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...

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...

This technology proposes a sensor for detecting the mechanical behaviors of cells. The present invention relates to a microelectromechanical system (MEMS) sensor device comprising at least one microelectromechanical system sensor to characterize intracellular dynamics and behavior of a living biological cell so as to quantitatively measure the mechanical strength. The microelectromechanical system sensor is responsive to mechanical force changes during said cell's contraction, migration, prolife...

This technology is about an evaluation platform based on a 3D cell culture system. This system is applied in a way of in-vitro; however, it is more similar to in-vivo with high accuracy in drug sensitivity and experimentation compared with the 2D cell culture system. This system has been developed with the aim of replacing animal testing for developing treatments for metabolic syndrome, including obesity and diabetes. Three kinds of experimental equipment have been developed with this technolog...

Cosmetic and pharmaceutical research labs need novel tools and methodologies to conduct in vitro safety, efficacy and disease studies in a more efficient, reliable and ethical way, without using animals, to reach the market faster while lowering their R&D expenses. Current methods include in-vivo animal tests and in-vitro cells viability-based assays which fail to provide accurate and reliable results. We have developed a novel platforms for creating realistic human tissue models in the lab by ...

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 ...

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...

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)...
