Work and produce sterile

Dear Sir or Madam,

In the field of medical device manufacturing, it is often unavoidable to work in a sterile manner. And even if it isn't, at the latest when you want to launch certain products on the market, they have to be sterilized. We have taken a closer look at how this can look in our Special: Work and produce sterile.

Are you passionate about medical technology and especially about microfluidics? Then register for the COMPAMED Innovation Forum 2021! Together with IVAM we have prepared an exciting program. Take a look, it's worth it. Here you can get the tickets.

Enjoy reading and stay healthy!

Personalized sweat sensor reliably monitors blood glucose

Electrical Engineering & Nanotechnology

Many people with diabetes endure multiple, painful finger pricks each day to measure their blood glucose. Now, researchers reporting in ACS Sensors have developed a device that can measure glucose in sweat with the touch of a fingertip, and then a personalized algorithm provides an accurate estimate of blood glucose levels.
