Conveying, dosing, measuring, controlling
The flow of fluids inside and outside the human body plays an important role in medical technology. Safety and reliability of numerous medical devices (e.g. dialysis machines, infusion pumps or in vitro diagnostic devices) require the safe and reliable handling of small volume flows.
The accurate delivery, dosing and measurement of fluids (body fluids, medications, analysis fluids) represents a major part in our projects. Therefore, our working group organizes an annual workshop with external speakers, a poster and an industrial exhibition as well as a presentation of our own projects in the laboratory to promote the exchange of interested parties.
This year´s workshop will begin with presentations from the "Metrology for Drug Delivery" - project, sponsored by EURAMET. After a break with online presentations we will have three more talks on microfluidic applications in medical technology and a discussion.
You are interested to participate in the exhibition with a poster or an information booth to present your projects? Please feel free to contact us!
