10 March, Kuala Lumpur - Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) and the Academy of Sciences Malaysia (ASM) have co-organised a Lecture on Acoustofluidics by Professor Thomas Laurell from Lund University, Sweden. During the lecture, Professor Laurell described basic development and design of acoustofluidic systems as well as applications and development of the novel research field. Acoustofluidics is a relatively new research field that combines acoustics with microfluidics to enable gentle yet high performing manipulation of biological matter. Well-defined and localised acoustic forces are used to precisely move cells in a process called acoustophoresis.
Held on 13-14 September 2022, the World Forum for Women in Science, Malaysia 2022 was an opportunity to highlight the role of science in building a sustainable future for all through science, technology, and innovation.
The project aims to develop a system and facility using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) that can capture biodiversity and environmental data in a precise and near real-time manner.
