Jobst Technologies got granted the new project “Microfluidic Lab-on-a-Bird transmitter for the hormone level monitoring of free-moving birds”.

Subject of the project with €1.52 million funding from Max Planck Society Munich, is an autonomous miniaturized laboratory for collecting blood, measuring the level of stress hormones and sending the signal from the free moving bird to the “ground station”. 

Jobst Technologies GmbH will develop the automated blood- sampling- and microfluidic- system enabling integration and operation of the assay. Jobst Technologies’ micropumps and flow rate sensor will also be used as enabling components.

Project partners are the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology and the Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg.

Jobst Technologies got granted the new H2020 Key Enabling Technologies project 737212 – CATCH-U-DNA.

Seven partners aim to enable analysis for free circulating tumor DNA – a major brick in individualized cancer treatment. This project will strengthen Jobst’s vanguard position in performance micro-fluidics and extreme bio-sensing.


Innovative Sensor Technology IST AG, a swiss based company, well recognized for developing and manufacturing physical and chemical sensors of outstanding quality and reliability, member of the Endress+Hauser Group, has acquired Jobst Technologies.

Continuing serving our customers from Freiburg with our full products and services portfolio we are looking forward to offer even more comprehensive supply and development solutions to our current and future customers in this new beneficial setting.
