Case studies

Let us take you into the fascinating world of Memmert appliances, which we have collected on our user platform  AtmoSAFE. From turbo drying of vast amounts of powder in the vacuum drying oven to artificial ageing of cables in the heating oven to climate testing of electronic devices in the climate oven. 

If you have questions regarding a special appliance please don’t hesitate to give us a shout:

Cell cultivation in stem cell research

Heidelberg-based TICEBA GmbH is a highly innovative biopharmaceuticals company in the field of stem cell research. As a manufacturer of medicines, TICEBA produces stem-cell-based medicines for clinical trials conducted by its subsidiary RHEACELL GmbH & Co. KG, which is heavily involved in research into stem cell therapies in the field of regenerative medicine. The Research, Production, and Quality Control departments have a whole battery of Memmert INCOmed246 CO2 incubators available for cell cultivation purposes.

Determining wood density in a drying oven

The Royal Museum of Central Africa (RMCA) in the Belgian municipality of Tervuren is home to one of the world’s most important wood collections (xylarium). The wood biologists at the AfricaMuseum use several Memmert drying ovens to quarantine wood samples and to dry wood in order to determine its moisture content using the kiln-drying method.

Measuring the depth of carbonation in concrete

The standard DIN EN 206 assumes concrete structural components to have a service life of at least 50 years. Corrosion of the steel reinforcement in ferroconcrete caused by its exposure to CO2 (carbonation) can shorten the service life. Holcim HüttenZement GmbH is using a Memmert ICH C climate chamber with CO2 control to find out which characteristics concrete needs to have to minimise carbonation.

Beer-force-ageing test in a cooled incubator

Beer force-ageing tests for precise prediction of the shelf life of beer are commonplace in every brewery. Herrenhausen private brewery performs these tests using an opacimeter to measure scattered light and a Memmert cooled incubator ICP110.

Health care mattresses put to the acid test

Health care mattresses, especially those used to prevent bedsores, are subjected to stringent tests before they can be used in nursing homes or hospitals. MMC (Medical Mattress Care), a Belgian manufacturer of health care mattresses, uses the Memmert heating oven UNB200 to bring its foam test specimens to the temperature required by ISO 1856.

Cell-based assays in the incubator

Prof. Evi Kostenis is the head of a research group at the Institute for Pharmaceutical Biology of the University of Bonn that validated a label-free screening test system for pharmaceutically active substances based on optic biosensors and now uses it for numerous research projects with much success. They use a Peltier-cooled incubator IPP and an incubator I, both by Memmert, to ensure precise temperature control during the assays.

Flooding drill cores in the heating oven

The laboratory of the Harold Vance Department of Petroleum Engineering at Texas A&M University uses five Memmert heating ovens, a vacuum oven and a humidity chamber to research how to improve the exploitation of oil reservoirs.

Comparison of different nanostructures

In a fuel cell measurement station at the Leibniz Institute of Surface Modification, two Memmert heating ovens ensure the correct operating temperature for benchmarking nanostructured, three-dimensional composite electrodes.

Reliable environmental conditions for bioassays

The implementation of bioassays – tests that analyse a substance’s effectiveness on organisms – is one of the core tasks of the Department of Ecosystem Analysis (ESA) at the Institute for Environmental Research (RWTH Aachen University). Two Memmert CO2 incubators and two Peltier-cooled incubators IPP guarantee constant and reliable environmental conditions.

Cuisson d'encres en étuve de séchage

UNION-KLISCHEE est un spécialiste de la sérigraphie, de la tampographie, de l'impression numérique et de la technique de gravure à l'eau-forte. Étant donné que les commandes passées par les sociétés spécialisées dans le domaine des technologies médicales, des technologies de mesure et de capteur, ainsi que de l'ingénierie de précision exigent des impressions particulièrement stables et résistantes à l'usure, les encres sont cuites dans une étuve de séchage.
