Novel-T and MinacNed present: Nanotechnology in med tech
De Twente innovation campuses and Novel-T have joined forces and developed a concept to bring together on content entrepreneurs, professionals, researchers and talent: Campus Café. Campus Café connects de Twente innovation community with breakout sessions on new technologies, innovative and international entrepreneurship and to engage talent. You will also have the opportunity to get to know each other during networking. You’re welcome to join on 17 June!
THEME: MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES SPEEDED UP
The quality of our healthcare is improving at a fast pace. The reason? Technology. Twente is full of innovations in the field of medical technology. Spin-offs and SME’s are developing innovations that make healthcare more efficient, cheaper and more accurate. Because of the corona pandemic, these developments have only gone faster. What is the secret of MedTech Twente? The answer to this question will be central in the upcoming edition of Campus Café: from a deep dive into the latest technologies to an online tour in MedTech Twente.
3.30 pm – Breakout session | Tracking down biomarkers with the photonic biosensor
In recent years, new biosensor technologies have been developed that can detect biomarkers with increasing accuracy and speed. This can lead to a faster diagnosis of, for example, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and infectious diseases. Surfix, a member of the association for industry and science MinacNed, is developing such a specific biosensor technology: the photonic biosensor. What is special about their fast technology is that it can detect multiple biomarkers at the same time. As a result, this technology can revolutionize the world of medical diagnostics. In this session, Hans Dijk from Surfix tells you everything about the application of the photonic biosensor. In addition, Dr. Ivan Stojanovic from Oost NL tells you more about the European project ‘NeMs4Bio’: a modular (bio) sensing platform for a wide range of applications. In this session, you are in the right place for everything about biosensors!
This session is organized in cooperation with MinacNed, the association for industry and science in the Netherlands.
