Medical Device and Diagnostics

With a medical electronics system at the core, electronic, optoelectronic and information technologies are integrated with such biotechnologies as molecular biology and biochemistry with a view to developing distributed medical electronics and imaging devices. Emphasis is placed on the development of early-warning systems for cardiovascular diseases and devices for the diagnosis and treatment of sleep-disordered breathing.

They hold great potential for clinical applications as they have proven effective in processing biomedical signals rapidly and enhancing the reliability and effectiveness of examination and testing. The emergence of preventive medicine has fostered greater demand for diagnostics and monitoring devices. With a minimal blood requirement and rapidity and accuracy as its goals, the Lab is geared towards the development of in vitro diagnostics technologies meant for point-of-care applications, molecular diagnostics, and gene chips. It has already come up with micro portable devices that make diagnostics and monitoring much easier.
