On-line Process Analytics Demonstration Workshop

Motivated by “Industry 4.0” requirements we are preparing a many-faceted one-day program that will highlight the potential of microfluidic analysis systems and sensors for process control in the most diverse application areas of process manufacturing. This will include the monitoring of physical, chemical or biological parameters in applications such as chemical processing, contamination detection in food & beverages or oil analysis.

The event will start in the mid-morning with a presentation by Frank Grümbel from Lanxess Deutschland GmbH dealing with Process Analytical Technology, its great potential for industrial applications and the respective implementation challenges for Industry 4.0. Afterwards Michael Baßler, head of the “Analysis Systems and Sensors Division” at Fraunhofer ICT-IMM will provide you an insight of how we match our in-house capabilities regarding the development of analysis systems and sensors with customer specific needs.

Benefit from live demonstrations of our systems, sensors and technologies during a guided lab tour after lunch:

Lab station 1: On-line Monitoring of Chemical Composition
Optical measuring technology, aqueous solutions (e.g., DSP solution), dispersionless technique, high accuracy, minimal acquisition time, wafer cleaning.

Lab station 2: Microfluidic Cell Counting
Optical fluorescence measurement, continuous flow, on-line, fully automated, measurement and detection of two wavelengths, cell number, differentiation of cells, single particle detection.

Lab station 3: Multi-Parameter On-line Oil Monitoring
Optical transmission spectroscopy, non-dispersive, simultaneous monitoring of several parameters, flow-through cell, autonomous, thermophile detector.

Lab station 4: Continuous On-line Determination of Ion Concentrations
pH determination, flow-through, ppm range, potentiometric detection, sample preparation, continuous sampling, autonomous, continuous process control, µl-samples.

Lab station 5: Particle Analyzer
Dynamic light scattering, continuous process, tuning particle size by real-time feedback, adaption for other particle systems and processes, high flow rates, wide particle size spectrum.

Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
