Germany's northeastern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern expands its international contacts in the healthcare sector.
For this purpose the life sciences initiative of MV BioCon Valley® prepared a business atlas in which the competencies of the region in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of the lifestyle disease Diabetes mellitus is combined.The atlas is published in English and Arabic language with profiles of companies, hospitals, universities and research institutes from MV. It was presented to the international public for the first time at the Arab health 2012 in Dubai.
Products and Services "Made in Germany" enjoy a high reputation there. In particular, the skills of the country in the field of diabetes treatment fits to the high demand in the Arab countries. According to the Ministry of Health in Dubai about a quarter of the adult indigenous population suffers diabetes, local doctors say even more than 50 percent.
Mecklenburg-Vorpommern on the other hand has a more than 80-year tradition in diabetes research and treatment. As one of the first institutions worldwide a diabetes hospital was founded in 1930 on the island of Rügen. Today's competence centers in the country include e.g. the Heart and Diabetes Center Hospital of Karlsburg, the Institute for Diabetes "Gerald Katsch" e.V. in Karlsburg , the University of Rostock, the Infocom GmbH in Neubrandenburg, the EUROIMMUN Medical Laboratory Diagnostics AG, Lübeck / Dassow, or the Medigreif Island Hospital Heringsdorf.The production of the atlas was supported by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Construction and Tourism of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany.

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.
Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
