Particle Systems for in vitro and in vivo Diagnostics
Particle Systems for in vitro and in vivo Diagnostics

The central point of our research is multifunctional nanoparticles which open up new ways of improving individualized diagnostic and therapy. At Fraunhofer ISC, a novel concept for the design of customized particle systems was developed. more

Nanoparticles for Medical Imaging
Nanoparticles for Medical Imaging

In recent years, diagnostic imaging has become an important approach in the field of medicine. Besides the classical technology of X-ray examination, contrast-rich methods like computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET) and ultrasonic techniques are often applied in the soft tissue area. more

Particle Systems for Therapy
Particle Systems for Therapy

Due to their size and their adjustable properties, there is an increased application of nanoparticles in therapy. On the one hand, they can be applied as carrier for medical active substances. On the other hand, they can be a therapeutic agent itself. more

Particle Analysis
Particle Analysis

Micro- and nanoparticles increasingly represent the basis of products used in daily life. Consequently, particle characterization plays an important role which requires special methods for analyzing the structure and chemical composition of these materials. more
