Project to develop mass market UV LEDs for disinfection

Project to develop mass market UV LEDs for disinfection
Eco-friendly purification of water – UV light is already being used to kill water-borne germs but the light sources used for this purpose are still predominantly mercury vapor lamps. UV LEDs have so far proved unattractive for reasons of cost. The aim of the UNIQUE project funded by the Bavarian Ministry for Economic Affairs, Media, Energy and Technology is therefore to develop high-power UV LEDs for industrial use.

Microscopy technique could reduce repeat surgeries

Microscopy technique could reduce repeat surgeries
Engineers at the Optical Imaging Laboratory led by Caltech's Lihong Wang have developed an imaging technology that could help surgeons removing breast cancer lumps confirm that they have cut out the entire tumour - reducing the need for additional surgeries. About 300,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer are discovered annually. Of these, 60 to 75% of patients underwent breast-conserving surgery.

Brain surgery access device has been cleared in Europe

Brain surgery access device has been cleared in Europe
NICO Corporation received the European CE Mark for its BrainPath brain access system that helps neurosurgeons works on lesions in the subcortical space. It is designed to pass by the brain’s folds without causing too much damage thanks to its atraumatic tip that pushes apart the folds to gently slide through. Once the device reaches its destination, it is removed while a sheath that sits around the device remains in place creating an opening for surgical access.

High-precision surgical robot aids cochlear implantation

High-precision surgical robot aids cochlear implantation
A team of surgeons and engineers of Inselspital, Bern University Hospital, and the ARTORG Center for Biomedical Engineering Research, University of Bern, have developed a high-precision surgical robot for cochlear implantation. In the same way that avionics allow a pilot to fly a plane by instrument solely based on read-outs from the cockpit, the surgical robot developed by the researchers for RCI has the capabilities to perform surgery that a surgeon cannot carry out manually without a robot.
