Automated Self -Cleaning Solar Powered Mobile Ultrafiltration Unit

The ultrafiltration system developed is a mobile unit that can be dispatched to any site in a very short time and is able to process significant quantities of water in 500-1000 L/h range, depending on the quality of raw water. The UF system, which uses solar energy, could treat and render water from hills, rivers, wells and rains to make it safe for consumption. The unit was found useful in converting flood and river water to drinking water during the severe floods.

Haploidentical bone marrow transplant (Bubble Boy)

Prof. Hany and her team have modified the technique which allowed "half-matched" human leucocyte antigen (HLA) to be transplanted without risking fatality, and a personalized chemotherapy regimen to remove remaining bone marrow. This opens the very real possibility that anyone who needs to be saved by a bone marrow transplantation can have this procedure even if they do not have a suitably matched donor.

Bionic Leg

The innovations in the prosthetic leg suspension enabled a cyclist to cover long distances without discomfort. In 2013, an amputee had completed 1092km of continuous cycling over six states of Peninsular Malaysia, an achievement recognized by the Malaysia Book of Records. BioApps Sdn. Bhd., a spin-off company started its operation since January 2015, provides prosthetic and orthotic services combined with personal consultations tailored to the specific individual needs, using the most advanced products and manufacturing techniques available today.

​​​​​​Project ROSE

Project ROSE is an initiative from the University of Malaya (UM) and the Malaysian Ministry of Health (MoH) to set a new approach to cervical screening that integrates the latest advances in self‐sampling, HPV screening and digital health platforms to effectively respond to the needs of Malaysian women.

It empowers women to take their own cervical screening sample and having the initial result sent to them via SMS that same day.

Nanomag Slurry

NBR (nitrile- butadiene rubber) gloves are used extensively in the food and pharmaceutical industries when handling products. However, poor elasticity of NBR may cause small pieces of the glove to be torn away during the manufacturing process and mixed with the products. “Glove contamination” is an all-too-familiar phrase. 

University of Malaya researchers came up with this present invention which relates to a method for producing an iron oxide nanoparticle that may be formed as a stable slurry. A magnetically detectable glove comprised of at least one layer of the polymeric material that includes coated iron oxide nanoparticles. The new form of coated iron oxide nanoparticle has better magnetic properties and remains homogeneously dispersed in a liquid over an extended period. Nanoparticles and/ or the slurry have small particle size and excellent dispersion properties in a polymer matrix when a coating layer is formed on the said iron oxide nanoparticles. The nanoMAG slurry is measured using Vibrating Sample Magnetometer (VSM) for its magnetisation strength. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) is used to measure the nanoMAG’s nanoparticle size as targeted.

Outdoor Lighting System

The Eco-GreenergyTM Outdoor Lighting System combines the hybrid green energy generation system and energy-saving lighting. It is a compact system that harmoniously integrates a wind turbine, solar panel and the omni-direction- guide-vane (ODGV). The ODGV is designed to surround the VAWT for wind power augmentation. It is mounted on the pole and used to create a venturi effect to increase the wind speed before the wind-stream interacts with the wind turbine blades. The solar panel is mounted on the top surface of the ODGV for solar energy generation. The unique design of the ODGV that shrouds the wind turbine rotor provides a safer and more secure environment for maintenance workers and the public. The green energy generated from this wind-solar hybrid system is utilized to provide green power to the lighting system and other optional systems. LED light is preferred since it is both energy savings and long-lasting. Extra power generated (after fulfilling the lighting requirement) can be stored in a battery or used to supply energy demand of other appliances or fed into the grid line. The overall “clean” impression of the product compared to other conventional wind-solar lamp posts serves as an added advantage for this product.
