Products that no one else can do! The returnee doctor brought the "world's only" back to Zhongshan to start a business
According to public information, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), located in Bethesda, Maryland, is the highest-level medical and behavioral research institution in the United States. It was founded in 1887 and its mission is to explore the nature and behavior of life. Basic knowledge of studies.
According to Huang Shaohui, few domestic companies have sold high-end precision scientific research equipment to top foreign research institutions. They were the first to sell high-end precision scientific research equipment to the NIH.
In fact, from the very beginning of the company's establishment, Huang Shaohui's products have attracted much attention.
Huang Shaohui, whose ancestral home is Xiaolan Town, Zhongshan, has lived abroad for more than 30 years. He completed post-doctoral research at Cornell University in the United States, and is an "introduced outstanding technical talent" by the Chinese Academy of Sciences. In 2017, through the "328" activity in Zhongshan, Huang Shaohui returned to Zhongshan to start a business, hoping to quickly industrialize the world's leading scientific research results and start his own business in Zhongshan.
In January 2017, Guangdong Zhongke Aohui Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "Zhongke Aohui") led by Huang Shaohui was officially registered and established on Ma'an Island, Cuiheng New District. Five months after the establishment of the company, NIH put forward the product purchase intention to Huang Shaohui.
◎Why does this device attract so much attention?
According to reports, the main research directions of Huang Shaohui's team are single-molecule fluorescence spectroscopy and ultrafast and super-resolution fluorescence microscopy. The fluorescence correlation spectroscopy technology developed by the team can achieve rapid (several seconds to minutes) quantitative analysis of molecular properties (concentration, size, interaction, etc.) in micro-volume (<20 microliters) solution samples with single-molecule resolution. , drug development, medical testing, environmental monitoring and other fields have broad application prospects.
"Our equipment is the only one in the world." Huang Shaohui said that they industrialized advanced technology and developed a desktop fluorescence correlation spectroscopy single-molecule analyzer, which has the same application field as similar systems produced by international giant Zeiss and other companies. more competitive. Their products overcome the problems of complex operation, high cost, immovability and large size of existing equipment in the world. The traditional equipment alone weighs several tons, but the entire desktop fluorescence correlation spectroscopy single-molecule analyzer weighs only 20 kilograms, and the price is only one-fourth or one-eighth of the traditional equipment.
According to reports, Zhongke Aohui has commercialized this technology, and the desktop fluorescence correlation spectroscopy single-molecule analyzer CorTectorTM SX100 has passed the US FCC certification and CDRH filing.
In December 2018, the CorTectorTM SX100 was officially sold to NIH, and Huang Shaohui led the team to the United States to complete the instrument installation and customer training. In addition, scientific research units such as the University of California, San Francisco, etc. have also become customers of Zhongke Aohui. This product has been included in the first list of recommended domestic instruments of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and was recognized as a high-tech product in Guangdong Province in 2018.
"There is still a difference between running a business and engaging in scientific research. First of all, we need to survive, so we first make products that others can't do." Huang Shaohui said that their entrepreneurial positioning is very clear. First, they focus on the leading technology they have mastered and engage in high-end scientific research. Equipment R & D and manufacturing, stand firm. Then, it will develop peripheral products around high-end scientific research equipment, and develop instant blood donation screening testers and supporting in vitro diagnostic reagents for the field of blood health. It will provide technical and product support for pre-donation blood testing for more than 400 blood stations and mobile blood donation vehicles across the country.
Huang Shaohui experienced the role of changing from a scientific research practitioner to an enterprise manager, and his dream has also been rapidly transformed into reality step by step on Saddle Island.
"Our technology is expertise and there are few competitors, but it is equivalent to competition between primary school students and college students in the market." Huang Shaohui said that Zhongshan City and Cuiheng New District have provided favorable support policies for enterprises and created a good atmosphere for development. Equipped with basketball courts, basketball courts and public canteens, the company quickly gained a foothold. At present, in addition to the marketization of the research and development of high-end scientific research equipment, Zhongke Aohui is also progressing smoothly in the research and development of medical equipment.
Half a year ago, Huang Shaohui's company was still in the incubation base on Ma'an Island. Today, the new company in the Sino-Swiss (Europe) Industrial Park Health and Medicine Demonstration Zone has an office building of nearly 2,000 square meters. It has built a R&D and production center for high-end scientific research equipment and POCT instruments, a GMP workshop for R&D and production of in vitro diagnostic reagents, and precision machinery. Design and machining center, equipped with five-axis CNC machining center, 3D printer, high-precision nano-level stage and other equipment and instruments.
"The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area is already at the leading level in urban construction and many other aspects." Huang Shaohui said that he has lived abroad for more than 30 years and knows the development of world-class bay areas such as the New York Bay Area. He is full of confidence in his future and looks forward to his entrepreneurial dream.
