Fraunhofer EMFT is a non-profit research organisation which is located in Munich. The department MAF is working in the field of micro actuators and fluidics.
We develop solutions for your medical applications with micro pumps like micro dosing, vacuum wound therapy, drug delivery (patch pumps, implantable pumps), endoscopy tools.

Micropumps for Medical Applications

What we offer

We are experts on developing solutions for micro fluidic applications.
We offer micro pumps made of silicon or steel and the adaptation to your fluidic system.
It is possible to pump gases and liquids with flow rates of upto 300 µl/min (silicon) rsp. 200 ml/min (steel) against pressures of 500 kPa (silicon) rsp. 20 kPa (steel).
The advantages of our micro pumps are the small size combined with the pump characteristics (flow rate, back pressure). Additionally the pumps are self-priming and bubble tolerant.

What we are looking for

We are looking for industry partners or customers who need help with a micro fluidic application.
From contract work over licensing to a partnership in a publicly funded project everything is possible.
