NCKU School-Based Startups Exhibited High Business Values technology in Bio International Convention

Riche enhances the efficiency of nucleic acid amplification by the photo-thermal conversion of nanoparticle so that the most accurate molecular detection can be completed within half an hour, which greatly shortens the original detection time. This technology can be applied to the detection of pathogens that give rise to the infectious disease in the nursing home as well as the detection of infectious diseases in the agricultural industry and aquaculture industry. MEDIVISIONTECH develops an upper gastrointestinal bleeding monitoring system that assists medical personnel in accurately determining and monitoring the early and postoperative acute gastrointestinal bleeding, reducing the burden on the medical staff, improving patient prognosis, and reducing medical expenses. GEcoll uses genetic engineering technology to develop biomaterials that are most suitable for human use, with a focus on regenerative medicine and the development of medical devices using humanized biomaterials. This technology can be applied to anti-cancer drug screening, aesthetic medicine, and 3D bio-printing in the future. JEN-WEI BIOTECHNOLOGY has successfully identified key proteins in the body that cause abnormal inflammation and has developed new targeted drugs to treat various inflammatory diseases such as cancer, fibrosis, degenerative and autoimmune diseases. In the future, the startup aims to create a broad-based drug that can treat a variety of diseases.
