New clinical cleanroom manufacturing and training facility launches in Brisbane

The Hon Karen Andrews, Minister for Industry, Science and Technology is opening the Translational Research Institute’s (TRI) new state-of-the-art clinical cleanroom manufacturing and training facility, T3 Cleanrooms, and the inaugural MTPCareers Symposium on Wednesday 14 October 2020.

The new cleanroom facility will help significantly speed-up the translation of Australian medical innovations into clinical practice, and will be available to researchers, start-ups and companies to manufacture sterile products on a small scale.

Professor Scott Bell, CEO of the TRI says the T3 Cleanroom facility is the outcome of a successful partnership with Australian biotech, Vaxxas Pty Ltd, to secure funding from MTPConnect to build clinical manufacturing and training capacity.

Based in dedicated commercial space at TRI, Vaxxas worked with us to identify a critical gap in medtech manufacturing and skills for companies needing to scale-up production for clinical trials, which led TRI

The U.S. Air Force Looks To Advanced Manufacturing To Keep Existing Aircraft Flying And Develop Next-Gen Capabilities

What if there were Olympic events that weren’t physical, but were focused instead on completely geeking out on super-cool breakthrough technologies for real-world aerospace and defense challenges? Even better, what if they offered prize money totaling nearly a million dollars?

Now there are just such events, thanks to the U.S. Air Force’s Rapid Sustainment Office (RSO). In fact, participants in five such Olympic “sports” (or Technical Challenges, as the RSO calls them) have already been competing over the past few months. Those competitions will culminate when the winners are announced during next week’s four-day Advanced Manufacturing Olympics. This virtual conference runs from October 20-23, and features technology demonstrations, expert speakers from both industry and the military, virtual networking opportunities, and the awarding of prized for those Technical Challenges mentioned above.

“RSO is working to revolutionize

Low cost and ease of manufacturing allow for wide application in developing countries — ScienceDaily

Electrical engineers, computer scientists and biomedical engineers at the University of California, Irvine have created a new lab-on-a-chip that can help study tumor heterogeneity to reduce resistance to cancer therapies.

In a paper published today in Advanced Biosystems, the researchers describe how they combined artificial intelligence, microfluidics and nanoparticle inkjet printing in a device that enables the examination and differentiation of cancers and healthy tissues at the single-cell level.

“Cancer cell and tumor heterogeneity can lead to increased therapeutic resistance and inconsistent outcomes for different patients,” said lead author Kushal Joshi, a former UCI graduate student in biomedical engineering. The team’s novel biochip addresses this problem by allowing precise characterization of a variety of cancer cells from a sample.

“Single-cell analysis is essential to identify and classify cancer types and study cellular heterogeneity. It’s necessary to understand tumor initiation, progression and metastasis in order to design better cancer treatment

India has Approved Incentives for 16 Smartphone Companies including Apple’s Big Three iPhone Manufacturing Partners

 

In May Patently Apple posted a report titled “The Indian Government has dropped Contentious Clauses in their new ‘Production Linked Incentive’ Program that could be Positive for Apple.” In order to gain from the new Incentive in India, Smartphone companies had to invest in the country in order to tap into the scheme. In late June we reported on Foxconn making a huge investment in an iPhone plant in India. Last week we reported that Pegatron was going to open a plant supporting Apple’s supply chain for cases in 2021 (2 reports, 01 & 02). In August we reported that Wistron was hiring for its third iPhone plant.

 

Today we’re learning that the Indian government has stated that “it was approving incentives under a federal plan to boost domestic smartphone production to 16 companies, including top Apple suppliers Foxconn, Wistron and Pegatron.” The companies invested as requested and

Massachusetts awarded ‘future of manufacturing’ grant from National Science Foundation

BOSTON – Today, the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced a new ‘Future of Manufacturing’ grant of $499,955 awarded to a collaboration of Massachusetts organizations, which will help the region’s manufacturers pivot their operations to address emerging crises. The project, called ‘Rapid Execution for Scaling Production Of Needed Designs’ or RESPOND, will create a diverse network of transdisciplinary stakeholders across academia and state government that will support and sustain critical ‘super nodes’ that will boost communication between organizations, help accelerate product development, and drive increased manufacturing capacity to address crises like the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Announced on National Manufacturing Day, the grant will be led by UMass Lowell in collaboration with Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative (MassTech), a public economic development agency, to develop a crisis-resilient manufacturing network. The grant will help the Commonwealth of Massachusetts build on the success of
