Autonomous measuring instruments systematically detect new materials

31.10.2023

Despite highly specialized methods that can simultaneously produce a range of materials on a single sample and then measure them automatically, every minute counts when analyzing them: because days or even weeks can pass before the characterization of a sample is complete. The new algorithm can be integrated into existing measuring instruments to boost their efficiency significantly.

Modern Point of Care Diagnostics: "Decentralization is key to success"

22.03.2023

The COVID-19 pandemic has set off a boom in point-of-care diagnostics. But where is diagnostic testing headed and how much will digital technologies come into play? Felix Kurth answered these and other questions in an interview. The biosystems engineer works at CSEM – a Swiss technology innovation center.

Wound dressing with sensor monitors healing process

06.02.2023

Is the wound healing or is it infected? Physicians must change the bandage to find out because wounds are covered with non-transparent dressings. What happens under the wound dressing is a “black box”. Armin Haas and Professor Kai-Uwe Zirk want to change that. COMPAMED.de asked them about their approach.
