is the international competence network to develop new diagnostic procedures – coordinated by BioLAGO health network around Lake Constance. We link industry with science for innovations!
INTERNATIONAL COMPETENCE NETWORK “DiagNET”
Partners from 3 countries – Germany, Switzerland and Austria!
“DiagNET gives us big boost for transforming our projects into products and finding the right partners for the implementation”
PD Dr. med. Johannes Zander (Labor Dr. Brunner), Christian Fischer-Rasokat (QIAGEN Lake Constance) and PD Dr. Oliver Nolte (Zentrum für Labormedizin)
Leaders of working groups in DiagNET
“DiagNET” aims to develop and apply new diagnostic procedures in an international competence network of industry and science.
DiagNET links companies, research facilities and clinics in the field of diagnostics and its environment. The partners support the project by performing services in research and development, in production, marketing and application.
The main topics of our working groups are: multiresistant pathogens, therapy monitoring, digital diagnostics and lifestyle diagnostics.
The project “DiagNET – diagnostics of the future” aims to develop and apply new diagnostic procedures in a competence network of industry and science in the four-country-region of Lake Constance and beyond. Those diagnostic procedures should be locally applicable in medical practices as well as in laboratories. Thereby long transportation routes to clinics will be avoided and the medical care in rural areas will be considerably improved. The partners support the project by performing services in research and development, in production and marketing, in testing, in application as well as in consultation. The project “DiagNET” is coordinated by BioLAGO e.V., the life science network around Lake Constance.
- Conception of the diagnostic network with companies, research facilities as well as clinics and laboratories (overview of the project partners)
- Development of new diagnostic procedures and improvement of already existing tests
- Establishment of the network and testing of diagnostic procedures for the application.
- Laboratory 4.0 – intelligent digitization and automation for SMEs at Lake of Constance (funded by IBK Small Projects Fund 2015-20: Interreg V Program “Alpenrhein-Bodensee-Hochrhein”)
At the end of the project the competence network continues working on the development and application of new diagnostic procedures. The project “DiagNET – diagnostics of the future” is funded for three years by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund within the scope of the program “Interreg V Alpenrhein-Bodensee-Hochrhein“. The lead partner and funding recipient is BioLAGO e.V. Further project supporters are Landkreis Konstanz and Stadt Konstanz.
Working groups and topics
The following main topics will be discussed in individual working groups with the aim of developing concepts for new and improved diagnostic methods:
- Multiresistant pathogens
Topics (i.a.): rapid testing for multiresistant pathogens, differentiation between bacterial vs. viral infection
Lead: Zentrum für Labormedizin, CH-St. Gallen
- Therapy monitoring
Topics (i.a.): antibiotic concentration in intensive care patients
Lead: Labor Dr. Brunner – Labormedizinisches Versorgungszentrum, D-Konstanz
- Digital diagnostics
Topics (i.a.): centralized data management for decentralized diagnostics, doctor-patient-laboratory communication, point-of-care platforms
Lead: QIAGEN Lake Constance GmbH, D-Stockach
- Lifestyle and diagnostics
Topics (i.a.): biomarker and health-conscious lifestyle (nutrition, physical activity, fasting), health monitoring, metabolic diagnosis
Other proposed topics with the possibility to initiate new working groups are welcome at any time. Contact us!
The international competence network “DiagNET” links companies, research facilities, universities and clinics in the field of diagnostics & analytics and its environment – in the four-country-region of Lake Constance and beyond. Along the value chain the partners support the project by performing services in research and development, in production and marketing, in testing, in application as well as in consultation.
