COMPAMED presented high-tech solutions for product development and production of medical device

22.11.2012
The COMPAMED fair, which took place affiliated with the medical fair MEDICA in Dusseldorf, Germany in mid-November, again proved its position as leading market place for suppliers of medical parts and components.

More than 16.000 people from all over the world visited the halls 8a and 8b to find out about new products and latest trends of the suppliers market.

The joint pavilion of the IVAM Microtechnology Network in hall 8a was more extensive than ever before: 40 exhibitors from seven nations presented recent trends in development and manufacturing of medical devices and components at the Product Market "High-tech for Medical Devices".

The exhibitors of the joint pavilion showed, for example, microfluidic solutions and components for lap-on-a-chip applications, metrology for applications like tribological analysis or healthcare imaging as well as micro sensors for improved patient care. Furthermore, highly precise microstructures and -components, made of different materials like glass, plastics or metal were showcased.
These components and structures – it is possible for instance to manufacture a metal tube with an outer diameter of 0.1mm - enable a more cost-effective production of medical devices and consumer goods.

“The exhibitors of our pavilion are more than satisfied with the number of visitors and with the quality of their leads at this trade fair“, reports IVAM trade fair manager Orkide Karasu. “This high degree of satisfaction is reflected by numerous bookings for the upcoming year.

At the fair already ten companies, more than ever before, decided to exhibit again with IVAM in 2013. We have already filled a third of the whole Product Market. We expect that the joint pavilion will be sold out in January – just like it was the year before.”

At the COMPAMED HIGH-TECH forum, which was organized by the IVAM Microtechnology Network too, international experts from science and industry presented current trends of the suppliers’ industry and gave an outlook on future developments. Main topics were micro precision, quality assurance, electronic manufacturing services as well as laser and photonic applications.

The audience was particularly interested in the session "Miniaturized Electronics for Medical Products", which took place as a workshop and was presented and co-organized by the Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration IZM from Berlin.

Im Focus: Basel Physicists Develop Efficient Method of Signal Transmission from Nanocomponents

Physicists have developed an innovative method that could enable the efficient use of nanocomponents in electronic circuits. To achieve this, they have developed a layout in which a nanocomponent is connected to two electrical conductors, which uncouple the electrical signal in a highly efficient manner. The scientists at the Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel have published their results in the scientific journal “Nature Communications” together with their colleagues from ETH Zurich.

Electronic components are becoming smaller and smaller. Components measuring just a few nanometers – the size of around ten atoms – are already being produced...

Im Focus: First electrical car ferry in the world in operation in Norway now

  • Siemens delivers electric propulsion system and charging stations with lithium-ion batteries charged from hydro power
  • Ferry only uses 150 kilowatt hours (kWh) per route and reduces cost of fuel by 60 percent
  • Milestone on the road to operating emission-free ferries

The world's first electrical car and passenger ferry powered by batteries has entered service in Norway. The ferry only uses 150 kWh per route, which...

Im Focus: Into the ice – RV Polarstern opens the arctic season by setting course for Spitsbergen

On Tuesday, 19 May 2015 the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its home port in Bremerhaven, setting a course for the Arctic. Led by Dr Ilka Peeken from the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) a team of 53 researchers from 11 countries will investigate the effects of climate change in the Arctic, from the surface ice floes down to the seafloor.

RV Polarstern will enter the sea-ice zone north of Spitsbergen. Covering two shallow regions on their way to deeper waters, the scientists on board will focus...

Im Focus: Gel filled with nanosponges cleans up MRSA infections

Nanoengineers at the University of California, San Diego developed a gel filled with toxin-absorbing nanosponges that could lead to an effective treatment for skin and wound infections caused by MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), an antibiotic-resistant bacteria. This "nanosponge-hydrogel" minimized the growth of skin lesions on mice infected with MRSA - without the use of antibiotics. The researchers recently published their findings online in Advanced Materials.

To make the nanosponge-hydrogel, the team mixed nanosponges, which are nanoparticles that absorb dangerous toxins produced by MRSA, E. coli and other...
