German term or phrase: rote Biotechnologie
Something to do with biotechnology for medical diagnostics. Does the 'rot' refer to blood or something like that? This is a field in which a genetic engineering company is active.

English translation:red biotechnology
Explanation:
It apparently is a recent acquisition (I'd rather do without some of those) of the German language; you find it translated as 'red biotechnology', but more or less exclusively on websites originating from German speaking countries:
Von der wirtschaftlichen Bedeutung her gesehen am wichtigsten ist die "rote Biotechnologie". Bei ihr geht es hauptsächlich um die Gewinnung von Wertstoffen, zum Beispiel des Insulins für Pharmazeutika, anhand bio- und gentechnischer Stoffumwandlungen.
Greetings,

Nikolaus
