In the event of an impending global flu pandemic, vaccine production could quickly reach its limits, as flu vaccines are still largely produced in embryonated chicken eggs. Udo Reichl, Director at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems, and his colleagues have therefore been working on a fully automated method for production in cell cultures that could yield vaccines in large quantities in a crisis.

Malaria Medications from Waste

September 10, 2014
All of the best currently available pharmaceuticals against malaria can now be produced in pure form using a single process, even from the waste of the plant-extraction. The method which has been developed allows for the complete production of anti-malaria medicines, in a continuous fashion, utilizing one reactor at one location. The process can also utilize both artemisinin and the plant waste product to produce these medicines, allowing for more material to be used and medicines produced without having to increase the amount of material farmed. The ability to utilize multiple sources for production builds on the photochemical reactor developed two years ago by the same scientists in Berlin. In collaboration with Prof. Andreas Seidel Morgenstern from the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems, it is possible, for the first time, to produce multiple medicines – pure – in a continuous and automated fashion utilizing a single process. The purity of the final compounds exceeds the limits set by certification authorities such as the WHO and the FDA. [more]

Project "Optimal Damping of Vibrating Systems" funded by the Zeidler-Forschungs-Stiftung

January 14, 2014
In real physical systems, which possess elasticity and mass, dangerous vibrations are a typical phenomenon. For the majority of engineering applications, resonance and sustained oscillations can cause structural damage. The way to reduce that is through damping. Prof. Dr. Peter Benner's research group and a team from the University of Osijek (Croatia) are devoted to optimization of damping of vibrating systems. The Zeidler-Forschungs-Stiftung supports their research with € 50,000. [more]
