Technology Transfer at ZEISS: Bridging the gap between academia and industry in Biophotonics

Author(s): Timo Mappes

In the application field of biophotonics – among others, Corporate Research and Technology (CRT) at ZEISS is working on technical solutions with the potential to become viable commercial products within typical timespans of about three to eight years. Via a screening & scouting process promising technological trends, ideas and solutions are identified. Taking business aspects into account, CRT defines studies, and subsequently entire projects that target realizing demonstrator systems incorporating new functionalities relevant for our customers. In order to strengthen existing or to develop future competences, CRT includes academic groups in this innovation process.

Round Robin Experiment

Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.
