Stainless steel vs. copper in the interior of a CO2 incubator

A study by the Institute for Hygiene and Public Health (IHPH) at the University of Bonn from 2009 demonstrates: copper cannot be unconditionally recommended for the prevention of germs, since there are no reliable findings on the antimicrobial effect of copper surfaces after intensive cleaning and disinfection. Stainless steel remains the material of choice for long-lasting appliances.

Ageing in the heating oven

Quality management in the automobile industry - At Leoni, wires and cables undergo a strict ageing test in the heating oven.

Shola Olunloyo<br/>a chef of many talents

Some guys have all the luck, right? Shola Olunloyo is one of those. Gifted with many talents he is a renowned chef, a distinguished photographer and a writer with an almost poetic touch when he talks about cooking as an art.

Degassing of Epoxy Resin before Curing

Microdul AG in Switzerland is a recognised expert in the miniaturisation of electronic circuits, especially for medical technology. The company uses a Memmert vacuum drying oven VO 400 for degassing epoxy resins as standard equipment in the manufacture of electronic modules, in order to remove voids before curing.

Comparing various drying procedures at the TU Weihenstephan

Vacuum drying is part of the basic education in nutritional sciences. Students at the TU Weihen-stephan get to know the process by experiments using the vacuum drying oven. Basic research at the TU Weihenstephan. It is no exaggeration that the Science Centre Weihenstephan of the Technical University Munich (in short, WZW) is referred to as the home of the nutritional sciences and the environmental sciences in Germany.

The vacuum oven at the Chair for Polymer Materials

The Chair for Polymer Materials at the University of Bayreuth, Germany, uses the vacuum oven for drying, curing, degassing and polymerisation. From jewellery to semiconductors: our world is polymer. They have become an indispensable part of our daily lives, and polymers have even found their way into the art world.

Titanium: Splendid, light, corrosion-resistant, anti-magnetic and anti-allergenic

The Nuremberg high-tech company GfE Metalle und Materialien uses two models of the Memmert vacuum drying oven in the manufacture of titanium powder. Not only its complex production makes titanium so valuable, but also the fascinating combination of all its qualities: As sturdy as steel, but considerably lighter, extremely corrosion-resistant, anti-magnetic and anti-allergenic.

Determination of dry content and moisture content in vaccum

Farmacéutica Paraguaya, in short, Fapasa, is the largest exporting pharmaceutical company in Paraguay. Apart from drugs for oncological, urological and gynaecological applications, the company also produces a large range of OTC products, nutritional supplements and painkillers.

Development of polymer membranes

The Nanoscience Institute of Aragón in Zaragoza is supported by Memmert vacuum ovens in its research, in particular into the development of a polymer membrane with improved permeability and selectivity.

Peltier-cooled incubator IPP, ideal for protein crystallography

Hardly any vibrations, almost no noise, highly precise and accurate. The PhosphoSites research group at the University Hospital in Frankfurt, doing basic research on protein kinases, cultivates its protein crystals in a Memmert incubator IPP.
