Joint Lab Bioelectronics
- © IHP/Glogener
Microelectronics and biotechnology are performing a convergence process bringing both disciplines closer together. The process is mainly fed upon the development of methods aiming at the understanding and manipulation of nano-scaled objects. The new discipline of bioelectronics has evolved from this convergence dealing with the integration of electronic systems in biological environments and the study of interactions between both material worlds. One major trend is related to biosensors, where the progressive miniaturization enabled the introduction of micro-sensors into biological systems.
The Joint Lab Bioelectronics was founded by TU Berlin and the IHP – innovations for high performance microelectronics in order to deal with this recent development. The displayed figure is taken from a recent publication on the "Prolonged Corrosion Stability of a Microchip Sensor Implant during In Vivo Exposure"  showing the general chip architecture (top) and a microelectronic viscosimeter chip acting as glucose sensor.
There are current no vacancies available at the Joint Lab.
