  1. 1. Medical Device Innovation : The integrated processes of invention, diffusion and deployment

    Author : Kerstin Roback; Jan Persson; Stuart S. Blume; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Innovation; Medical technical products; Spread; Technique use; Technical development; Social change; Innovation; Medicintekniska produkter; Spridning; Teknikanvändning; Seknisk utveckling; Social förändring; Medical engineering; Medicinsk teknik;

    Abstract : An increased use of medical devices has been assumed to be a major cause of rising healthcare expenditures. Nations around the world are trying to keep costs down, but strong incentives still exist for the development and use of new devices. Innovation is, however, never exclusively good or bad and it is not easy to evaluate the net effect. READ MORE

  2. 2. Single Molecule Detection : Microfluidic Automation and Digital Quantification

    Author : Malte Kühnemund; Mats Nilsson; Ulf Landegren; Sten Linnarsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; single molecule; digital; rolling circle amplification; magnetic particle; padlock probe; microfluidics; resistive pulse sensing; lab on chip; mobile phone microscopy; enrichment; sequencing;

    Abstract : Much of recent progress in medical research and diagnostics has been enabled through the advances in molecular analysis technologies, which now permit the detection and analysis of single molecules with high sensitivity and specificity. Assay sensitivity is fundamentally limited by the efficiency of the detection method used for read-out. READ MORE

  3. 3. Protein and Cell Interactions with Nanostructured Surfaces

    Author : Emma Westas; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; bacteria; titanium dioxide; implant associated infections; metabolomics; cellular interactions; hydroxyapatite; immune complement activation; silica; nanoparticles; photocatalysis; protein adsorption; Nanostructured implants;

    Abstract : A great challenge of today’s implant development is to construct a surface that promotes tissue integration and avoids bacterial colonization. To avoid implant related infections, many argue that a surface promoting strong cell adhesion and tissue integration in favour for bacterial adhesion would solve the problem, the so-called race for the surface concept.

  4. 4. Microfluidic based isolation of circulating tumor cells from whole blood for cancer diagnostics

    Author : Harisha Ramachandraiah; Aman Russom; Klas Hjort; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : Detection of circulating tumor cells (CTC) in peripheral blood is indicative of early recognition of tumor progression and such an important biomarker for early diagnosis, staging, monitoring and prognosis of cancer. However, CTC are found in very low concentrations and reliable isolation of these rare cells is challenging. READ MORE

  5. 5. Mesoporous Implants for Localized Controlled Drug Delivery

    Author : Johan Karlsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; release kinetics; mesoporous titania; biomineralization; drug delivery; Biomedical implants; osseointegration; osteoporosis drugs; nanotopography; stem cells homing;

    Abstract : The use of bone-anchored implants is today a routine treatment for patients with normal regenerative capacity. However, there is an ongoing development within implant research to improve the osseointegration of implants. READ MORE
