Company Profile IMMS GmbH As a strategic partner IMMS offers application-orientated preliminary research and development services for small and medium-sized industrial enterprises in the fields of microelectronics, mechatronics and system design. In the interdisciplinary field between microelectronics and life sciences we are specialised on the development of application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) and electronic sensor components. We offer customer-specific microsystems and sensor solutions for diagnostics, therapy and research also involving retinal and neuronal tissues and bioanalytics. Due to diverse applications and multi-physical effects in biology, biotechnology, chemistry and medicine we integrate our systems into customer’s devices such as microfluidic pumps and channels as well as individual optical sensor components. We conduct both product developments and proof-of-concept studies in cooperation with our industrial and research partner companies. We work closely together with our customers to find individually-made cutting-edge solutions for their life sciences applications. Based on your system requirements and process specifications, we offer: System development for point-of-care testing and in-vitro diagnostics Design of front-end electronics for components from individual sensors and sensor arrays up to autonomous sensor systems Multi-physical detection: - Electric, amperometric, voltammetric, impedimetric, capacitive , etc. - Electrochemical (pH, pNa, …) - Optical Development of systems that include sensors and actuators Surface coatings compatible with ions and biomaterials (DNA, proteins, …) Wireless signal acquisition and transmission to keep biosystems intact Application-specific and biocompatible packaging and encapsulation Currently, there are 90 staff members working at our Institute, which was founded in 1995 as an associated research institute of the Ilmenau University of Technology (Thuringia, Germany). It has a section in Erfurt and its headquarters in Ilmenau.
