MIMOS’ photonics project, Detection of Dental Caries via UV Spectroscopy, has scored two awards when it won the Gold Medal at Invention, Innovation & Design Exposition (IIDEX 2021) and Second Place at Selangor R&D and Innovation Expo (SRIE 2021).
It was a collaborative venture between MIMOS and Faculty of Dentistry, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), and was later joined by College of Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM).
MIMOS’ Photonics Technology Lab has produced non-invasive, non-destructive, cost-effective and easy-to-use solutions for dental healthcare. The research collaboration was to further improve diagnoses of dental diseases that can give impacts on patient management, community and ultimately to the nation.
IIDEX 2021 is an annual international exhibition and innovation competition organised by UiTM, serves as a platform for academics, industries and government institutions to promote the incubation, development and commercialisation of ideas and innovation.
SRIE 2021 is a platform for innovators to showcase their latest inventions and ideas to investors, manufacturers and marketers in ASEAN and beyond.
