Highlights of “Taiwan Tech Pavilion”
Winner of the 16th National Innovation Awards-Metallic glass on medical needles led by Dr. Jinn Chu research Team
It’s an application of surface coating as durable lubricity and non-stick properties. Thin-film metallic glasses (TMGs) are amorphous alloys with many possible compositions which enables fine tuning of desired properties. Outstanding properties of thin film metallic glasses are: Low friction, low surface energy, non-stickiness, high toughness, high hardness, good corrosion resistance as well as good wear resistance.
Winner of the 15th National Innovation Awards-Universal microbubbles based combined medical device for promoting local drug delivery led by Dr. Ai-Ho Liao research team
With the innovation of medical detection and diagnostics, new ways to help improve treatment efficiency is important. The universal microbubbles (MB) based combined medical device for promoting local drug delivery. The invention provides an external type MB ultrasound contrast agent of topical uses. The MB ultrasound contrast agent may be applied to a topical region of the body surface of the living body by coating, a non-invasive way, instead of using injection. he MB ultrasound contrast agent may be widely used in medical or beautification fields, to help strengthen the absorption of painkillers after surgery or the absorption of beauty care ingredients.
