Course Outline Skills Course Reference Number: TGS-2021009130 (40 training hours) The programme employs the Learn-Practise-Implement™ (LPI™) pedagogy, where fundamental knowledge and principles taught will be reinforced with hands-on practices. Photo by Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) Lab-on-a-Chip and LEARN- Optical imaging and microfluidics PRACTISE- spectroscopy in POCT Miniaturizing medical diagnostic instrument and devices into Point-of-Care (POC) products needs specific IMPLEMENT™ knowledge and skills regarding the microfluidics and Lab-on-a-Chip, immune-sensing and optical detection, Point-of-Care Test (POCT) Tissue culture and nuclei acid and cell analysis, and organ-on-chip testing. This course is designed to bridge the gaps. Diagnosis (LPI™) Organ-on-a-Chip Fluorescence microscopy Point of Care (POC) testing is defined as medical diagnostic testing at or near the patient. Now, rapid testing Immunoassay and and spectroscopy has increasingly become part of the effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. Microfluidic Lab-on-a-Chip biosensing Turn laboratory protocol technologies offer three main advantages to POCT diagnostics: smaller sample volumes, lower test costs, into miniaturized POCT and faster turn-around times. These advantages are increasingly being leveraged to develop POCT devices Molecular Diagnosis: to detect and diagnose a host of conditions, spanning from infectious diseases to cancer. Automated nuclei acid test product This course module is designed for and targeted at engineers or PMETs who are interested in the knowledge Upon Completion of the Programme and skills of product development of Point-of-Care Testing (POCT). Covering the knowledge and skills for immune-sensing and optical detection, molecular diagnostics and cellular analysis in the application of Participants will be awarded with a certificate of miniaturized medical diagnostics, as well as the practical methods about developing new POCT products, attendance by SIMTech. which are mostly medical instrument and cartridges or cassettes.
