Driving sustainability forward

Dear Sir or Madam,

The topic of sustainability has been on our minds for some time now here at COMPAMED-tradefair.com (here the special "Sustainable medical technology" again for you to read). A new EU initiative now wants to push this topic further in the field of plastics. This is an important topic that must not be allowed to take a back seat despite current issues. Click here for the news. Enjoy reading!

Stay healthy!

Device can detect anti-virus antibody in 20 minutes

Innovations

Researchers have succeeded in detecting anti-avian influenza virus antibody in blood serum within 20 minutes, using a portable analyzer they have developed to conduct rapid on-site bio tests. If a suitable reagent is developed, this technology could be used to detect antibodies against SARS-CoV-2, the causative virus of COVID-19.

Rolling into the deep

Innovations

Scientists took a leukocyte as the blueprint and developed a microrobot that has the size, shape and moving capabilities of a white blood cell. Simulating a blood vessel in a laboratory setting, they succeeded in magnetically navigating the ball-shaped microroller through this dynamic and dense environment.

COVID-19 tests compared

Laboratory Medicine & Hygiene

In an important, comprehensive, and timely review, an team from the University of California Berkeley details the methodologies used in nucleic acid-based tests for detecting the presence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. They show that these tests vary widely in applicability to mass screening and urge further improvements in testing technologies to increase speed and availability.

Roll-to-roll processes: Network R2RNet bundles expertise

International Markets

Roll-to-roll (R2R) processes, in which, for example, films, textiles, flat membranes, metal foils or even ultra-thin glass are functionalized, play an important role in numerous industrial processes. In the R2RNet network, founded on June 10, 2020, 21 European partners are pooling their expertise in the continuous functionalization of surfaces in the roll-to-roll process.
