Messe Düsseldorf and exhibitors make valuable contribution to COVID 19 vaccination campaign
COMPAMED 2021, the international leading trade fair for the supplier market for medical manufacturing, will be held in parallel with the world’s leading medical trade fair MEDICA 2021 in Halls 13 and 14, and not Halls 8a and 8b as originally planned, at the Düsseldorf trade fair centre from 15 to 18 November. By moving the event to new halls, Messe Düsseldorf is meeting the wishes of the federal state government of North Rhine-Westphalia, namely to ensure that they can continue to use the north area of the trade fair centre for activities in conjunction with vaccine logistics and infrastructure for this federal state.
COMPAMED trade visitors come from the world's most important markets. And experience a diversity that is unique in the world. A comprehensive range of components, parts, services, digital technologies and more that will create the medical technology of tomorrow.
Visitors to COMPAMED are the specialists who matter. The COMPAMED attracts various target groups:
Heads of research and development departments
Engineers and technicians for R&D and production departments
Technical procurement managers
Medical technology exhibitors of MEDICA
Qualification and validation specialists
A high level of internationality, visitors from the key world markets, high levels of decision-making expertise, many medical engineering exhibitors from MEDICA as visitors to COMPAMED from 62 countries of the world, of which 92% are involved in acquisition decisions: These are the reasons why the exhibitors at COMPAMED are very satisfied and impressed by the professional level of the visitors.

Breathe in, breathe out. That’s how easy it is for SARS-CoV-2 to enter your nose. And though remarkable progress has been made in developing intramuscular vaccines against SARS-CoV- 2 nothing yet – like a nasal vaccine – has been approved to provide mucosal immunity in the nose, the first barrier against the virus before it travels down to the lungs.
MIT researchers have developed a new method to 3D print mechanisms that detect how force is being applied to an object. The structures are made from a single piece of material, so they can be rapidly prototyped. A designer could use this method to 3D print “interactive input devices,” like a joystick, switch, or handheld controller, in one go.
Researchers at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) and Freie Universität Berlin have developed a new, simple approach for generating terahertz radiation. Strong optical laser pulses enable terahertz electromagnetic fields to be generated directly at a specific point.
