In view of the superior advantages of Taiwan on microelectronics design and available fabrication resources, this laboratory is dedicated to research and development of medical microsensors and devices with available facilities and technologies for better and cheaper products. The extended research directions include integrated biosensor design, BioMEMS, system integration, and neuronal inspired intelligent algorithms, especially on biomedical optics, electrochemical sensor, respiratory flow sensor, ANN, and silicon neurons. Current funding focus on the design and development of novel Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) devices, including ActiveSPR and Time-of-Flight SPW (TOFSPW) for surface velocity measurement. Nanoparticle enhanced SPR and surface contact printing with defined nano features for cell chip are also under development. The target applications of these novel optical device and system are disease diagnostic and drug screening. To facilitate the linkage between academic research and industrial development, we also dedicate to establish testing facilities for the safety of medical devices. ISO 17025 is adapted as the laboratory quality system to harmonize with CNLA. The long-term objective is to promote the quality and quantity of novel medical devices for native medical device industry and thus better health care through operatable medical standards and regulations.
