National Engineering Research Center for Miniaturized Detection System
The National Engineering Research Center for Micro Detection System, is officially authorized by the Ministry of Science and Technology. It is a national base for research and development, technical innovation and industrialization. It was formally established in 2007, with Shaanxi Lifegen Co., Ltd and Northwest University as supporting institutions and brought together many research institutions, superior technologies and industrial resources.
Taking modern biological technology as its core and integrating advanced technologies in many areas, including biology, medicine, pharmacy, chemistry, material science, precision machining, it has accomplished the integration of micro-detection in biomedical field through miniaturization, precision and high throughput of devices.
A research and development team has been established which, at present, is composed mainly of returned personnel and related domestic experts in the field. A platform has been constructed for four core technologies, including research into Biochip Microarray, nano-micron materials and Pharmacogenomics; Individualized Dosage; a protein drug as human blood substitute, and so forth. This has led to the development of a series of products with independent intellectual property rights.
