company profile

Fraunhofer ISIT in Itzehoe is one of Europe's most modern research facilities for microelectronics and microsystems technology. The heart of the institute are the cleanroom facilities, big enough to operate not only research projects but also to produce the developed microchips in industrial scale. 190 scientists develop at ISIT in close cooperation with industrial partners power electronic components and microsystems, with fine movable structures for sensors (pressure, movement, biochemical analysis, etc.) and actuators (valves, scanners, micromirrors etc.) including the necessary electronics.

These miniaturized components are used in medicine, in the environment - and traffic engineering, communication technology, automotive industry and mechanical engineering.

The biosensor technology team develops and produces silicon based microsystems for high sophisticated biosensors used in miniaturized and mobile analysis platforms. The research focus addresses especially the topic “microsystems for health”.
