Automation and Miniaturization

The main focus in the automation and miniaturization field of research is to develop solutions for complex lab automation tasks in the field of biotechnology. In addition to simplifying processes in the cultivation, expansion and monitoring of cells, there are also processes and devices being developed for a wide range of point-of-care applications.

The competencies required for this include microfabrication technologies, processes for the analysis and application of molecular interfaces and electronic effects, as well as expertise in the areas of microfluids and cell cultures.

The developments aim to improve the efficiency, quantity and quality of cell products and bioanalytical processes.
