Patenting in Europe

Innovation in medical technologies is booming. That is why MEDICA and COMPAMED attract such huge audiences each year, and an increasing number of exhibitors. New technologies are combining material science, electronics, engineering and biochemistry. With an increasing number of us living longer, the market for healthcare appliances has ever greater potential. Read more about patenting of medical technologies

Technique allows ultrasound to penetrate bone, metal

28/11/2014 - Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a technique that allows ultrasound to penetrate bone or metal, using customized structures that offset the distortion usually caused by these so-called "aberrating layers." read more

Membrane reduces scarring in damaged blood vessels

27/11/2014 - When blood vessels are damaged through surgery, it can trigger an endless cycle of scarring and repair. Now, a new surgical membrane delivers the healing action of vitamin A. read more

Novel metamaterial properties within hexagonal boron nitride

26/11/2014 - U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) scientists have demonstrated that confined surface phonon polaritons within hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) exhibit unique metamaterial properties that enable novel nanoscale optical devices for use in optical communications, super-resolution imaging and improved infrared cameras and detectors. read more

New imaging technique identifies receptors for targeted cancer therapy

20/11/2014 - Dartmouth researchers have developed a fluorescence imaging technique that can more accurately identify receptors for targeted cancer therapies without a tissue biopsy. They report on their findings in "Quantitative in vivo immunohistochemistry of epidermal growth factor receptor using a receptor concentration imaging approach". read more

First genetic-based tool to detect circulating cancer cells in blood

19/11/2014 - Metastasis is bad news for cancer patients. Northwestern University scientists now have demonstrated a simple but powerful tool that can detect live cancer cells in the bloodstream, potentially long before the cells could settle somewhere in the body and form a dangerous tumor. read more

Bern software analyses brain tumors at lightning speed

18/11/2014 - Faster than the doctor, but equally meticulous and free of charge: the Bern computer program BRaTumIA for the recognition of malignant brain tumors is proving to be an international hit. The fully automatic computer program requires a maximum of 10 minutes per patient for the analysis of the magnetic resonance image of a brain tumor. A doctor requires between 30 and 60 minutes, however. read more

Thermomagnetic processing method provides path to new materials

13/11/2014 - For much the same reason LCD televisions offer eye-popping performance, a thermomagnetic processing method developed at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory can advance the performance of polymers. read more

On the Trail of Proteins

12/11/2014 - Scientists from Heidelberg University in collaboration with researchers from the University of Gießen have succeeded in electrochemically detecting protein binding on semiconductor materials for the first time, thanks to a newly developed investigative method based on differences in electrical charge. read more

'Swiss cheese' membrane with adjustable holes

07/11/2014 - A new membrane, developed by University of Twente scientists, can be made more or less porous ‘on demand’. In this way, smart switching between ‘open’ and ‘closed’ is possible, which opens the way to innovative applications in biosensors, chemical analysis and catalysis. read more

A medical lab for the home

05/11/2014 - Fraunhofer FIT demonstrates a mobile wireless system that monitors the health of elderly people in their own homes, using miniature sensors. Besides non-invasive sensors this platform integrates technology to take a blood sample and to determine specific markers in the patient's blood. read more
