Medical device manufacturers from Europe and Asia are popular suppliers of components in the USA

19.02.2019

With a share of around 30% of the world market, the United States are currently the largest market for medical devices and components. With 20,000 visitors, the MD&M West exhibition in Anaheim, California, is one of the world's largest marketplaces for design and manufacturing in medical technology.

For the sixth time in a row, the IVAM Microtechnology Network was part of the trade show by presenting the special exhibition area "Micro Nanotech", where international high-tech component manufacturers were bundled.

IVAM

Micro Nano Tech-Area showed various innovations

Both companies and research institutes took the opportunity to showcase their products and services to the international audience.

The product variety on-site ranged from high-end chip-level technologies, microfluidic cartridges, precision motors and the world's smallest digital camera to neuroimplants, innovative catheters, micro-molding solutions and state-of-the-art implants design to a compact device for emergency and lifesaving trainings. Several exhibitors presented miniaturized pumps that can dispense extremely tiny amounts of liquid with high precision.

"America First"? Decisions are made pragmatically according to economic interests

The MD&M West 2019 was a successful exhibition for the IVAM exhibitors. They described both the quantity and the quality of the leads as excellent.

IVAM Managing Director Thomas Dietrich was extremely satisfied with the way the fair went: "After the announcement of an America-First policy by the US government, there were, concerns if the United States would remain an attractive market for international medical device companies.

However, our local experience shows that these worries were unnecessary. Export-oriented countries such as Germany and Japan, but also other European countries, are still welcome suppliers of high-tech products. Decisions are made pragmatically according to economic interests."

In addition to the officially organized appointments during the exhibition, the networking events, this year for example a happy hour and a networking dinner, have proven to be extremely important for establishing and maintaining contacts between international companies.

For 2020, IVAM already reserved an area for the joint stand. The first exhibitors have directly renewed their participation. Further information can be found on the IVAM website at https://www.ivam.de/events/md_m_west_2020.

Im Focus: New double-contrast technique picks up small tumors on MRI

Early detection of tumors is extremely important in treating cancer. A new technique developed by researchers at the University of California, Davis offers a significant advance in using magnetic resonance imaging to pick out even very small tumors from normal tissue. The work is published May 25 in the journal Nature Nanotechnology.

Im Focus: I-call - When microimplants communicate with each other / Innovation driver digitization - "Smart Health“

Microelectronics as a key technology enables numerous innovations in the field of intelligent medical technology. The Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT coordinates the BMBF cooperative project "I-call" realizing the first electronic system for ultrasound-based, safe and interference-resistant data transmission between implants in the human body.

When microelectronic systems are used for medical applications, they have to meet high requirements in terms of biocompatibility, reliability, energy...

Im Focus: When predictions of theoretical chemists become reality

Thomas Heine, Professor of Theoretical Chemistry at TU Dresden, together with his team, first predicted a topological 2D polymer in 2019. Only one year later, an international team led by Italian researchers was able to synthesize these materials and experimentally prove their topological properties. For the renowned journal Nature Materials, this was the occasion to invite Thomas Heine to a News and Views article, which was published this week. Under the title "Making 2D Topological Polymers a reality" Prof. Heine describes how his theory became a reality.

Im Focus: Rolling into the deep

Scientists took a leukocyte as the blueprint and developed a microrobot that has the size, shape and moving capabilities of a white blood cell. Simulating a blood vessel in a laboratory setting, they succeeded in magnetically navigating the ball-shaped microroller through this dynamic and dense environment. The drug-delivery vehicle withstood the simulated blood flow, pushing the developments in targeted drug delivery a step further: inside the body, there is no better access route to all tissues and organs than the circulatory system. A robot that could actually travel through this finely woven web would revolutionize the minimally-invasive treatment of illnesses.

A team of scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) in Stuttgart invented a tiny microrobot that resembles a white blood cell...

Im Focus: NASA's Curiosity rover finds clues to chilly ancient Mars buried in rocks

By studying the chemical elements on Mars today -- including carbon and oxygen -- scientists can work backwards to piece together the history of a planet that once had the conditions necessary to support life.

Weaving this story, element by element, from roughly 140 million miles (225 million kilometers) away is a painstaking process. But scientists aren't the type...
