Osteoporosis and osteolabs
An overview of the disease, the science behind osteotest and application of osteotest
A lecture by the doctors Dr. med. Michael Müller, Prof. Dr. Anton Eisenhauer and Dr. med. Thomas Lorentz from Kiel, on the topic of "Avoiding bone fractures, early detection of osteoporosis".
How does osteoporosis develop, what can be done against it.
NDR Visite contribution from 23.02.2021
NDR Visite report about osteoporosis. Osteoporosis sufferers often do not notice the loss of bone mass for many years, and some patients are not treated properly.
EARTO Innovation of the month: Helmholtz Association – Slowing down osteoporosis
EARTO Innovation Awards Impact Delivered - First Prize winner 2020: Helmholtz Association developed a novel non-invasive biomarker (CIM) method, which contributes to early diagnose calcium loss and osteoporosis in humans.

Detecting bone loss early - a new diagnostic approach from marine research
Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Anton Eisenhauer presents a new diagnostic approach for the early detection of bone loss. For this, he uses findings from marine research and shows parallels between corals and human bones.

Kiel marine researchers want to detect osteoporosis at an early stage
Six million women and two million men in Germany suffer from osteoporosis, so-called bone loss.
Marine researchers from Kiel, of all places, now want to tackle this widespread disease - with the help of corals. They are supposed to detect osteoporosis at an early stage.

New premises are opened in the presence of the Schleswig-Holstein Minister of Economic Affairs
As Economics and Technology Minister Dr Bernd Buchholz said, osteolabs is "a wonderful example of successful and creative technology transfer in Schleswig-Holstein". At the interface of marine research at GEOMAR and the strong life science knowledge in northern Germany, market-ready ideas for use in medical diagnostics have emerged that are now also bearing their first fruit internationally.
About the test procedure
How the test works
Women can take the new osteoporosis test from osteolabs.de at the age of 50, for example at the beginning of the menopause. With the new test from osteolabs.de, osteoporosis can be detected reliably and much earlier than with the conventional X-ray method RXA. This ensures fewer problems and a better quality of life in old age.
Strong together: the health industry in Schleswig-Holstein
Report from the Kieler Nachrichten of 21.11.2020.
Medical products, medicines and digital health applications from Schleswig-Holstein are in demand worldwide. This is because companies and research here are jointly developing solutions for the challenges of today and tomorrow.
Foundation honours researchers
Report from the Kieler Nachrichten of 17.09.2020.
For the development of a "non-invasive in vitro test for the early detection of osteoporosis", Prof.Dr. Anton Eisenhauer and Dr. Stefan Kloth were awarded the Innovation Transfer Prize by the Prof.Dr.-Werner-Petersen Foundation.
Innovation Award for Bone Test
Report from Medical Tribune 40/2020
The early detection of osteoporosis is of great importance. Until now, bone density has been determined using dual X-ray absorptiometry. A new blood or urine test does not require radiation. The method has now won an innovation transfer prize from the state of Schleswig-Holstein.
Learning from corals
Report from the magazine wirtschaft zwischen Nord- und Ostsee, issue Kiel June 2020.
One question in particular spurs Prof. Anton Eisenhauer, marine researcher and scientific director of osteolabs GmbH: What can we learn from corals about bone loss?

Corals help to detect osteoporosis
What do oceans and osteoporosis have in common besides the same initial letter? Hard to believe, but actually a lot. Because both coral reefs and our bones need calcium to remain stable. Researchers at the Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research in Kiel have applied their knowledge of corals to the human bone skeleton and developed a test that can detect osteoporosis at an early stage, as reported by NDR Info Perspektiven.

Researchers unite against common ailments
WELLINGDORF. Take chemical knowledge from the depths of the oceans and combine it with medical knowledge about bone loss: The Kiel-based Geomar Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research celebrated its first spin-off, Osteolabs GmbH, which aims to facilitate and accelerate the early detection of the widespread disease osteoporosis with a simple method. The goal of the new company is to bring this novel method to market as a medical product.
