Air purifiers, microscopes and co.

Dear Sir or Madam,

Air purifiers for supporting pandemic control are a topic again and again. But consumers are often rightly uncertain about what these devices can really do. After all, it has hardly been possible to test whether they really render Sars-CoV-2 harmless. The University Hospital of Tübingen wants to change that and is developing a corresponding test rig. You can see more about this here in the video.

Are you interested in the topic of microfluidics and would like to learn more about it? Then register quickly for tomorrow's 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 the sun and stay healthy!

PS: In the latest interview, you can read all about a new positioning technique in microscopy. Cobalt-samarium coated metal bands help to precisely adjust microscope stages.

Tomorrow is finally the day! The COMPAMED Innovation Forum on the topic: Microfluidics for mobile diagnostics and the development and manufacture of drugs and vaccines starts!

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?

Inactivating coronaviruses in aerosols - Test rig with UV-C radiation at Tübingen University Hospital


Photo: Preview picture of the video
Virologists at Tübingen University Hospital want to use a test rig to find out how coronaviruses in aerosols can be inactivated by UV-C radiation to give consumers more certainty when buying air purifiers in the future. We spoke with Prof. Dr. Michael Schindler and Prof. Dr.Ing. Jennifer Niessner.

Precise positioning: microscope stages with cobalt-samarium coated metal bands

COMPAMED talks about ...

Microscopes are important tools for studying and understanding viruses and bacteria. The more precise the microscope, the more accurate the results. This also applies to the microscope stages, which have to be positioned precisely. The Fraunhofer IST, together with an industrial partner, has developed magnetic ribbons for this purpose which are driving development forward.
