Genome research and microbiological diagnosis are major components of biomedical examinations. In pharmaceutical industry, such screenings of cell cultures are made to understand the functions of genes or to produce antibodies against certain diseases in a cell. A method frequently applied for fundamental research into cell biology is cell transfection. Foreign DNA or RNA molecules are introduced into a cell, thus causing a genetic modification. Lipid-similar molecules are applied most often for cell transfection.

The FlexConveyor: KIT spin-off flexlog GmbH develops a modular construction system which can replace rigid conveying systems

2013_1 flexlog Bild

To manufacture and distribute products, many flows of goods have to be constantly commissioned in complex conveying systems. Common material goods flow systems usually consist of rigidly defined roller conveyor sections with central control, which are integrated into a manufacturing plant in a fixed fashion: when the flow of goods increases, a change of conveying route is necessarily linked to a high effort in time and costs.
