Novel CVD-based growth process for zinc oxide layers

At the University of Ulm, a cost-effective deposition process for zinc oxide (ZnO) layers has been developed that provides very good layer qualities and permits a high growth rate. Source material is zinc oxide, no elementary zinc is required. Using this innovative CVD-based process, it is possible without the addition of environmentally-harmful additives, to create weakly-conductive layers, easily etchable sacrificial layers in multi-layer systems, conductive transparent layers (transparent conductive oxide, TCO) and generally conductive contacts or conductor structures on fixed-body substrates such as sapphire, silicon, silicon carbide or gallium nitride. Furthermore, this process is suitable for generating nano- or microstructures for sensor applications, thin-film transistors (TFT on displays), Schottky diodes, and field effect transistors. 08.12.2016 | nachricht Read more

Microarray to determine responsiveness of tumors to antiangiogenic treatment

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most frequently occurring cancer in both sexes. It ranks second in developed countries. Tumor growth beyond the critical two to three millimeter diameter and metastasis require angiogenesis. Therefore, in later tumor stages, antiangiogenic treatment offers a strategy that has been shown in clinic to improve outcomes in patients with advanced or metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). Today, several antiangiogenic drugs for tumor therapeutic application have been approved, e.g. Bevacizumab (Avastin®), Cetuximab (Erbitux®) or Panitumumab (Vectibix®). Nevertheless, 20% of the patients do not respond and are resistant to antiangiogenic therapy. This invention provides a method which allows to further improve the efficacy of antiangiogenic therapy in colorectal cancer (CRC). This is achieved by detection and exclusion of patients, which are in a therapy resistant tumor stage. 06.12.2016 | nachricht Read more

Peltier Adsorption Trap

The present invention uses a Peltier cooling instead of the usual nitrogen cooling and therefore shows an improved separation device for impurities, especially gaseous impurities, and, com-pared to the state of art, an improved pump device. 29.11.2016 | nachricht Read more

Innovative method for producing analytical suspension cell lines

Analytical cell-based assays used in diverse applications such as the risk assessment of chemicals and the investigation of stem cell propagation stages, currently employ adherent cell lines. This cell type comes with serious drawbacks. Most importantly, extensive measures are needed for propagation purposes. Intriguingly, scientists at RWTH Aachen University have invented a method of stably growing any analytical (reporter) cell line in suspension. This enables high cell density growth and bulk applications towards tissue engineering, as well as toxicity testing. Furthermore, the method profoundly enhances high-throughput screening efficiency. 24.11.2016 | nachricht Read more

Efficiency increase for ORC power plants

Determining the presence of an analyte by means of small magnetic particles

The in the invention described technology allows the parallel detection of several analytes in a liquid test sample with the help of functionalized magnetic particles. In comparison to conventional optical read-out technologies this technology offers a high robustness, low material costs and the possibility of in-vivo measurements while obtaining an equivalent sensitivity. 17.11.2016 | nachricht Read more

Power Drive for Hybrid Vehicles

PD-HyVec has the task to integrate a small combustion engine efficiently into the drive train and to produce a real single wheel drive, at least for the front wheels. The PD-HyVec offers a cost-effective topology for the realization of a hybrid vehicle. Due to the continuous operation of the combustion engine in the optimum working point, PD-HyVec has a high efficiency. The concept allows the drive of only one axle, but also a real all-wheel drive, whereby all four wheels can be individually controlled. An implementation with more than two axes is also conceivable. A German patent application has been filed On behalf of the TH Köln – University of Applied Sciences - we offer interested companies the opportunity to license and further develop the technology. 14.11.2016 | nachricht Read more
