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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Studying fundamental particles in materials

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...
