Covid-19 and the mask

Dear Sir or Madam,

You can see them everywhere at the moment and in the most different colours and forms: Face masks. But what can they actually do if they are not classified as medical products? In our current interview you can find out which alternatives make sense for production and how children also benefit from them.

Enjoy the beautiful weather wherever possible!

When the coronavirus pandemic emerged, it caused a mask shortage in hospitals and doctor's offices. What was once an inexpensive product suddenly turned into a coveted commodity. It prompted the Ulm University of Applied Sciences to study different types of textiles and materials to see whether they can be used in face masks. Their search landed the University on vacuum cleaner bag manufacturing.

Implants: Can special coatings reduce complications after implant surgery?

Laboratory Medicine & Hygiene

New coatings on implants could help make them more compatible. Researchers at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) have developed a new method of applying anti-inflammatory substances to implants in order to inhibit undesirable inflammatory reactions in the body. Their study was recently published in the "International Journal of Molecular Sciences".
