We have already received several awards for our development work in the field of Raman spectroscopy:
Bio Particle Explorer wins innovation award
The Bio Particle Explorer from the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technologies (IPHT), which can be used to quickly characterize germs such as bacteria, fungi and yeasts, has been awarded the Innovation Village Award at Photonics Europe 2014 in Brussels.
Biophotonics Diagnostics, founded on May 4, 2016, develops software solutions and database systems with which life-threatening pathogens and their possible resistances can be identified quickly and easily. The combination of an optical measurement method and computer-based data analysis reduces the time previously required for unambiguous pathogen identification from about one day to a few hours.
The technology RAMANBIOASSAY receives important innovation award
Jürgen Popp and Ute Neugebauer received the 3rd prize of the Berthold Leibinger Innovation Award for Applied Laser Technology on September 21. The accidental discovery of penicillin in 1928 by Alexander Fleming marked the beginning of the triumphant advance of antibiotics. Many often fatal diseases and wound infections lost their terror. But there is a danger that humans will lose this weapon against bacteria. Mutations cause bacteria to develop resistance to current antibiotics. Developing new active substances, on the other hand, is expensive and very time-consuming. This is why there is talk of a serious antibiotics crisis worldwide.
Biophotonics Diagnostics GmbH has won the OptecNet Start-up Challenge 2019. The young company from Jena was able to prevail against five other finalists in a pitch session during the OptecNet annual conference. For 1st place, the start-up receives prize money of 5000 euros and a portrait in the trade journal PHOTONIK.
