This year’s exhibitor innovations include, for example, a method for the rapid detection of multi-resistant germs. The special feature: Even a single DNA molecule is sufficient for pathogen detection. In the future, the platform will be used in the point-of-care diagnostics of clinics or practices – as an alternative to established PCR analysis or in combination with other diagnostic methods. Also new is an app approved as a medical device for holistic health management. This allows various measuring devices to be connected. Body weight, blood pressure, blood sugar, ECG, sleep, body temperature or oxygen saturation – in the combination of app and hardware, important vital signs are recorded, evaluated and clearly displayed.


The MEDICA segments are: Laboratory technology & diagnostics, electromedicine and medical technology, consumer goods, information and communication technology (digital health) as well as physiotherapy and orthopedic technology. In a suitable addition, COMPAMED (this time in halls 13 + 14) is about the entire spectrum of supplier competence: from individual components, microtechnologies, innovative materials to packaging solutions to special processes such as additive manufacturing or complete contract manufacturing.


Key industry trends and topics such as an increased demand for digital health solutions or the challenges faced by providers in connection with the new EU Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) are reflected not only in the offer of exhibitors, but also in the programs of forums and accompanying conferences integrated into the trade fairs. Following the hybrid event concept, the lectures, discussions or award ceremonies of many of these program elements can be followed with corresponding tickets either on site at the forum stages in the exhibition halls and online via live stream via the industry portals MEDICA.de and COMPAMED.de.
