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

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
