96er Mikrotiterplatte: Die aus dem Blut von Patienten mit Rheumatoider Arthritis isolierten Zellen werden in einer Mikrotiterplatte kultiviert, um die krankheitsfördernden Mechanismen besser zu verstehen und analysieren zu können. Langfristig sollen anhand dieser Experimente Biomarker etabliert werden die im Projekt „aidCURE“ in der klinischen Phase I Studie verwendet werden sollen.

Thermal storage for the energy transition

In Germany, 55 percent of final energy consumption goes towards heating and cooling. However, a lot of heat dissipates unused because it is not generated as and when required. Thermal storage using zeolite material allows heat to be stored for long periods of time without losing any. Fraunhofer researchers are now working on significantly improving the thermal conductivity of zeolites.

Clean air at all times

Metal processing with lasers and plasma releases many different pollutants into the ambient air. The Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology IWS, together with partners, has developed a filter system that efficiently removes these substances from the air. The filter can be adapted to the various materials and substances released in each case. In the future, the technology will be used in other applications, such as additive manufacturing.
