Silk of green lacewings for medical technology

Dear Sir or Madam,

Whether it is spider silk or the wings of a cicada – research can learn many things from nature. As this is also the case with the green lacewing. It puts its eggs on very bend-resistant stems that show a high elasticity and tensile strength. It is already possible to artificially replicate these egg stems. Read more about this in our current Interview with Martin Schmidt.

Have a wonderful day!

Researchers have often "looked over nature’s shoulder", sometimes with amazing results. Now the lacewing was given this honor. The way they put their eggs on bend-resistant stems, researchers want to use for new films, globules or capsules. COMPAMED has asked how far the process has progressed.

Medical device design: usability is everything

Special

Aesthetics isn't all there is. When it comes to medical devices, safety, reliability, and usability are far more important. After all, potential users of these products not only include medical experts but frequently also patients at home. That’s why it is important to factor in the usability of the product in the early stages of development.
