LKCMedicine expert leads student team in developing cheap, portable lab tools from everyday items

LKCMedicine Associate Professor of Human & Microbial Genetics Eric Yap led a team of students from LKCMedicine and NTU School of Biological Sciences in developing a full suite of diagnostic lab tools from basic everyday items. This was part of an NTU-wide project called Undergraduate Research Experience on Campus, which enables students to participate in a research project alongside their studies.
The five students developed tools for DNA separation, detection of antibiotic resistance, fungal and bacterial incubators as well as a device that that can run repetitive tasks such as pipetting.
