COMPAMED is advancing from strength to strength. Rising visitor numbers are consolidating its position as a leading global event for suppliers to the medical industry. Many of the over 5,200 MEDICA exhibitors came looking for solutions at COMPAMED.
Our objective is clear: to make sure you get out of the blocks running, we want to improve the team play between suppliers and manufacturers even further in 2019.
Our brain consists of countless nerve cells that transmit signals from one cell to the next. The connections between these cells, the synapses, provide a key to understanding how our memory works. An American research team has now succeeded in identifying these switching points in millimeter-sized tissue with a light microscope on the basis of their structure.
A new power saving chip developed by engineers at the University of California San Diego could significantly reduce or eliminate the need to replace batteries in Internet of Things (IoT) devices and wearables.
Where bones fracture, surgeons often have to join the fragments with implants. Magnesium orthopaedic screws, which over time dissolve in the body, spare patients another operation after healing is completed and reduce the risk of infection. To develop optimized alloys and orthopaedic screws with functionalized surfaces, Empa researchers are now investigating magnesium corrosion.
A KAIST team has designed a new strategy for electronics that will mechanically transform into a wearable electronic device. Imagine a handheld electronic gadget that can soften and deform when attached to our skin. This will be the future of electronics we all dreamed of.
The recently launched joint project "ForMikro-GoNext" of the Leibniz-Institut für Kristallzüchtung (IKZ), the Ferdinand Braun Institut, Leibniz-Institut für Höchstfrequenztechnik (FBH), the University of Bremen and industrial partners ABB Power Grids Switzerland Ltd. and AIXTRON studies beta-gallium oxide (β-Ga2O3).
Spider silk consists of fiber-forming proteins, stored by the spider in a specialized gland. When the spider needs silk, for instance to build a web, it extrudes the silk proteins through a long duct in which they are exposed to specific mechanical and chemical influences and assembled to form silk. Spider silk proteins consist of 20 elementary building blocks known as amino acids.
Imagine a runner who doesn't need to carry a stopwatch or cell phone to check her time: She could just gaze at the glowing stopwatch display on the back of her hand. Such human-machine interfaces are no longer science fiction, but they still have a way to go before becoming mainstream.
Finding a handful of cancer cells hiding among billions of blood cells in a patient sample can be like finding a needle in a haystack. In a new approach enabled by 3D-printed cell traps, researchers are removing the hay to expose the cancer cells.
The COMPAMED, which takes place annually at the MEDICA trade fair, is the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. Exhibitors from all over the world will come to Düsseldorf this fall to present their components and technologies to the trade visitors.
Ultrashort laser pulses have enabled scientists and physicians to carry out high-precision material analyses and medical procedures. Physicists from the Universities of Bayreuth and Göttingen have now discovered a new method for adjusting the extremely short time intervals between laser flashes with exceptional speed and precision.
