The variety of COMPAMED 2014

COMPAMED in its variety shows once again that it lives up to visitor expectations

Photo: Microspec tubes
No limit of possibilities – the smallest tubes for neonatology or pit catheters. The special combination of nylon, highdensity polyethylene and a tie layer are extra flexible and durable (yellow tube). The thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) have the processing abilities of thermoplastics and performance like thermoset rubber, but they have greater biocompatibility than rubber.

Cicor wins with Valedo the DeviceMed Award in the Outsourcing Partner category. Valedo was especially developed for the long-term promotion of back health and should help to prevent back pain. Two Bluetooth sensors record the movements of the patient's back and transmit the data to a virtual game world. The patients get feedback in real time on whether the exercise was performed correctly. The sensors each contain a 3D gyroscope, a 3D accelerometer and a 3D magnetometer and so can record full 360 degree movements.

The new smart syringe pump of the American based manufacturer Parker is a long life, high precision pump which allows direct mounting at the point of dispense eliminating the need for a transfer line. The pump is ideal for applications such as in-vitro diagnostics, hematology, molecular diagnostics, flow cytometry, genomics, proteomics, liquid handling, sample preparation, chromatography and precision flow control.

First time exhibitor envisiontec presents at COMPAMED its 3D bioplotter which as rapid prototyping tool is suitable for tissue engineering. Materials may range from viscous paste to free-flowing liquid, and are inserted using syringes moving in three dimensions. In this picture a soft hydrogel polymer is at use.

Filters, sieves, needles and material surfaces – precise photo acid etching for the medical industries is what the company micrometal displays at this year´s COMPAMED. The chemical milling line inline is capable of processing metal in thicknesses ranging from 0.025 mm to 0.500 mm.
Photo: Special precision pumps
The special precision pumps work precise and repeatable without valves and with a precision within 0.5 percent. The enhanced gears and shaft bearings have been optimized to ensure a long, trouble-free life and very low power consumption.

Ulma FM 300 flow rapper machine equipped with a box motion sealing head and with medical paper applicator device and laser cutting for package sterilization. For identification a labeling and printing system is installed.
Photo: Customized electronic systems
As a solutions provider Siemens provides at COMPAMED customized electronic systems and high performance imaging solutions.
Photo: Aluminium frame
Glass bead blasted this aluminium frame which was then anodized in silver. Exeptional stability and heat dissipation pinpoint of its special features which are not least its design.
Photo: One service one provider
One service one provider – this too is presented at COMPAMED. Companies like Rafi Eltec provide support from the idea up to the end product.
