The objective is to develop biomedical detection system based on precision spectrum, all the running projects and feasibility studies within team are also funded to satisfy our long vision which is to develop advanced biomedical instrument and equipment.
By taking advantage of the physical characteristics of different spectral bands of multispectral spectrum, our team promotes the application of precision spectral biomedical detection technology in biology and biomedicine through well-organized research on cells and tissues. We are also developing precision spectrum biomedical detection and analysis instrument for biomedical auxiliary diagnosis. The multispectral fingerprint information of biological tissues was re-constructed by exploring the characteristic spectrum of different biological structures and influencing factors in vivo and in vitro. Based on the construction of multi-band spectral analysis suitable for biological tissue or structure detection, the real-time multi-spectral analysis system can be realized, which may provide auxiliary support for further medical diagnosis.
