The Fraunhofer Research Institution for Microsystems and Solid State Technologies EMFT micropumps meet a wide range of requirements in the field of medical technology. The silicon pump models with a minimum size of 3.5 x 3.5 x 0.6 mm3 and high pressure abilities enable new products in the field of diabetes, tumor, hormone or pain therapy systems as well as implants.

The larger stainless steel micropumps are mainly used in infusion and vacuum therapy for the treatment of chronic wounds. The piezoelectrically driven pumps are self-priming, bubble tolerant and sterilizable.

HNP Mikrosysteme GmbH provides precise pumps and smart solutions and offers the development of OEM pumps, comprehensive application-specific consulting and technical support. The company produces micro annular gear pumps, which are used where fast and highly precise dosage is required.

Five series guarantee a flow rate from 1 µl/h to 1152 ml/min. HNP offers mzr-pumps which are characterized by low pulse delivery, minimal dead volume, long service life, small dimensions, powerful materials and ease of maintenance. The products can be applied amongst others in the field of life science and analytical instrumentation.

Micro Systems (UK) Ltd. is a specialist in medical, biotech and optical micro-molding solutions, including molds, plastic parts and complete systems for drug delivery, medical diagnostics, surgery and inhalation. Further capabilities include ultra-precision multicavity molds and nanostructuring, manufacturing in high and medium quantities to suit customer requirements.

microLIQUID S.L. has positioned itself mainly in the areas of OEM and ODM of microfluidic cartridges and instruments, IVD and bioscience and cell culture over the last few years. The company’s provides capabilities spanning the entire value chain. microLIQUID proves itself as a one-stop provider of end-to-end bioscience solutions.

Starting with design and proof of concept, the company works with partners from development to mass production of potentially fully certified IVD or pharma products. Having worked on thousands of research and development projects as well as on large-scale ones, microLIQUID provides a unique combination of skills.

Osypka Medtec Inc. is an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and is dedicated to working with medical device manufacturers and suppliers to manufacture innovative, high-quality product solutions.

The company provides device technology using the latest state-of-the-art design, manufacturing equipment and methods to meet customers’ expectations, while maintaining compliance with regulations and industrial standards. Osypka has the capability to design, develop, validate and manufacture finished medical implants, including AIMD.

Penguin System Co., Ltd. will present its EmerSim device at the fair. EmerSim is a compact device for emergency and lifesaving training aiming to increase the number of successful emergency responses.

It simulates the vital sign monitor using only a dummy and LCD monitor, TV, notebook, tablet or smartphone. With Penguin System’s EmerSim, low-cost training preparation can be achieved. The instructor can change the monitor's signs with a single tap on a preset vital sign set. Blinking values, alarm sound and responsive vital sign monitor create training situations with presence of emergency.
