Microfluidics: booster for hightech medicine

Dear Sir or Madam,

In the past year of the corona pandemic, we did not only enormously increase testing capacities, we also developed vaccines in record time. Microfluids play a great role in advances like these, because this technology substantially supports research and development of drugs, vaccines and diagnostic methods.

The COMPAMED Innovation Forum 2021, organized by Messe Düsseldorf in cooperation with IVAM Microtechnology Network, takes a look at current methods and approaches in microfluidics and illustrates the perspectives they open up for tomorrow’s medicine.

Microfluidics for mobile diagnostics and the development and manufacture of drugs and vaccines

The lectures will show the individual aspects and possibilities of microfluidic applications. Afterwards, users will discuss with developers. One focus will be the experiences from the pandemic: How can we respond faster and more effectively to challenges such the development of drugs and vaccines for Covid-19?

Technique uses fluctuations in video pixels to measure energy use of developing embryos


Scientists have made a breakthrough in the study of embryonic development and how it can be impacted by external factors such as climate change. Researchers at the University of Plymouth have developed a cutting edge technique which enables them to instantly examine the biological traits and behaviours of developing embryos as an energy signature, rather than focusing on individual characteristics

Making the invisible visible


Researchers from Friedrich Schiller University Jena, the University of California Berkeley and the Institut Polytechnique de Paris use intense laser light in the extreme ultraviolet spectrum to generate a non-linear optical process on a laboratory scale – a process which until now has only been possible in a large-scale research facility.
