COMPAMED showed technology trends for the medical suppliers’ industry

24.11.2011
The IVAM Product Market „High-tech for Medical Devices“ at the COMPAMED trade show in Dusseldorf has attracted many business professionals again this year. Around 16,000 visitors attended the supplier market of medical technology manufacturing in order to discover high-tech products and services from the field of medical technology.

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.

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...

Im Focus: Lining up surprising behaviors of superconductor with one of the world's strongest magnets

Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur

What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...
