Infection prevention: clean air indoors as well

Dear Sir or Madam,

Open all windows – this way, we have to protect ourselves from the coronavirus in indoor locations where people spend time together. This is totally fine in warmer months, but the cold becomes an ordeal for many during winter. A protective canopy is able to help here since it locally cleans air but does not cool down the entire room. Learn more in our current interview.

Stay healthy!

Cartilage matrix for cartilage regeneration

Laboratory Equipment, Diagnostica, Research & Technology

Just a few millimetres thick, articular cartilage plays a crucial role in our musculoskeletal system, since it is responsible for smooth (in the truest sense of the word) movement. However, the downside of its particular structure is that even minor injuries do not regenerate. Timely treatment of cartilage damage is therefore essential.

Covid-19: protective canopy prevents infection

Interview

The risk of infection with SARS-CoV-2 is particularly high indoors. This is because, in addition to smear and droplet infection, infection via aerosols that accumulate and spread in the air is also possible there. Sufficient air exchange or air purification help to prevent this. The protective canopy developed by Fraunhofer IBP also follows such an approach.
