halls 8a and 8b to find out about parts and components for the suppliers market. The Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices“ organized by the IVAM Microtechnology Network in hall 8a was as well international as never before:

More than 10 exhibitors from ten nations showcased precision technologies, micro components, optical products and R&D and manufacturing services for medical devices on an area of 600m².

The experts’ forum attracted many visitors
The COMPAMED HIGH-TECH Forum, which was also hosted by IVAM in hall 8a, presented current technology trends of the suppliers’ industry and deepened questions about the showcased products. The big interest in the topics of the forum was reflected by a high number of visitors: approximately 1000 people joined the presentations about the medical market. Especially the session about “Printed Intelligence“ attracted an extraordinary amount of interest from the audience.
Personalized medicine and intelligent coatings
The exhibitors of the joint pavilion showed, for example functional coatings that are able to equip medical components with antimicrobial or biocompatible properties. Furthermore numerous sensor solutions were presented. With these, diagnostic methods can be used for personalized medicine and thereby, this technique can become more and more affordable. Apart from that, microsystems and -products were showcased, which were originally designed for other industries and which have enormous potentials for medical applications.
High level of satisfaction
The exhibiting companies and institutes were extremely satisfied, when departing from Dusseldorf after three days of trade show. “Almost all respondents think that the number of visitors in general and the quality of their leads is good or very good”, reports IVAM trade fair manager Orkide Karasu. “Again this year this high degree of satisfaction is reflected by the bookings for the year 2014.” Even before the COMPAMED 2013 started, the first companies wanted to reserve a booth for the year 2014 at the IVAM office. About one third of the exhibiting companies decided – due to their very good leads - already during the exhibition to participate again with a booth at the IVAM joint pavilion.

Im Focus: Frictional Heat Powers Hydrothermal Activity on Enceladus

Computer simulation shows how the icy moon heats water in a porous rock core

Heat from the friction of rocks caused by tidal forces could be the “engine” for the hydrothermal activity on Saturn's moon Enceladus. This presupposes that...

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
