Fraunhofer IBMT presents its actual spin-off BioKryo GmbH on the Medica 2010

09.11.2010
The BioKryo Company offers the cryostorage of therapeutically and diagnostically valuable biological samples, like stem cells and tissues. The spin-off of the Fraunhofer-Institute for Biomedical Engineering (IBMT) can look at 10 years of experience in cryotechnology and stem cell research.

Our customers of biotechnology and pharmaceutics benefit from our cryogenic storage, which they can use to store valuable cell lines as a backup.

On the Medica 2010, BioKryo GmbH will present the System “Lighthouse” for automated identification and registration of cryopreserved samples.

In combination with the intelligent vials from the PermaCryoTechnology GmbH, this system supports e. g. the shipment and logistic of these samples in a cold environment. The documentation of this process occurs automatically in a special database.

Together with other cooperation partners, the BioKryo GmbH additionally provides diagnostic and logistic services like the HLA-typification or worldwide sample shipping.

With cryostorage, using liquid nitrogen, biological samples are stored at a temperature of -150°C. This is the temperature range in which metabolic activities of living cells stop, thus enabling the storage of these cells beyond a human life cycle for later therapeutic use.

Please find the BioKryo in Hall 10 / F05 on the Medica 2010.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
