Applications for the real-time measurement of microbiological contamination in potable water, waster water and air conditioning systems. Realization of very high sensitivity levels and detection of different bacteria strains (i.e. legionella bacteria). Identification of biofilm formation as forward indicator of water contamination. Build up as ready-to-use solution including electronics, application software and data transfer
The innovative assay platform permits real-time analysis of the response of explanted human tumour tissue without the need for biomarkers. If data on cell metabolism is used, it is possible to determine whether or not significant chemosensitivity exists. Use cases in personalized medicine, individualized chemotherapy and drug development.
Sensors measure the metabolism of cells within the human body while transporting active substances and therapeutics precisely to weakened, pathogenic cells. Passive and active sensors are used which are energy self-sufificient. Applicable within the field of oncology and for monitoring inflammations and rejections of the human body.
With the “SensoBite” splint, the patient’s chewing activities are measured by means of a piezo-electric sensor system integrated in a conventional occlusal splint. A wireless radio transmitter sends the measured data to a receiver. This system monitors the bruxism levels during the day and night. This system can also prompt immediate tactile (vibration) or acoustic biofeedback via the receiver. In the long run, this biofeedback stimulation will help to condition the patient and to reduce his/her bruxism activity.
KOMPASS – Cognitive personalized medical assistance system
The “All-in-One” medical device enables patients to monitor their vital signs independently by using one single device. It utilizes mobile radio services to automatically transmit the measurements to a database – the treating physician can access the data of his/her patients at all times.
The novel μLa (microLab) testing device is easy to operate; it has been developed as a first step towards on-site food analysis. For the first time, evidence has been obtained that living cells can be used as signal transducers for food tests.
Monocellular green algae colonization on a silicon sensor chip is the central element of this biomonitoring system, which can be used for monitoring lakes, rivers or waste water. The algae metabolism reacts even to low degrees of contamination in the test water.
