Bridge between science and industry

As part of an EU program Bürkert hosted a forum for experts in the field of optofluidics from 06 - 07 October 2014. The goal of the event was to establish an active and open exchange between research institutes in the fields of micro- and optofluidics, nanotechnology and photonics. The expert forum, which was attended by about 50 professors and researchers, took place in cooperation with the European Union.

Heribert Rohrbeck, Managing Director of the Bürkert Group, and network member Dr. Dominik Rabus gave the opening address. The agenda continued with technical talks by leading researchers, presentations on current projects and programs as well as workshops on trends and developments in optofluidics. During a visit to the Bürkert Systemhaus in Criesbach the participants learned more about the research and development activities at Bürkert, as well as new products and future projects. The forum for optofluidics experts, whose members include not only Bürkert but also staff from research institutes and universities, meets twice a year. With Bürkert as the coordinator, the event was held at a corporate venue for the first time.

For founding member and Bürkert employee Dr. Dominik Rabus the forum is an ideal opportunity for exchange and cooperation. “It is always fascinating to discover what issues the colleagues are working on at the moment. Optofluidics is a relatively new research field that is only starting to develop fully. The forum gives associates of research institutes access to information within and without the academic environment, therefore making it possible to avoid duplication of effort and to discover synergies. Why search for the solution to a problem for which someone else has already found the answer?”, asks Dr. Dominik Rabus. As a result of the EU optofluidics program, members of the network in the past have already initiated numerous projects dealing with the following subject content:

  • Integrated microfluidics with photonics (innovative optofluidic concepts)
  • Optical inspection and control of minimal fluid quantities
  • Materials and technologies for optofluidic devices and systems

The optofluidics forum was brought into being by the EU-sponsored COST program (European Cooperation in Science and Technology). COST is a cross-sector concept at the European level that promotes cooperation and exchange with respect to new scientific ideas and methods. Established in 1971, COST is regarded as the oldest scientific research exchange program. In addition to the networking concept, other goals of COST are to reduce fragmentation of research investments and to promote international access to the European research area. The program increases the mobility of the researchers and is crucial for the development of the European research area.

Optofluidics is a field of research and technology that combines the advantages of microfluidics and optics. Areas of application for the technology include displays, lenses and sensors, for example. Bürkert’s micro segment is a separate product area devoted to the handling of fluids and gases in extremely small environments. Long-standing cooperation with corporate enterprises in this respect has already led to the development of diverse products and systems that fulfil the varying requirements for handling of small fluid quantities. Classic applications for Bürkert products in this sector are clinical diagnostics, DNA synthesis, medical technology and industrial inket printers. Continued research and development in this field is a matter of great interest to Bürkert.
