New Medical Device Regulation

Dear Sir or Madam,

Now it will not be long before the new European Medical Device Regulation comes into force. Can you stay calm on this topic? Then you are probably well prepared. In our current special, we have once again looked into this exciting and hotly debated topic.

Have fun reading!

PS: Is there an idea for a new medical device that has been going through your head for quite some time, but you are not getting anywhere? For such and similar situations, the OTH Amberg-Weiden has now opened an innovation laboratory for medical technology. How it works and what plans the makers have for the future, you can learn in our interview.

Smartwatches sense hand activity

We've become accustomed to our smartwatches and smartphones sensing what our bodies are doing, be it walking, driving or sleeping. But what about our hands? It turns out that smartwatches, with a few tweaks, can detect a surprising number of things your hands are doing.

The new MDR and its implementation

Special

The new Medical Device Regulation of the EU should bring more patient safety. The medical technology manufacturers also think that is good. But so far, they are rather annoyed by the sluggish implementation and unclear answers from Brussels.

Materials & Production

Water creates traps in organic electronics

Poor-quality organic semiconductors can become high-quality semiconductors when manufactured in the correct way. Researchers at Linköping University show in an article in Nature Materials that the motion of charges in organic electronic devices is dramatically slowed down by minute amounts of water.

Materials & Production

Tiny light-up barcodes identify molecules by their twinkling

An imaging technique developed at Duke University could make it possible to peer inside cells and watch dozens of different molecules in action at once -- by labeling them with short strands of light-up DNA that blink on and off with their own unique rhythm.

What should the product look like? What are barriers impacting market entry I need to consider? Who can support me with the development and subsequent production? Development teams continuously ponder these and other questions during the product design process. A new medical technology innovation lab at OTH Amberg-Weiden (Germany) wants to help solve these problems early on in the development.

Developing countries: 3D printed microscope

Researchers have used 3D printing to make an inexpensive and portable high-resolution microscope that is small and robust enough to use in the field or at the bedside. The high-resolution 3D images provided by the instrument could potentially be used to detect diabetes, sickle cell disease, malaria and other diseases.

High-speed microscope with intuitive gesture control

The Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT in Aachen has developed a high-speed microscope for quality control of large-area objects for the semiconductor and electronics industries or for rapid testing of biological samples. The microscope digitizes samples with up to 500 frames per second.

New Method: ultrafast 3D images of nanostructures

Lensless microscopy with X-rays, or coherent diffractive imaging, is a promising approach. It allows researchers to analyse complex three-dimensional structures, which frequently exist in nature, from a dynamic perspective. Whilst two-dimensional images can already be generated quickly and in an efficient manner, creating 3D images still presents a challenge.
