Medical technology for healthcare in Togo

Dear Sir or Madam,

What if you urgently need medical attention, but there is no hospital nearby? For many inhabitants of Togo this is exactly the case. In order to provide medical care, the construction of a hospital has been initiated. However, there is still a lack of medical equipment, especially in the field of surgery and gynaecology. Find out what the project is all about in our Interview.

A healthy week

Gut-in-a-dish model to define gut leaks

Laboratory Equipment, Diagnostica, Research & Technology

Leaky gut is most often experienced by older people, patients with cancers or other chronic ailments, and people with especially stressful lifestyles. Stressors break down the zipper-like junctions between the cells that form the gut lining. Microbes and molecules that subsequently leak out through these cell gaps can trigger an immune response, contributing to a variety of diseases.
