Relentless helpers in the lab

Dear Sir or Madam,

Tracking down pathogens: This and much more are among the tasks of laboratory medicine. Some laboratory tasks are monotonous and repetitive – making them ideal for the use of collaborative robots. In the current video you can learn how the CoBots from the start-up bAhead pay off in a variety of ways.

Enjoy watching,

Digital and automated laboratory – Robots as multifunctional helpers

Video

Image: Preview picture of video
A lot of laboratory tasks require high precision on one hand, on the other they tend to be repetitive and tiring. While humans can only work for a limited time here while staying effective, robots are able to work without taking a break. The start-up bAhead wants to make collaborative robots, CoBots, adaptable helpers with the help of AI. We learn more about this in the video interview with CEO & Founder Rainer Treptow.

Wearable device can detect and reverse opioid overdose

Research & Technology, IT systems and IT solutions

A research team at the University of Washington has developed a wearable device to detect and reverse an opioid overdose. The device, worn on the stomach like an insulin pump, senses when a person stops breathing and moving, and injects naloxone, a lifesaving antidote that can restore respiration.

Better images for science

Research & Technology, Imaging and diagnostics / medical equipment and devices

In order to detect and research diseases, it is important to look inside the body. For this purpose, there are various imaging methods – from ultrasound examinations to X-rays and computer tomography. Molecular imaging provides a particularly precise insight, showing biological processes and organ functions "live".
