Imec (Leuven, Belgium), a leading research and innovation hub in nano-electronics and digital technologies, received NASA funding to test a technology for monitoring astronauts’ health status under zero gravity conditions using a first-of-its-kind disposable diagnostic device developed by imec’s spin-off, miDiagnostics. Imec will design test parameters and perform experiments in different gravity scenarios using one of miDiagnostics’ devices that is built around a silicon-based nanofluidic processor that performs a series of blood sample manipulations yielding a cell blood count with fast turnaround time.
Fitness trackers, smart pharmaceutical packaging, adhesive solar films or steplessly dimmable windows: These are just a few examples of the applications that will be combined under the new focus topic Smart Living. LOPEC, the international exhibition and conference for the printed electronics industry, will thereby demonstrate the innovative opportunities that printed electronics offers to a wide variety of industries. The next LOPEC will take place from 24 to 26 March 2020.
Sun Chemical (Parsippany, New Jersey) will exhibit its portfolio for functional, industrial and specialty print applications suitable for a broad range of market sectors at InPrint 2019, in Munich, Germany from 12 to 14 November on stand 246 in Hall A6.
