Optical components, systems and assemblies for life science applications

Optical components play a particularly important role in the field of diagnostic imaging technologies, like X-ray, ultrasound examinations, computer tomography or endoscopy but also in the quality assurance of manufacturing processes. High-quality optics are essential, not least in the field of laser technology. Optical components, systems and assemblies form a focal point in the field of medical technology components, which will be on display at COMPAMED.

Innovative sensors for diagnostics and monitoring applications

Sensor technology is one of the key technologies when it comes to making conventional medical devices or production processes in the manufacture of medical products smarter and more controllable. Sensors make it possible to digitize diagnostic, control or therapy devices and thus also contribute to making these applications "wearable".

Microfluidic components and systems enable modern, mobile diagnosis and therapy devices

Microfluidics plays an increasingly important role in industry and in applications for everyday life. The medical technology and healthcare markets are particularly in focus. Mobile diagnostic and therapeutic devices are not possible without microfluidic components that process small amounts of liquids. At COMPAMED 2019, microfluidics is is again a special trend topic in our joint area as well as at the experts forum.

If you can dream it you can do it!? Ok let's check!

Traditionally, we leave our office once or twice a year to conduct a strategic meeting in a constructive atmosphere. The goal is always to discuss with each other across all divisions and unaffected from the current daily business. On days like this, even our trade fair manager sometimes manages to leave her mail unanswered for a day. This year we practiced the Disney method and experienced an ArtNight.
