Thuringian Winners of the “Young Researchers” Competition from IPHT

The Thuringian winners of the “Young Researchers” competition in the working world category are a group from IPHT: Jakob Dieckmann, Bastian König, and Lukas Fritzsche from Jena developed an inexpensive handheld device for finding DNA sequences from a hardware store case and material totaling 110 EUR. Such devices generally cost more than 5000 EUR. more...


InfectoGnostics Researches New Methods of Determining Multidrug-resistant Tuberculosis Pathogens

Tuberculosis is one of the most common and serious infectious diseases. The number of multidrug-resistant pathogens is rising, which makes treatment more difficult. Only the quick detection of the pathogen and its possible resistance to antibiotics ensures optimal treatment and prevents the further spread of the airborne disease. Scientists, doctors, and medical device manufacturers from the Jena Research Campus InfectoGnostics are developing a new method of testing to quickly and reliably diagnose tuberculosis pathogens and their potential resistance on site.
