On the path of creating portable, hi-res, cloud- and AI-infused fluorescent microscope.
The control of epidemics is of urgent importance. With ever-increasing global connectivity, large-scale outbreaks have seen spreading beyond natural geographical bounds. Furthermore, chronic diseases are affecting more and more people due to increased longevity and the ageing population.
However, the ever-growing expense of professional testing equipment, lack of expertise and professionals, particularly in developing areas, makes it impossible to immediately and accurately monitor each citizen's health in our society.
Our company is a spin-off from a Physics laboratory in HKUST, specialising in fluorescent technologies. We aim to use our expertise in optical technology to produce disease monitoring devices that are compact, easy to use, and affordable, based upon our fluorescent microscopy system. Our main invention is an innovative and modular fluorescent microscopy system. Compared with other fluorescent microscopy systems, it is much more portable, smart (internet-connected), ready-to-use, and affordable with relatively high accuracy (resolution). The downsizing of high-end professional tools can allow for many different application scenarios.
