Biomarkers, pathogens and Co.

Dear Sir or Madam,

The laboratory sector was in particular focus during this COVID-19-pandemic. Attention was given to the virus and topics related to hygiene as well as sterilization. But things have also changed in other areas. Laboratories are becoming more and more modern, and the use of robots, artificial intelligence and ever-improving diagnostic procedures is also changing the quality of medicine itself.

You can find out more about the innovations in laboratory technology in our trend topic "Under the magnifying glass – biomarkers, pathogens and Co." on and at MEDICA 2022 from 14 to 17 November in Düsseldorf.

Enjoy reading!

Proteins are frequently called the building blocks of life because they are found everywhere, including in our cells. This makes them an important factor when it comes to diseases. As a result, mapping the protein landscape within cells and analyzing their individual composition can be a crucial ally in the fight against cancer and other diseases. Now, a German-Danish team spearheaded by Matthias Mann has developed a method that provides researchers with unprecedented insights into cancer.
