Exhibitors Confident in the Run-Up to BIOTECHNICA

17.06.2010
– Chris Viehbacher, sanofi-aventis CEO, to open BIOTECHNICA
– Event centres on enhanced mix of exhibition and conferences
– Focus topics: Regenerative medicine, molecular diagnostics, bioinformatics and protein engineering

The biotech industry is setting its sights on Hannover, where exhibitors and visitors from all over the world will convene this autumn at BIOTECHNICA 2010 from 5 to 7 October. “BIOTECHNICA will showcase an array of innovations from the cutting-edge fields of biotechnology and life sciences,” reports Stephan Ph. Kühne, Board member of Deutsche Messe AG. A plethora of small, highly specialized firms will exhibit in Hannover alongside numerous companies and industry leaders, including Eppendorf, Qiagen, Sartorius and Thermo Fisher Scientific. “Exhibitors are confident that coming to Hannover will further boost sales, and they want to use BIOTECHNICA for that purpose,” adds Kühne. The trade fair will be complemented by an extensive conference program involving more than 500 international speakers from science, industry and politics.

Chris Viehbacher, sanofi-aventis CEO, will open the event on 4 October alongside Jörg Bode, Lower Saxony’s Minister of Industry, Labour and Transport, and Dr. Maharaj Kishan Bhan, Secretary of the Department of Biotechnology within the Indian Ministry of Science and Technology. John Dalli, European Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy, is also expected to be in Hannover for BIOTECHNICA. What’s more, as part of the opening celebration, the EUROPEAN BIOTECHNICA AWARD will be presented for the eighth time by Deutsche Messe AG. The award is worth 75,000 euros and is aimed at European biotech and life science companies that boast both innovative strength and market success.

The trade fair focuses on biotech applications in the fields of medicine, pharmaceuticals, food, agriculture, industry and environmental protection, plus bioengineering, lab equipment and services. “The bandwidth of products at this year’s BIOTECHNICA is important for the biotech industry,” says Viola Bronsema, Executive Secretary of the Federation of the German Biotechnology Industry. The combination of exhibition, partnering and high-calibre conference program presents an excellent opportunity to showcase products and services, discuss cooperations and business models, and catch up with the latest scientific know-how. “Anyone looking for the cutting-edge trends, innovations and ideas will find all these and more at BIOTECHNICA,” stresses Board member Kühne. The event will have a stronger focus on bioinformatics, R&D technology and lab and process technology. It will also be closely oriented to the pharmaceuticals industry, and as such will underpin dialogue with the biotech sector. For the first time, there will be a special show billed as “Pharmatech”.

A flexible concept ensures BIOTECHNICA’s success
BIOTECHNICA is a firm date among many big-name exhibitors, and the place where they meet customers and partners from all over the world, exchange know-how and obtain a broad overview of the industry’s latest trends. A high level of flexibility is the key to BIOTECHNICA’s successful concept: “As market demands change, so the event continually evolves to reflect this,” explains Kühne. “As a result of our proximity to the industry, we can pick up on vibrations and integrate them into the existing trade fair concept in a manner appropriate to the target group. We act as the industry’s trend seismograph.”
Extensive conference program complements the expo
The exhibition and conferences will be interlinked even more closely this year. Indeed, the conference topics reflect the focal points of the exhibition and are accompanied by measures such as special shows in the halls. Preventive and regenerative medicine will play a key role. For the first time, the 5th World Congress on Preventive and Regenerative Medicine (WCPRM) will be held during BIOTECHNICA, with more than 800 scientists and clinical experts from around the world expected to attend.

A further premiere will be a conference and special exhibition entitled “Molecular Diagnostics Europe”, organized by BIOTECHNICA in partnership with the Cambridge Healthtech Institute (CHI) in America. It will focus on new methods and tools in this field.

The key topic of Bioinformatics will be expanded to include a comprehensive series of lectures and an accompanying exhibition dealing with applied bioinformatics methods. The “PEGS Europe” conference will examine new techniques and methods of protein expression and purification and antibody development. Additional core subjects will be food markets of the future and food production, molecular food analysis, stem cells, biobanks, forensics and finance options for biotech companies. “BIOTECHNICA Partnering” promises to open doors to new business areas and the right partners, while the “jobvector career day” will shed light on job prospects in the life sciences industry.

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...

Im Focus: Repairing defects in fiber-reinforced plastics more efficiently

Fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) are frequently used in the aeronautic and automobile industry. However, the repair of workpieces made of these composite materials is often less profitable than exchanging the part. In order to increase the lifetime of FRP parts and to make them more eco-efficient, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) and the Apodius GmbH want to combine a new measuring device for fiber layer orientation with an innovative laser-based repair process.

Defects in FRP pieces may be production or operation-related. Whether or not repair is cost-effective depends on the geometry of the defective area, the tools...
