Life Science

Life sciences are research directions that deal with processes or structures of living beings or in which living things are involved.
For the department, the study of methods for medical diagnosis, the monitoring of biotechnological processes, and food research are the main fields of interest. In this respect, microfluidics as a sample preparation technology has proven to be effective. Here, a miniaturized free-flow electrophoresis chip for the separation of proteins with an optical read-out mechanism was explored.
Furthermore, a lateral flow test for veterinary medicine is being investigated. With it, cytokine detection in very low quantities is possible. The test is thereby based on surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy.
In the field of medical technology, we investigate the possibilities of a photonic sensor for the monitoring of infusion solutions on patients.
