The exhibitors of the joint pavilion of the IVAM Microtechnology Network, for instance, presented advanced materials and material compounds with extremely high resistance, which can be used as high-quality mirrors and reflectors after diamond processing. Laser manufacturers displayed laser processing systems for welding and cutting medical stents.
Another focus has been on the aspect of quality control. Suppliers of measuring systems introduced new contact-less measuring devices with a vertical resolution reaching into the nanometer range. Altogether, the products and services of the IVAM exhibitors covered almost all areas of the value added chain. The Product Market presented a cross-section of medical device high-tech, including system development, customized OEM modules, and turn-key devices.
On the established forum „High-tech for Medical Devices“, 42 experts from ten nations introduced technology trends of the suppliers’ industry in more than 40 presentations. The experts addressed topics such as micro- and nano-sized surface structures and their specific functionalities, piezo drives, microfluidic devices, life sciences and innovative diagnostic products.
In a Russia session with simultaneous translation, experts from Russia and Germany discussed, among other things, the obstacles of clinical trial of medical devices and the required quality assurance of medical products. The session also presented current trends and activities on the European market.
"Our exhibitors had many high-quality and promising business talks this year. Due to the successful trade show, five exhibitors have decided on the spot to take part again in 2012 ", IVAM CEO Heinz-Peter Hippler comments on the high quality of visitors at the IVAM Product Market.

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.
The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...
A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.
Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
