Your partner for the development of new technologies

The research and development projects of Fraunhofer EMB are given a new dynamic due to society's desire for a sustainable bio-based economy. Our technologies address global challenges such as climate change, the decline in biodiversity as well as the problem of increasingly scarce resources and usable space with a simultaneously growing world population.

In particular, biotechnology shows its key role as a driver and pioneer for new technologies and manufacturing processes.

The competencies and business areas of the Fraunhofer EMB have the prospect of securing biodiversity, optimizing the food supply and maintaining the health of the population through healthy food and innovative medical processes. This is not about improved long-term therapy but about regenerative healing.

We look forward to giving you impulses together with new technologies and products of the bioeconomy.

The EMB is an associated part of the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Individualized and Cell-Based Medical Engineering IMTE.

COVID-19 antibody test: Fraunhofer EMB supports EUROIMMUN AG

For the production of new serological test systems for COVID-19 diagnosis, the Fraunhofer EMB provides its laboratory infrastructure and expert knowledge.


Fish cell cultures help fight viral fish diseases

In a new project funded by the BMBF, the Fraunhofer EMB is establishing cell cultures from salmon and trout that can be used in the development of vaccines against orthoreoviruses.


In vitro diagnosis of asthma

Worldwide, more than 235 million people suffer from asthma. Early diagnosis is important for dangerous respiratory diseases. Unfortunately, several test methods cannot be used with children. An EMB research team is devoting itself to this problem by developing an innovative rapid test.


Improved nutrition for Malawi’s rural population

The Fraunhofer EMB and its partners have taken a whole package of measures to improve the precarious food situation in Malawi: with new breeding facilities, optimized breeding protocols, new, protein-rich fish feed as well as training and education programs.
