Based on our research, we are developing, for example, sensor systems for in vitro diagnostics that enable individual, decentralised health monitoring for everyone with electronic rapid tests.
With these point-of-care tests, various applications will be made possible, such as daily health checks at home, detection of infectious diseases, allergies, genes (DNA), antigens, antibodies, cells, food and drinking water tests, (micro) nutrients, vitamins, etc.

Eric Schäfer and his team research Integrated sensor systems, especially CMOS-based biosensors, ULP sensor systems and AI-based design and test automation. The results are being incorporated into research on the lead applications Sensor systems for in-vitro diagnostics and RFID sensor technology. It will assist you with services for the development of Integrated circuits and with IC design methods.
The IMMS is developing a CMOS image sensor for time-resolved fluorescence detection for direct integration into microfluidic cartridges using 3D screen printing.
The IMMS is developing a SPAD-based sensor for time-resolved readout of fluorescence-labelled DNA microarrays.
IMMS researches image sensors for chemiluminescence assays with Thuringian industry and institutes from Erfurt-Südost and Jena

“IMMS demonstrated great commitment in responding to the huge challenges on the development of the point-of-care test. Our experience demonstrates that IMMS application-oriented analyses, understands and models the biochemical processes. Furthermore, the colleagues implement the specifications with their integrated system design and are flexible in adapting the systems as necessary.”
