At the IVAM product market “High-tech for Medical Devices” in hall 8a, booth no.: G 19.5, the CiS Forschungsinstitut für Mikrosensorik und Photovoltaik and the application center mikrooptische systeme will present new results from research and development in the field of medical microsystems technology.
- A micro-optical accommodation system,
- A development platform for vital sensors,
- Microfluidic fluorescence and absorption sensors,
- Silicon photomultipliers,
- Sensors for impedance spectroscopy,
- Piezoresistive microforce sensors,
Here is already some information about selected novelties on our exhibition stand:.
In collaboration with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and the universities in Jena and Tübingen, a micro-optical accommodation system is currently being developed. The age-related decreasing ability of the eye to accommodate is countered by a smart microsystem that is implanted in the capsular bag of the eye instead of an intraocular lens.
We present preliminary results on a pupil width sensor, active triple optics, and hermetic housing.
The CiS optoelectronic vital sensors for reflective photoplethysmography were extended by a development platform, which allows the monitoring of cardiovascular parameters in a mobile system temporally parallel to an ECG.
The microfluidic fluorescence and absorption sensor developed together with the universities in Ilmenau and Halle-Wittenberg aims at the efficient investigation of the combination effect of potential agents and pollutants on living organisms. The sensor is based on the combination of narrow-band high-efficiency light-emitting diodes, optical interference edge filters, micro-precision optics and highly sensitive photodetectors.
The sensor is designed to detect a wide variety of fluorescent and absorbing substances in segments as small as a few nanoliters.
Silicon photomultipliers (SiPM), due to their insensitivity to magnetic radiation, degree of miniaturization and power, enable new, effective diagnostic imaging techniques, such as combined magnetic resonance and positron emission tomography.
“BIO Instrument” is a solution-oriented kit for parallel impedance spectroscopy of biological cell cultures. It includes 16 sensors with corresponding wells and an electronic module based on the 12-bit impedance digital converter AD5933. The measurement range is between 1 kHz and 100 kHz. It. The “BIO Instrument” can be operated wirelessly and has an interface to Labview. Initial evaluation tests were performed on mouse fibroblasts (L929).
The piezoresistive microsensor KASYS is only 200 x 220 x 640 µm in size and thus just twice as wide as a hair. It is the heart of a haptic assistance system that is intended to simplify catheterization in medicine in the future and reduce the risk of injury. To this end, the sensor measures the forces at catheter tips that occur between the guide wire and blood vessels during insertion.
We would also like to cordially invite all interested parties to our presentation “Development of Customized PPG Sensors – Miniaturization Technologies and Examples for Medical Applications” at the High-Tech Forum on Nov. 15, 2012 in Hall 8a.
