Students and scientists at the Viet Nam National University Ho Chi Minh City (VNUHCM) have carried out extensive research and developed products that help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Viet Nam's University of Science developed a technology to produce protein from Ecoli bacteria at low cost for COVID-19 antibody tests. The VNUHCM's National Key Laboratory of Digital Control and System Engineering (DCSELab) collaborated with the Centre of Science and Technology Development for Youth designed several COVID-19 assistive devices;
Scientists at the Bach Khoa Research Centre for Manufacturing Engineering at the University of Technology have also made a mobile disinfection system with air filters to ensure clean air is discharged in the environment. The technology has been transferred to companies for commercialization and mass production.
A research team at the University of Technology's material technology faculty has made masks that could be used by healthcare workers for continuous hours. Research team also developed preventive clothes, goggles and masks with a bacteria and air filter membrane to avoid infection. Another team made automatic machine for sewing masks from anti-bacterial clothing. Besides, the university's lecturers and students made goggles that keep out aerosols from patients using 3D printing technology and sanitizers.
