In-vitro-Diagnostic: Systems for Patient-near Testing

04.11.2011
Within an internally funded project named "Fraunhofer ivD-Platform" a credit card-sized lab-on-chip system could be established which enables the patient-near analysis of up to 500 different parameters from a drop of blood.

Hence, complicated patient-near sampling and testing can be performed. Via the use of information and communication technologies the system is mobile and can be used in a variety of different scenarios.

The Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT, Branch Potsdam-Golm, together with different collaborators will be presenting its research development in point of care testing on this years' MEDICA (16.-19. November, Düsseldorf, Hall 10 Stand F05).

First applications of the system are in intensive care and emergency medicine as well as screenings and therapy control. In addition, as a technology platform also other analyses can be transferred onto the system. At the end of the project all partners are available at the booth on november,17, 2011 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Im Focus: Small particles, big effects: How graphene nanoparticles improve the resolution of microscopes

Conventional light microscopes cannot distinguish structures when they are separated by a distance smaller than, roughly, the wavelength of light. Superresolution microscopy, developed since the 1980s, lifts this limitation, using fluorescent moieties. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research have now discovered that graphene nano-molecules can be used to improve this microscopy technique. These graphene nano-molecules offer a number of substantial advantages over the materials previously used, making superresolution microscopy even more versatile.

Microscopy is an important investigation method, in physics, biology, medicine, and many other sciences. However, it has one disadvantage: its resolution is...

Im Focus: Atoms don't like jumping rope

Nanooptical traps are a promising building block for quantum technologies. Austrian and German scientists have now removed an important obstacle to their practical use. They were able to show that a special form of mechanical vibration heats trapped particles in a very short time and knocks them out of the trap.

By controlling individual atoms, quantum properties can be investigated and made usable for technological applications. For about ten years, physicists have...

Im Focus: Images from NJIT's big bear solar observatory peel away layers of a stellar mystery

An international team of scientists, including three researchers from New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), has shed new light on one of the central mysteries of solar physics: how energy from the Sun is transferred to the star's upper atmosphere, heating it to 1 million degrees Fahrenheit and higher in some regions, temperatures that are vastly hotter than the Sun's surface.

With new images from NJIT's Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO), the researchers have revealed in groundbreaking, granular detail what appears to be a likely...
