Microscopy: Look into the depths

Dear Sir or Madam,

The view through a high-performance microscope is something special, considering what small structures are visible hereby. However, there are physical limits that make the image blurry after a certain resolution of the object. Researchers from the University of Würzburg did not want to accept that. With the help of mathematics, they have deepened the view into these tiny structures even further. How, you will find out in our Top News!

Have fun reading,

Sensors to detect and measure cancer's ability to spread

The spread of invasive cancer cells from a tumor's original site to distant parts of the body is known as metastasis. It is the leading cause of death in people with cancer. In a paper published online in iScience, University of California San Diego School of Medicine researchers reported engineering sensors that can detect and measure the metastatic potential of single cancer cells.

Packaging and labelling at COMPAMED 2018

Video

Photo: Preview picture of video "packaging "
Usually, medical devices are not needed where they are produced. Suitable packaging must therefore be used for transport or storage. But what does such packaging look like? Which materials are suitable for this? And how do I label a medical product correctly? We'll find out at COMPAMED 2018!

Precisely fitting bone implants from the printer

Cancerous tumors, infections or bad fractures can make it necessary to surgically remove bones and insert implants in their place. In collaboration with European partners, Fraunhofer researchers have now developed a technique with which bone implants that are precisely fitting, stable and variable in dimensions can be 3D-printed from a special plastic.

Nanowire Memristor to reproduce the synapses of the brain

Emulating and understanding the human brain is one of the most important challenges for modern technology: on the one hand, the ability to artificially reproduce the processing of brain signals is one of the cornerstones for the development of artificial intelligence, while on the other the understanding of the cognitive processes at the base of the human mind is still far away.

How to reduce pharmaceutical wastage

Pharmaceuticals are often dosed according to patient weight or body size which means that a dose must be individually measured. In a new study, lead author Anthony Hatswell of Delta Hat Limited and University College London in the UK, shows that by optimizing drug dose sizes available, wastage can be cut by as much as 50 per cent.
