In recent years, 3D printing has taken its place in medical technology, for example in the manufacturing of specific tools or implants.This method can also be used to print anatomical models for training purposes or to plan an operation, for example, where doctors can practice surgery and prepare themselves for it. We learn more about this at the stand of Stratasys GmbH at COMPAMED 2017.
Care and treatment of wounds is particularly difficult when acute or chronic infections occur. Infections not only endanger the healing process itself, they can also spread through the body from the wound, trigger a sepsis or make an amputation necessary. At COMPAMED 2017, we learn how a German-Indian research cooperation aims to improve diagnostics and care from the Fraunhofer Institute for Electrical Nanosystems.
Lab-on-a-chip systems have been a valuable asset in medical technology and biotechnology for many years. They can be used for a lot of different tasks, like diagnostics, genetics and in drug trials. To be able to fulfill these tasks optimally, they need to be tailored to the users’ specific needs. We learn more about this at the stand of microLIQUID S.L. at COMPAMED 2017.
