NARLabs leads Taiwan in 3D printing medical materials to build up the value of industry

Facilitated by TIRI, the ThinTech Materials Technology Company (TTMC) has conducted a series of certified biosafety tests and become the first Taiwanese manufacturer to pass preclinical animal trials for biomedical grade 3D printing metal powder. With the 3D printing equipment developed by Tongtai Machine & Tool Company, TTMC has printed metal medical products which have passed ISO 10993 biocompatibility testing...more

Red traces of evidence: The ecchymosis imaging system

The TIRI of NARLabs has successfully developed the Ecchymosis Imaging System. With testimony from internationally renowned forensics expert Dr. Henry Lee, the system performs complete and comprehensive identification of ecchymosis, which is typically invisible at the early stages of injury. This system is the most effective tool built for criminal forensics in Taiwan, in that it facilitates protecting the rights and interests of the general public...more

Indocyanine green fluorescence onsite visualization and assessment system for optical guided surgery

The Indocyanine Green (ICG) Fluorescence Onsite Visualization and Assessment System (iFOVAS) for optical guided surgery project has been funded by the National Science and Technology Council's Germination Program for supporting the development of medical devices with high market potential. The iFOVAS is a state-of-the-art imaging system developed by a multidisciplinary team from National Taiwan University Hospital (NTUH), (TIRI, the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering of National Taiwan University (NTU-CSIE), and Wan Fang Hospital...more

An ultra rapid diagnostic chip for detection of pathogen form human blood

The 5-minute test technology allows a fast detection of the pathogenic bacteria of acute septicemia and bacteremia! The "An ultra rapid diagnostic chip for detection of pathogen form human blood", invented by the southern unit of the National Nano Device Laboratories (NDL) of NARLabs. This chip can assist doctors to diagnose whole bacteria from human blood in five minutes without any expensive and time-consuming processes/measurements, such as the antibody modification, biochemical reaction and the DNA measurement that needs to disrupt the cell. based on the detected fingerprint spectrum analysis, the technology has successfully detected the three most popular pathogenic bacteria: Staphylococcal aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli...more
