Aptamers are oligonucleotides such as RNA and DNA that have characteristics of high affinity and specificity binding to the target which makes them suitable to detect some protein in specifics. These features make aptamers ideal for various applications such as diagnosis and therapeutic tools, biosensing probe and drugs. This invention applies the benefits of aptamers to effectively detect and measure both Human Serum Albumin (HSA) and Glycated Human Serum Albumin (GHSA). Compared to other aptam...

Our CTC technique offers a personalised early cancer detection for patients, tracking cancer metastasis, cancer relapse, and giving prognostic information. The faster doctors can give a solid diagnosis, the more quickly they can save lives. Yet the blood-based or liquid biopsy detection of cancer has always been challenging due to the heterogeneity and small size of CTCs. Having an urgent clinical demand for a more efficient cancer-detecting method, our company has strategically designed a nove...

Every year one in ten people fall ill because of food-borne diseases. F&B industries are using a century old method to detect pathogens which requires a dedicated lab and take takes 5-10 days to get the results. This delay in microbial detection leads to hold-up of inventories, product recalls, disease outbreaks and even, loss of human lives. This technology empowers industries to detect pathogens almost in real-time. Moreover, our device can detect multiple pathogens in a single test with the ...

A novel biosensing platform for the detection of large macromolecules such as proteins being able to operate either in-vivo or in-vitro for medical diagnostic applications, or as a research instrument. This technology is capable of detecting proteins, viruses, and bacteria for a large range of applications depending on the surface functionalisation (antibodies) in various clinical samples, including undiluted serum without non-specific binding which often results in false-positive results. The...

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/ acquired immune deficiency (AIDS) syndrome is a critical infectious disease throughout the world. Long-term treatment with HIV drugs can cause the propagation of drug-resistant strains of HIV-1. Searching for a new treatment to overcome this problem is an active area of innovative research. The rapid assays are needed for a novel PI discovering to replace the current sophisticated techniques. Our team member at the Faculty of Associated Medical Sciences, Chian...

We have developed a proprietary analytical platform that combines tiny molecular machines (biosensors) with a compact reading device to provide minimally trained users with laboratory quality results in minutes.  Our biosensors are proteins engineered to have a customisable detector and a constant signalling module. The signalling uses bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET).  The signal is read on a microfluidic device for speed, ease of use and economy. We developed this technology b...

Several cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers have been recognized and established for AD diagnosis with a high diagnostic accuracy of over 85%. However, the collection of CSF is invasive and causes discomfort and side effects to the patients. On the other hand, the collection of blood, urine and saliva is relatively simple and non-invasive. This detection assay is an immunocomplex based approach with magnetic nanoprobe for sensitive detection of the target biomarkers. Once the target biomarker ...

Infectious diseases are a leading cause of mortality worldwide, influenza alone is estimated to infect between three and five million per year, causing over half a million deaths. Transmission of the disease can occur before symptoms appear, for instance, the incubation period for Ebola is three weeks, allowing it to spread silently for a protracted time. Another example is rabies where incubation time is between 30 - 60 days yet prognosis 7 - 10 days post-infection is almost 100% fatal. Diseas...

The nitrite ion (NO2-) is widely recognized as surface & groundwater contaminants originating from agricultural activities, improper wastewater discharge, and atmospheric precipitation. In addition, nitrite exposure is detrimental to general public health. This technology relates to a detection assay that allows faster and more convenient naked eye nitrite detection (within 1 min and without the use of any instruments). In comparison, the conventional Griess method requires heating and 30 mins i...

Although photodynamic therapy (PDT) has been accepted as a reliable and minimal invasive clinical treatment for cancers, the treatment efficacy is hampered by limitations in cancer cell recognition, molecular imaging, in situ monitoring and depth of light penetration. In light of these challenges, increasing attention is being directed to two-photon absorption photodynamic therapy (TPA-PDT) since near-infrared (NIR) photons can penetrate deeper into tissue and re-emit energy sharply without it b...

Migraine is a common and most disabling disease among the working-age group. One Billion around the world are suffering from migraines. Migraine is characterized by severe head pain, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and sensitivity to light, sound, and movement. To treat migraine successfully, the patients must avoid life-style behaviours and trigger factors, such as food, hot weather, stress that may relate to migraines. The role of taking proper migraine medication, including acute and preventive ...

EBV is a ubiquitous human herpes virus, which spreads through saliva. Infection is very common and most people become infected with EBV when they were young, but they will not develop any symptoms or symptoms that are not distinguishable from mild childhood illnesses. There is ~ 200,000 EBV-associated cancer new cases per year attributes to EBV. EBV causes both infectious mononucleosis and lymphoproliferative diseases. The oncogenic development of other cancers (e.g. nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC)...
