INFORMM's Lateral Flow and Biosensors Training/Workshop is now HRDF claimable

INFORMM Penang, 6 October 2023 – INFORMM hosted a highly informative and hands-on workshop on Lateral Flow Assay and Biosensor Technologies from October 3rd to October 5th, 2023. Most importantly, the workshop is INFORMM's first program to be HRDF claimable. 

The event brought together a diverse group of participants from public universities, government agencies, and industries, all eager to expand their knowledge in this field. The workshop featured distinguished speakers, including Dr. Klaus Hochleitner from Cytiva, Germany, and Dr. Warrick Su from PICS. Corp, Taiwan, along with local experts from USM, i.e., Assoc Prof Dr. Aziah Ismail (INFORMM), Assoc Prof Asrulnizam (CEDEC), Dr. Hairul Hisham (School of Chemical Sciences) and Dr. Yazmin from School of Biological Sciences. The workshop's comprehensive agenda covered topics ranging from optical fiber sensing to electrochemical sensors and the development of rapid assays, offering attendees a holistic understanding of the evolving landscape of diagnostic technologies and their vital applications.

Additionally, the regulatory aspects of diagnostic products and the significance of patenting innovations were also highlighted by the representatives from the Malaysia Medical Device Authority (MDA) and Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (MyIPO). The highlight of the workshop was participants had the opportunity to engage in hands-on sessions, refining their skills in gold synthesis, antibody conjugation, the preparation of lateral flow assays, and fundamental microfluidic assay techniques alongside basic electrochemical analysis. This workshop was a significant success, fostering knowledge exchange, networking, and practical learning within the field of biosensor technologies. INFORMM's next program to be HRDF claimable will be the SELEX Technology Aptamer Selection Workshop (Series IV) which will be held on 16 - 18 Oct 2023.
