Modern In vitro Diagnostics at the BIOTECHNICA 2011
The Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT, Branch Potsdam-Golm, will be exhibiting its research tools in in vitro diagnostics at the BIOTECHNICA 2011 held between October 11-13, 2011 in Hannover.
The Fraunhofer IBMT as one of the six institutes within the Fraunhofer Group of Life Sciences is a provider of in vitro diagnostics (ivD) related research and development tools.
Among its services, the whole value chain from biomarker to a marketable ivD-platform can be covered. Starting with a collection of biospecimen (cyrotechnology) and access via a metadatabase (CRIP) to a multiply of pathologies around Europe the Fraunhofer IBMT starts to find biomarker for different indications.
Having a biomarker, different assay development tools combining sensor technology, microarray techniques and different platforms (lab-on-a-chip) can be chosen to obtain a marketable diagnostic test.

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,...
