Markus Klotz GmbH
Innovation contest for the promotion of medical technology | Innovation award of the State of Baden-Württemberg
The entrepreneur and engineer, Markus Klotz, is the awards winner 2001 of the innovation contest for the promotion of medical technology hosted by the German Federal Ministry of Research. In the coming two years he will develop in cooperation with Prof. Dr. Rudolf Steiner and his research team at the Institute for Laser Technologies in Medicine and Measuring Technology of the University of Ulm a super-accurate, laser-supported measuring device that records and distinguishes tiny, tagged particles. The 2 µm and 150 µNm particles are graded by size. Concept background: Different molecules or antibodies can be interlinked to these different-sized particles. This facilitates testing techniques for biology and medicine that recognize in a single measuring step up to one hundred different diseases, bacteria, viruses or genetic information.
