Optimal patient-centered and individualized care is an important goal in medical and pharmaceutical technology. The highest quality requirements and more stringent regulatory stipulations are leading to pronounced innovation pressure and cost demands in the production of both medical devices and pharmaceuticals. Digitization poses further challenges for the industry.
In interdisciplinary teams, the Fraunhofer IST develops solutions for product and production systems in medical and pharmaceutical process engineering. Using qualified equipment, we develop barrier coatings for medical products. By means of adhesion-controlling surfaces we optimize, amongst other things, cell-culture systems and implants. With functional coatings, we increase the sensitivity of e.g. diagnostic test procedures. In the field of hygiene, we offer innovative cleaning systems for surface disinfection in addition to sustainable antibacterial coatings. For individualized medicine production, we design process chains ranging from the modification of active constituents and excipients through to innovative packaging concepts.
