Designing new markets

Review German Brand and Design Congress

The German Design Council organized the 5th German Brand and Design Congress on 11-12 November 2013 in Stuttgart under the motto “Designing New Markets”. The congress realting to investment goods centered around successful internationalization strategies of German companies that focus on brand and design – in times of global markets, sustainable entrepreneurial success can be secured only through clear differentiation from the competitive environment. Small and medium-sized companies, which can strongly profit from a consistent design strategy, were especially addressed with questions around the quality promise Made in Germany, property rights, intercultural branding and employer branding.

The German Brand and Design Congress 2013 were sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology and the Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs Baden-Württemberg, and were organized in cooperation with the Design Center Stuttgart.

Medica 2013

Dr.Fenning Biomed presents f-microlab sepsis at medica 2013 in Düsseldorf


Our client Dr.Fenning Biomed is presenting its highly innovative laboratory equipment for sepsis detection, at the medica 2013 in Düsseldorf. defortec created therefore the new appearance of the fully automatic testing device. F-Microlab sepsis offers a revolutionary system to prove sepsis or blood poisoning. In contrast to the long conventional process, the analysis is significantly faster, which improves the healing process substantially.

The compact and automatically device enables blood tests by the doctor on-site. Within 25 minutes the resulting dates are available. This enables a biological Lab-on-Chip-System, which has been developed by scientists at the Fraunhofer-Institut of Physical Measuring technology IPM in Freiburg. The Lab-on-Chip is evaluated in a device that works fully automated. The only thing the doctor needs to do is to put the blood test into the system and to wait for the result.

We wish the very nice Dr.Fenning Biomed team a successful exhibition with their new f-microlab sepsis.
