Sustainable bio filter

Dear Sir or Madam,

Renewable instead of fossil resources are to be used in medical technology in the future. In our current COMPAMED interview, we introduce you to a project that deals with this topic and conducts research on the subject of polymers for biofilters.

Enjoy the day!

Filters made from renewable resources for medical applications

COMPAMED talks about ...

Many filters are still made of fossil-based polymers, but efforts are underway to change that. The idea is to use polymers from renewable resources in the future since they provide undisputed environmental benefits. However, their application also comes with drawbacks. COMPAMED.de spoke to Dr. Larisa Tsarkova and Ralf Taubner, who collaborate on the "BioFilter" research project.

3D-printed objects that sense how a user is interacting with them

Electrical Engineering & Nanotechnology

MIT researchers have developed a new method to 3D print mechanisms that detect how force is being applied to an object. The structures are made from a single piece of material, so they can be rapidly prototyped. A designer could use this method to 3D print “interactive input devices,” like a joystick, switch, or handheld controller, in one go.

TU Dresden researchers develop an implantable AI system

Electrical Engineering & Nanotechnology

TU Dresden scientists at the Chair of Optoelectronics have succeeded for the first time in developing a bio-compatible implantable AI platform that classifies in real time healthy and pathological patterns in biological signals such as heartbeats. It detects pathological changes even without medical supervision. The research results have now been published in the journal Science Advances.

An artificial ionic neuron for tomorrow's electronic memories

Electrical Engineering & Nanotechnology

Brain-inspired electronics are the subject of intense research. Scientists from CNRS and the Ecole Normale Supérieure – PSL have theorized how to develop artificial neurons using, as nerve cells, ions to carry the information. Their work reports that devices made of a single layer of water transporting ions within graphene nanoslits have the same transmission capacity as a neuron.

3D-printed sensors

Materials Science

3D-printing is becoming increasingly important in industrial manufacturing. It not only makes it possible to produce very complex shapes that would otherwise be virtually impossible to generate using conventional processes, but also enables small batch numbers to be produced on a cost-effective basis.

When the hip joint comes out of the printer

Materials Science

It's all about high-tech dentures, prostheses that autonomously detect inflammatory reactions in the body, or individually adapted seats for wheelchairs. A German-Polish Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft High-Performance Center is researching new technologies for the use of 3D printing processes, known as additive manufacturing technology, in medical technology.

Together to the new bioadhesive

Materials & Production

The EU is funding cross-border research at the University of Bayreuth and the AVČR with around € 670,000. The Biomaterials research grous are beneficiaries of the INTERREG programme. The object of the project is to research bioadhesive proteins produced by insect larvae in water bodies, in order to explore the possibilities of industrial production of such bioadhesives.

Researcher develops copper-infused mask for hospitality and tourism industry

Materials & Production

Masking up is one safe precaution. But it’s also an uncomfortable gesture, as some masks may inflict wear and tear on the face or not provide an adequate level of protection for the worker, explained Ajay Aluri, founding director of the Hospitality Innovation and Technology Lab at West Virginia University.

Efficient roll-to-roll production technologies for more climate neutrality

Materials & Production

For a climate-neutral economy, every opportunity must be exploited to reduce energy requirements and use resources efficiently. Highly efficient industrial processes are a key element in this. To this end, in the R2R-Net network, 18 European partners from industry and research are further developing reel-to-reel systems and processes that are used in production in a variety of ways.

COVID-19 nasal vaccine candidate effective at preventing disease transmission

Laboratory Medicine & Hygiene

Breathe in, breathe out. That’s how easy it is for SARS-CoV-2 to enter your nose. And though remarkable progress has been made in developing intramuscular vaccines against SARS-CoV- 2 nothing yet – like a nasal vaccine – has been approved to provide mucosal immunity in the nose, the first barrier against the virus before it travels down to the lungs.
