Researchers in Freiburg, Germany have invented a new device that revolutionizes lab analysis – the portable mini-lab performs faster and works more efficiently than a traditional laboratory.

Konstantin has suffered permanent disabilities due to the lack of a proper analysis of his blood when he was treated in hospital ten years ago. A new device that revolutionizes lab analysis could soon prevent similar tragedies.

The core of the system is a disc with the diameter of a CD. Researchers at HSG-IMIT in South Germany have invented this mini-lab within the European research project ASCMicroPlat. The apparatus is not only portable, but in case of life-threatening diseases it performs faster and works more efficiently than a traditional laboratory.

The first prototype has just been tested successfully at the Competence Centre for Modern Food Analytics in Berlin.
