Our expertise

Nanobiotechnology and solutions in medical imaging are one focus of expertise of the EUREGIO BioMedtech Center.

An extensive range of biophysical, biochemical and biomedical methods, e.g. cellular MTP assays or FACS assays, is available for the development and production of recombinant proteins up to the preparation of functional nanoparticle conjugates. In cooperation with partners, preclinical toxicity studies of nanomaterials including the histological detection of non-fluorescent nanomaterials in tissues by confocal laser scanning microscopy can be performed. Furthermore, 3D models and tissue phantoms of different tumor cell lines are available for the testing of nanomaterials. For instance, animal studies with fluorescent nanomaterials have already been carried out in cooperation with leading medical technology companies.

The EUREGIO BioMedtech Center (325 m² incl. S1 lab) has excellent facilities at its disposal for cloning and screening, imaging and histology, fermentation and expression in prokaryotes and eukaryotes, as well as the purification and characterization of recombinant proteins. Additional clinical devices such as ECG, EEG, and glucose and lactate analyzers are used in various biomedical projects. Currently, new R&D projects are being prepared for the medical application of nanotechnology in oncology, neurology and surgery.

Through the extensive business experience of the head of the EUREGIO BioMedtech Center (first prize business plan start-up, company co-founder, development of a patent portfolio, legal basis of medical technology companies, identification of business ideas, venture capital, coordination of medical project partners, FDA consultation) we are an experienced partner for confidential contract research conducted under SOP requirements to develop nanomedical products.
