Microfluidic Immunoassay Device for Blood Analysis
A microfluidic chip-based mechanism has been developed as a Point-of-Care Testing (POCT) device to replace Lateral Flow Assays (LFA) for fast and convenient blood analysis. The microchip system utilises the principle of immunoassays but with high accuracy and compatibility to different signalling tags, providing a quantitative readout. Conventional immunoassays involve multistep procedure and long process time. While LFAs are fast and convenient, they are qualitative. The device demonstrated a one-step assay that can achieve equal or higher sensitivities than standard methods within significantly shorter total processing time. In a microfluidic device, the sample flows in precisely defined microchannels, which allow better control of fluid behaviour and higher consistency in testing results compared to LFA in which the sample flows by wicking through the porous paper-based material. This technology resides in the assembly of components and materials to immobilise antibodies or antigens onto the chip which can be easily scaled for commercial production. The technology owner is seeking collaborations with manufacturers of IVD devices or Medtech companies to out-license the technology and expand the range of antibodies targets for the microchip.

We transform clients' raw data and/or models into meaningful results through high-quality visual analytics, empowering them to enhance the model based on these explanations. Formal Verification: the technology allows the client to formally verify certain properties of the model, such as its robustness to adversarial attacks, its fairness according to certain features, etc.
A Suite Of AI Tools To Detect And Monitor Neurological Diseases From CT Scans
Neurological diseases are the second leading cause of death. CT scans have been used as the primary modality to diagnose brain abnormalities such as Intracranial Haemorrhage (ICH) and neurodegeneration. Radiologists usually have to deal with an overwhelming scan backlog and writing radiology reports is a time consuming process. Manual segmentation of lesions is tedious and existing heuristics have been shown to overestimate lesion volumes. Clinicians are also wary of the ‘black box’ nature of deep learning models. Hence, an automated tool in the workflow could substantially improve clinical productivity and interpretability is crucial to build trust with clinical stakeholders. Our proposed technology is an AI solution that automates ICH detection and brain tissue segmentation on CT scans, producing accurate volumetric information to assist triaging. Our technology also comes with a set of tools to interact with the AI models and generate reports easily. Moreover, we strengthen our AI transparency with interpretable models. Our platform also focuses on model robustness tests to assure AI safety.  
Rapid Digital Twinning using robotised LiDAR cameras
Digitalisation is a global trend with digital twin technology increasingly adopted in various industrial segments including smart factories and plants, digital facility management and operation & maintenance, building and construction, etc. Rapid generation of digital twin of physically existing is desired. Conventionally, digital twin is mainly generated using design software which requires professional modellers to spend substantial design time pending on the complexity of the physical twin (to be constructed) and the manpower available. Building information modelling (BIM) is increasingly used as a representation for the digital twin. For existing environments, scan to BIM technology and authoring software products are used for the process of reconstructing of BIM models from LiDAR scanned point clouds. This manual process is typically time consuming, tedious and error prone. Often, meshed models are used for visualization purpose of the digital twin.
AI Driven National Platform for CT Coronary Angiography (APOLLO)
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death worldwide. Computed Tomography Coronary Angiography (CTCA), as a non-invasive alternative to invasive catheterized coronary angiography, has emerged as a recommended first-line investigation for CAD. However, the current practice of generating reports involves a time-intensive process, with CT specialists spending 3-6 hours annotating scans. Furthermore, there is a lack of effective tools for analysing coronary calcium scores, stenosis severity, and plaque characterization.

Advanced Electrolyte for Next Generation High-Energy Lithium Metal Batteries
Lithium ion (Li-ion) battery is now the dominant energy storage system in portable electronics and electric vehicles (EV). The rapid expanding EV is driving the demand for next generation high-energy batteries. Compared to conventional Li-ion batteries with graphite anode, which has a theoretical capacity of 372 mAh/g, lithium-metal batteries can deliver ten times of specific capacity (3860 mAh/g). Theoretically, anode-free batteries can double the energy density in volume compared to Li-ion batteries at the cell level. However, current anode-free batteries suffer from faster capacity decay due to poor lithium plating on Cu foil. To overcome this challenge, the technology owner has developed a liquid electrolyte comprising lithium difluoro(oxalate)borate (LiDFOB) and a carbonate solvent, enabling reversible lithium plating of anode-free lithium metal batteries. This electrolyte ensures good thermal stability with smooth Li plating of counter electrode on the anodic side even at elevated temperatures. It facilitates a capacity retention of above 80% after 100 cycles for an anode-free battery or 80% after 400 cycles for a battery with a Li metal anode. The technology owner seeks collaboration with industrial partners such as battery developers and manufacturers for further co-development and test-bedding of electrolyte and subsequent licensing of this technology for commercialisation.
