On October, 31, BonnaMed-Fassbender Instrumente closes its store at Markt 6. Fassbender Instrumente – a medical equipment company – was established in Jena 80 years ago. After 30 years in business the company closed its doors in Thüringen shortly before the Wall’s erection. In 1960 the company was re-established in Bonn. During the past half century BonnaMed-Fassbender developed more than 50 medical diagnostic instruments that were made by KaWe, Faromed and ZellaMed. A large collection of these historical instruments can now be seen at Prof Heinen Museum in Munich.
