Compamed 2013

The COMPAMED takes place in Dusseldorf/ Germany from November 20 to 22, 2013. COMPAMED as a trade fair for medical suppliers shows together with the parallel event, the world's largest medical trade fair MEDICA the entire process chain for medical products.

Fraunhofer ENAS provides for the first time at the COMPAMED its expertise in medical technology. The institute presents at the booth H23.2 on the IVAM Product Market "High-tech for Medical Devices" in hall 8a. In addition to lab-on-a-chip systems and printed systems for Point-of-Care diagnostics we will show various MEMS spectrometer for analysis of gases, liquids and solids and research on biocompatible packaging.

The institute presents a diagnostic device for measuring cholesterol content in the blood. The system is a joint development of Fraunhofer ENAS with the University of the West of England, the University of Liverpool, the Dublin City University, Alere and VTT in the EU project SIMS. The system integrates printed components – biosensors, displays and batteries – onto a flexible plastic substrate. The diagnostic device is powered by a printed battery.

Liquid-based microfluidic systems with a high degree of integration are developed at Fraunhofer ENAS in collaboration with the Technische Universität Chemnitz and the BiFlow Systems GmbH. The aim of the work is the miniaturization of complex analyzes in biomedical, food and environmental fields. Especially fabrication technologies and costs are taken into account within a holistic development process. At the COMPAMED, Fraunhofer ENAS shows some of these point-of-care diagnostic systems – including an analysis system for detection of the tropical disease Chagas.
