Welcome to LSA2018!

Our topics are regulatory affairs for medical devices, microfluidics and artificial intelligence.

The Medical Device Regulation (MDR) transition period ends in May 2020. The designation process of notified bodies (NB) in accordance
with the MDR is presently ongoing. At this stage, manufacturers are lacking information from their NB about requirements they will need to fulfil to bring their products on the European market legally in less than two years. In the Regulatory Affairs session, experts will shed light on some aspects of this doubtful situation. It is organised by Life Science Nord’s Working Group on Regulatory Affairs. We invite you to engage in interactive panel discussions.

The flow of liquids inside and outside the human body plays a key role in medical technology. Safety and reliability of many medical devices and their components, e.g. dialysis machines, infusion pumps, or liquid-handling systems for in-vitro-diagnostics, require safe and reliable dosing of liquids. Experts from academia and industry will discuss their current projects. Research and industrial presentations are accompanied by an exhibition. The session is organised by the Medical Sensors and Devices Lab of the Lübeck University of Applied Sciences.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) continues to be the most hyped, cross-sectional technology today. AI revolutionizes pattern recognition in images and language as well as robotics and autonomous systems. Applications based on deep learning are meant to optimise, i.e. to change their behaviour or the results they produce, during their application in the market. This fundamentally challenges the way of thinking hitherto applied in making rules and regulations for technology. How can future standards safeguard AI and DL-based products? We will look at some technological and ethical aspects of AI- and DL-based applications in medical technology and beyond. The session is co-organised by Fraunhofer MEVIS and the Institute for Electrical Engineering in Medicine of the University of Lübeck.

A common introductory session with key notes, posters, and a table-top industry exhibition will complete LSA2018.

You are most cordially invited!
