The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft e.V. is a recognized non-profit organization in Germany, including 60 Fraunhofer Institutes.
At the Life Science Informatics department we develop new approaches to produce highly specific information on diseases and individual patients. On all levels, from molecular interaction to cellular function, tissue or organ structure, instruments produce information about the processes involved in a disease and can help to improve diagnosis and therapy.
This potential motivates our R&D in the field of information intensive instruments using optical and electronic detection methods. We develop novel components, like fluidic microsystems to study cells and molecules, smart scanning microscopes and software for image analysis and object detection. We test and validate complete applications in cooperation with their users and build application-specific systems with seamless integration in state-of-the-art network infrastructures and mobile access.

Optofluidic technologies for markerdetection

What we offer

We develop novel components, like fluidic microsystems to study cells and molecules, smart scanning microscopes and software for image analysis and object detection. We test and validate complete applications in cooperation with their users. We use our components to build application-specific systems that provide seamless integration in state-of-the-art network infrastructures and mobile access.

We currently use our technologies in projects involving:

- - tissue diagnostics

- - microbiological diagnostics

- - bacterial growth analysis

- - toxicological screenings

- - electrophysiology

- - high content screening

What we are looking for

We are looking for partners who need help with the analysis of image data, construction of optical devices, sensor-integration for microfluidic devices, building non-relational databases or the adaption of existing technologies to new biological assays including software development.

Collaboration sought
