Adult zebrafish are a well-established model for studying heart regeneration. Due to their opaque tissue repair has been primarily assessed using destructive histology, precluding repeated investigations of the same animal. Scientists have now found a high-resolution, non-invasive in vivo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) method incorporating a miniature respiratory and anaesthetic perfusion set-up for live adult zebrafish, allowing for visualization of scar formation and heart regeneration in
Back in 2011 we started working with GENSPEED Biotech, a spin off company of Bio-One Diagnostics GmbH. With our micro pump they developed GENSPEED® MRSA. A diagnostic tool for the qualitative detection of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in the human nasal and pharyngeal smears, inguinal swabs or bacterial culture. Worldwide it is the most significant cause of nosocomial infections.
Inside of the box Student experiment “PAPELL” features Bartels mp6 micro pump A group of students at the University of Stuttgart has developed the “pump of the future” by picking up rather old ideas and combining them with modern methods. The idea originates from a theory NASA engineer Steve Papell had in 1963. Pappel wanted to replace conventional rocket engines
Laryngeal cancer is also known as cancer of the larynx or laryngeal carcinoma. Laryngeal cancer are mostly squamous cell carcinomas, reflecting their origin from the skin of the larynx. Basically the cancer can develop in any part of the larynx, but the cure rate is affected by the location of the tumor. For the purposes of tumor staging, the larynx
In cooperation with our partners 2E mechatronic and the Hahn Schickard Gesellschaft (HSG), Bartels Mikrotechnik is currently developing the project MiMID-Flow. The project is supported by ZIM (Zentrales Innovationsprogramm Mittelstand), a funding program for small and medium sized enterprises which want to develop new or significantly improve existing products. Lead partner for the project is the AiF Projekt GmBH.
