Mobile laboratories are a key competence of the network "Labor der Zukunft" (future's lab technology) where stakeholders with different background cooperate in the field of modern lab technology. Fraunhofer IBMT and THIEMT are members of the German association “Labor der Zukunft” representing the mobile laboratory field of the initiative at ArabLab 2015, March 23-26, in Dubai, UAE. THIEMT is presenting its competences in planning and realization of laboratories and buildings in the framework of the "German Pavillon" (booth number 537). Fraunhofer IBMT is showcasing at this booth a model of its mobile BSL-3 unit currently operated in the Western Cap province, Republic of South Africa.
Fraunhofer IBMT is strongly involved in the field of mobile laboratories since 2005. Starting with the design and development of units for it’s own use, this field of work matured over the last decade within several projects.
Today Fraunhofer IBMT is mainly working in the area of consulting and conceptual design of mobile analytical and medical solutions for third parties. Together with Bischoff+Scheck AG, THIEMT and other partners from the network “Labor der Zukunft”, Fraunhofer IBMT offers solutions made to measure including selection of suitable instruments and manufacturers. Fraunhofer IBMT is also operating a mobile BSL-2 unit for the German environmental specimen bank ESB since 2013.
THIEMT has been busy in Middle East since 2009 and during this period has successfully performed diverse projects in the areas of planning, project management, consulting and realization. In 2012 THIEMT opened its own Representative Office in Bahrain. THIEMT is actively participating at the ArabLab for the fourth time; this year for the first time accompanied and supported by the Fraunhofer IMBT as academic partner.
About Fraunhofer IBMT
The Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT acts as device and technology developer when it comes to the solution of individual research and development projects and tasks from the areas of biomedical/medical engineering, molecular and cellular biotechnology, biohybrid technology, cryo(bio)technology and nano(bio)technology, ultrasound technology, neuroprosthetics/implants, (mobile) laboratory technology, sensor and measurement technology, health telematics, environmental control systems, material testing, home systems, air quality control and security systems as well as laboratory automation including in-line/on-line process control. For more than 10 years Fraunhofer IBMT works in the field of stem cell research and hosts extensive cell line stocks in industrial and clinically structured biobanks for low temperature storage of valuable samples (fluids, cells, tissue fragments).
THIEMT plans and implements small and large laboratories, with or without building. Depending on demand, a laboratory sectoral planning or a general planning incl. building and heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) can be offered. According to project and customer request, THIEMT accompanies the project as an independent planner or realizes it within a joint venture. Thereby THIEMT deals with the project management and/or as system supplier with the supply and installation of laboratory furniture and equipment.
About "Labor der Zukunft"
The association “Labor der Zukunft” (future's lab technology) was founded on February 3, 2014. It originates in a technology initiative lead by Fraunhofer IBMT and funded by the State Chancellery of Germany’s Saarland. Partners from different industrial sectors and research fields got together to foster new technological trends for modern laboratories.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
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:...
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...
