The Fraunhofer IBMT as one of the six institutes within the Fraunhofer Group of Life Sciences is a provider of in vitro diagnostics (ivD) related research and development tools. Among its services, the whole value chain from biomarker to a marketable ivD-platform can be covered. Starting with a collection of biospecimen (cyrotechnology) and access via a metadatabase (CRIP) to a multiply of pathologies around Europe the Fraunhofer IBMT starts to find biomarker for different indications. Having a biomarker, different assay development tools combining sensor technology, microarray techniques and different platforms (lab-on-a-chip) can be chosen to obtain a marketable diagnostic test.
