Fraunhofer IBMT presents Ultrasound Technology and Mobile Lab Technologies at IAA 2015

26.08.2015

Ultrasound technologies in vehicles of all kinds and the conceptual design of mobile laboratories are core competencies of the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT. The working areas “Technical Ultrasound” and “Laboratory Technology” present their competences exhibiting a model of a Pick-Up with a laboratory van body at IAA 2015.

The use of ultrasound in vehicles of all kinds is one of the focuses of the department of ”Technical Ultrasound“ at the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT. Sensors and systems are developed for distance monitoring and obstacle detection (parking assistant), for flow metering (exhaust), for level metering and fuel characterization (tank) as well as for interior monitoring (burglary prevention).

Furthermore, another core competence of the Fraunhofer IBMT is the conceptual design of mobile laboratories. The whole service from conceptual design to consulting and support during implementation to operating of the laboratory is offered by the business area “Laboratory Technology”.

“Technical Ultrasound” and “Laboratory Technology” present their competences exhibiting a model of a Pick-Up with a laboratory van body.

Since more than 30 years the department of “Technical Ultrasound” deals with the use of ultrasound in different fields of application. From simulation-based concept to ready-to-go into production, the whole spectrum of sensor, electronic and software development is offered. In automotive applications, ultrasound systems for cars and trucks are developed. The applications range from low-cost units for the bumper (parking assistant) to complex units for level metering in hydrogen tanks (fuel cell).

Furthermore, Fraunhofer IBMT is strongly involved in the field of mobile laboratories since 2005. Starting with the design and development of units for its 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 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.

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
