• To provide R&D tools for supporting research.
  • To provide affordable quality technical services for supporting local research especially startups.
  • To enable knowledge sharing and networking among partner companies.

The Biomedical Technology Support Centre was opened in March 2009 to serve the Biotechnology cluster in the areas of:

  • Therapeutics
  • Diagnostics
  • Medical Devices

The Centre has a total floor space of about 8,700 sq ft. It is a central facility, which comprises Workstation/Utility Room, Culture Room, Freeze Dryer Room, Mass Spectrometry Laboratory, Microscope Room, Genomics Laboratory, Proteomics Laboratory, Bioanalysis Laboratory, Microbiology Laboratory, and Server Room. We provide more than 80 pieces of ready-to-use life science instruments for shared R&D use.

We also collaborate with local universities to expand the scope of the instruments and technical services including expert advice.
