Solid or soft, degradable or indefinitely durable, resilient or sensitive - each material has different properties and can be used for specific purposes. At COMPAMED 2021, you can find out which material is suitable for which possible applications in medical technology!
Messe Düsseldorf and exhibitors make valuable contribution to COVID 19 vaccination campaign
COMPAMED 2021, the international leading trade fair for the supplier market for medical manufacturing, will be held in parallel with the world’s leading medical trade fair MEDICA 2021 in Halls 13 and 14, and not Halls 8a and 8b as originally planned, at the Düsseldorf trade fair centre from 15 to 18 November. By moving the event to new halls, Messe Düsseldorf is meeting the wishes of the federal state government of North Rhine-Westphalia, namely to ensure that they can continue to use the north area of the trade fair centre for activities in conjunction with vaccine logistics and infrastructure for this federal state.
Exciting articles on the topic from the COMPAMED.de editorial team
Hygiene: coatings against microbes
They are everywhere: microbes. Many of them are useful. Others can make us sick. Especially in hospitals, old people's homes and medical practices, they can pose a danger through transmission. For example, when an immunocompromised patient comes into contact with MRSA. Special coatings could help.
Filters made from renewable resources for medical applications
Many filters are still made of fossil-based polymers, but efforts are underway to change that. The idea is to use polymers from renewable resources in the future since they provide undisputed environmental benefits. However, their application also comes with drawbacks. COMPAMED-tradefair.com spoke to Dr. Larisa Tsarkova and Ralf Taubner, who collaborate on the "BioFilter" research project.
A practical presentation of the latest developments throughout the process chain. Expert talks focus on mechanical and electronic components, innovative materials, manufacturing processes, manufacturing services of all kinds, design and usability aspects and quality assurance. Further main topics are additive manufacturing, electronic and regulatory affairs. Power presentations on innovative new markets round off the exciting program. The COMPAMED SUPPLIER FORUM is organized by DeviceMed, the leading German-language trade magazine aimed at manufacturers of medical technology products.
COMPAMED trade visitors come from the world's most important markets. And experience a diversity that is unique in the world. A comprehensive range of components, parts, services, digital technologies and more that will create the medical technology of tomorrow.

Exciting interviews on the subject of materials from the editorial team of COMPAMED.de
Material development for implants
Finding the right implant material isn’t always an easy feat because it has to meet stringent medical and material requirements. Researchers from different branches of science at the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems, IKTS, are studying ways to optimize and create new implants. Dr. Jörg Opitz is among the esteemed scientists.
Before single-use medical devices hit the market, they must be sterilized. The present pandemic has exacerbated the situation as the number of medical consumables in laboratories has reached new heights.
Various materials have become an integral part of medical technology. Many exhibitors from these fields can also be found at virtual.COMPAMED. You can get a small insight in our photo gallery!
