Modern In vitro Diagnostics at the BIOTECHNICA 2011

05.10.2011
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.

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...
