TOXI-triage - FOCUS exercise (Athens)

17/Oct/2018

Imagine a CBRN crisis and blue light responders in the middle of the chaos deploying sensors, drones and using hand-held detectors to get meaningful CBRN information to enable situation awareness. Imagine these responders’ teams tagging casualties and tracking them and their medical treatments. Imagine a command and control room where all this information is retrieved and centralized for the crisis commander, enabling informed decision making, facilitating an effective response and accelerating the recovery. That all happened at TOXI-triage FOCUS exercise in Athens last October.

ISIMS 2018 (Calgary, Canada)

22/Jul/2018

The 27th International Conference on Ion Mobility Spectrometry (ISIMS) took place in Calgary, Canada, from 22nd July to 27th July.

This conference was organized by the International Society for Ion Mobility Spectrometry. The aim of this society and their annual conferences is to promote the use of IMS. Ion Mobility Spectrometry is the lead technology for chemical agent detection and it is widely used in TOXI-triage. Some of our partners are members of the IMS Society board of directors.

This year TOXI-Triage related work was presented doubly:

The International Association of Breath Research (IABR), organizes international conferences with the goal of providing an opportunity for researchers to meet and discuss important topics associated with breath chemical analysis, sensor instrumentation and biomarker detection and identification strategies.

1st DGKM-CBRN Forum (Berlin)

5/May/2018

Christoph Amelunxen from the University of Paderborn presented "TOXI-triage - Introduction to an EU-Development Project" at the 1st DGKM-CBRN Forum on 5th May in Berlin, Germany.

The1st DGKM-CBRN Forum focused on medical mission management and medical care in a mass casualty of CBRN-contaminated patients.
The aim of this forum is to provide, via selected scientific contributions and practical demonstrations, with a platform for professional exchange and networking opportunities on the topic of CBRN-related medical protection.

Expert Evaluation Panel (Moreton in Marsh)

17/Apr/2018

With just 18 months to project completion, the Expert Evaluation Panel (EEP) Meeting in April in Moreton in Marsh will critically evaluate plans for the FTX and ensure that we are on track for the final push to successful completion.

The panel of experts will be composed by CBRN End User experts from Police, Fire, Ambulance, Military and Hospitals.
The purpose of their review is to assess and ensure that the planned FTXs will enable suitable evaluation of the project technologies.
