18 Aug, 2022

The 8th Hong Kong University Student Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition

Awardees: Dr. FU Xinlei (Ph.D. Graduate, MAE), Dr. ZHONG Qiuyuan (Honorary Research Associate, MAE), Dr. XU Xiayi (Honorary Research Associate, MAE) & Prof. CHEN Shih-Chi

Award: Second Prize

Supervisor: Prof. CHEN Shih-Chi

Project Description:

Precision Cut Limited is founded by a team of experts in precision engineering and biomedical engineering from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. We are dedicated to developing solutions of precision tissue sectioning and cutting via various technologies. The proposed product is the ultrafast oscillating blade microtome for precision tissue sectioning. The new microtome successfully addresses the existing challenges for the commercial products. The highest blade oscillating frequency (up to 350 Hz) and minimal error motion (< 1 µm) ensure excellent cutting capability, which will generate great commercial value in the fields of pathology and biophotonics.
