Multilevel Antimicrobial Polymer (MAP-1) coating
Prof King Lun Yeung has developed MAP-1 coating which is effective in killing viruses, bacteria and even hard-to-kill spores. It can inactivate up to 99.9% of highly-infectious viruses such as measles, mumps and rubella, and 99.99% of the surrogate feline calicivirus (FCV) - a gold standard for disinfection efficiency and is more resistant than coronaviruses such as the one responsible for COVID-19 epidemic. The technology has been licensed to Chiaphua Industries Ltd. (CIL) in 2019.
Smart Geo-fencing Technology for Home Quarantine
Researchers of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) have developed a novel geo-fencing technology, offering a smart core solution that helps save the government’s manpower in monitoring those under compulsory home quarantine amid the novel pneumonia (COVID-19) outbreak.
