Hemocompatibility and Blood Experiments



+49 241 80 89356



The group Hemocompatibility and Blood Experiments, called HBE, consists of members from a range of disciplines for example engineers, scientists, technical stuff which generates a specialized multidisciplinary approach to biomedical engineering.

The groups’ research is focused on the experimental investigation of interactions between biological and technical systems in the field of cardiovascular engineering. A special emphasis lays on the understanding of blood damage for example thrombogenesis, hemolysis due to technical systems as well as the development of experimental test methods on the basis of DIN ISO 10993-4.

The results are implemented in new development approaches and are used to improve existing applications. Thus, they contribute to the development of future cardiovascular devices.
