    Webinar "How can optical sensor technology make a difference in microfluidics?"

    Opticalmeasurement technology is widely used in many areas of sensor technology. One of the challenges for their use in microfluidics is their miniaturization. In this webinar, we will present some examples of how the integration of optical metrology into microfluidic systems can be achieved.

    Testing new drugs in clinics, searching for specific biomarkers, developing sentient prostheses, brainstorming concepts for secure data management – health-related research certainly comes in many guises. The research efforts of Fraunhofer Institutes address four major areas of medical science – drugs, diagnostics, devices and data, or 4D for short. The authors visited four research teams on the cutting edge of translational medicine, where fundamental research is ushered out of the lab and into the world.

    Scientists at the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft explore biological systems and combine their findings with imaginative technologies to develop pioneering innovations for a sustainable economy. By working to replace fossil fuels with renewable ones and to recycle plastics, they aim to halt the increasing pollution of soils and oceans. They also design mobility and energy solutions on the model of resilient ecosystems, develop biopharmaceuticals for the treatment of cancer and autoimmune diseases and replace animal experiments with intelligent, cell-based test systems. Their research makes it possible to effectively control pests in agriculture without endangering other species, to use wastewater for vegetable cultivation and much more.
