COMPAMED is holding on to its position as international leading market place for medical devices

02.12.2013
The COMPAMED, co-located to the world’s biggest medical fair MEDICA in Dusseldorf, Germany, confirmed again its leading position as international market place for medical manufacturing.

Almost 17.000 international guests, most of them from abroad, came to the halls 8a and 8b to find out about parts and components for the suppliers market. The Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices“ organized by the IVAM Microtechnology Network in hall 8a was as well international as never before:

More than 10 exhibitors from ten nations showcased precision technologies, micro components, optical products and R&D and manufacturing services for medical devices on an area of 600m².

The experts’ forum attracted many visitors
The COMPAMED HIGH-TECH Forum, which was also hosted by IVAM in hall 8a, presented current technology trends of the suppliers’ industry and deepened questions about the showcased products. The big interest in the topics of the forum was reflected by a high number of visitors: approximately 1000 people joined the presentations about the medical market. Especially the session about “Printed Intelligence“ attracted an extraordinary amount of interest from the audience.
Personalized medicine and intelligent coatings
The exhibitors of the joint pavilion showed, for example functional coatings that are able to equip medical components with antimicrobial or biocompatible properties. Furthermore numerous sensor solutions were presented. With these, diagnostic methods can be used for personalized medicine and thereby, this technique can become more and more affordable. Apart from that, microsystems and -products were showcased, which were originally designed for other industries and which have enormous potentials for medical applications.
High level of satisfaction
The exhibiting companies and institutes were extremely satisfied, when departing from Dusseldorf after three days of trade show. “Almost all respondents think that the number of visitors in general and the quality of their leads is good or very good”, reports IVAM trade fair manager Orkide Karasu. “Again this year this high degree of satisfaction is reflected by the bookings for the year 2014.” Even before the COMPAMED 2013 started, the first companies wanted to reserve a booth for the year 2014 at the IVAM office. About one third of the exhibiting companies decided – due to their very good leads - already during the exhibition to participate again with a booth at the IVAM joint pavilion.

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
