In-vitro-Diagnostic: Systems for Patient-near Testing

Within an internally funded project named "Fraunhofer ivD-Platform" a credit card-sized lab-on-chip system could be established which enables the patient-near analysis of up to 500 different parameters from a drop of blood. Hence, complicated patient-near sampling and testing can be performed. Via the use of information and communication technologies the system is mobile and can be used in a variety of different scenarios.

The Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT, Branch Potsdam-Golm, together with different collaborators will be presenting its research development in point of care testing on this years' MEDICA (16.-19. November, Düsseldorf, Hall 10 Stand F05).

First applications of the system are in intensive care and emergency medicine as well as screenings and therapy control. In addition, as a technology platform also other analyses can be transferred onto the system. At the end of the project all partners are available at the booth on november,17, 2011 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
