About

Andreas BietenbeckWelcome to my site. I am Andreas Bietenbeck. I work as a researcher at the Institut für Klinische Chemie und Pathobiochemie at the university hospital Klinikum rechts der Isar of the Technische Universität München, Germany.

I am interested in laboratory tests that are performed close to the patient. This is called point-of-care testing (POCT). Important examples include glucometers that allow patients to measure their own blood glucose levels at home. Blood gas analyzers, another POCT-device in widespread use, determine a range of analytes on site in many intensive care units without the need to send blood samples to a central laboratory.

I also try to introduce computationally intensive methods to clinical practice. My topics encompass bioinformatics and medical informatics. I usually code in R programming language because of its great "ecosystem".

I have created this website to better communicate my work. This is important as most of my projects are interdisciplinary. Any feedback is always welcome, please use contact [at] bietenbeck [dot] net to write me an email.

I use piwik to analyze if this website is actually worth the keeping.
