This is the second time Pigeon has participated in the SingHealth
Duke-NUS Scientific Congress, and we’re happy to be part of it again. We are able to meet up with the various doctors from the O&G and Paediatrics fields, and it has been a
very fruitful session for us.

Day One, 23 September 2016 | Academia, L2-S1


         1300 – 1320 | Cerebos Pacific Limited

“The Only Clinically Proven Essence of Chicken that Complements Your Active Lifestyle”

Speaker: Dr Sherry Wang Xueying, Lead Principal Scientist, Senior Manager

​        ​ 1330 – 1350 |  BEENET Singapore Pte Ltd

“Manage Student Records and Data, Streamline Internal Business Processes, and Create a
Better Student Experience”

Speaker: Patrick Flynn, Business Development Director, Asia

Technology increasingly enables healthcare and is a critical factor in delivery of care at the back office. Long emerging trends such as cloud computing, mobility and analytics and reporting have been fully realised to allow for the streamlining of and seamless access of services for educators and learners.


Learner Success, Constituent Experience, Operational Efficiency and Institutional Growth are core concepts informing how Ellucian technology can help institutions, such as Royal College of Surgeons, Ireland (RCSI), Medical University of Bahrain (RCSI), to deliver on their mission to provide better care.

​                                       1400 – 1420 | SZ Reach Tech Co., Ltd

“Technology in Education”

Speaker: Jeffrey Lim, Director, PAVE System Pte Ltd


                                                   1435 – 1455 |  Pigeon Singapore Pte Ltd

“Research Finding on Breast Anatomy as well as Breast Milk Composition”

Speaker: Satoru Saito, Research Fellow, Chief Senior Investigator of R&D Center

Our research on breast anatomy by using ultrasound scanning concentrates on the recognition of breast milk accumulation in the mammary ducts and ways of evaluating the effectiveness of breast pumps in emptying them.


For our current research study, we are gauging the effectiveness based on the estimated volume of breast milk in glands and ducts before release, the actual volume that is pumped out, the time taken for the emptying as well as comfort level of funnel vacuum seal of funnel to breasts, etc.


Besides that, the nutritional content of expressed breast milk (fat, protein and carbohydrates) will also be shared based on research findings using mid-infrared instruments.

“Intelligent Image-based Technology for Autonomous Surgical Robotic Control”

Speaker: Klement Low, Product Manager

The growing acceptance of robotic technologies amongst the medical community has resulted in a rapidly expanding demand for robotic surgery that is projected to increase significantly within the next decade. Though most robotic systems have been developed with the purpose of easing surgical procedures, some practical challenges involving the combined coordination of movements of the camera(s) in addition to operating surgical tools, continue to exist amongst systems.


AutoLap is the only image-guided robotic laparoscope positioning system that eliminates some of the most significant challenges by seamlessly guiding the laparoscope in real-time. The result? Surgeons are now able to achieve full and natural control through minimal interaction with the system.

“New Innovations of KARL STORZ - Visualise the Unseen in True Colour”

Speaker: Dr Edin Nuhiji PhD, Marketing Manager Molecular Imaging

Near infrared (NIR) fluorescence imaging has emerged as a cutting edge visualization tool in the surgical arena. Through the use of an NIR optimized imaging system and the systemic injection of a fluorescent agent known as Indocyanine Green (ICG) one can monitor anatomical function in real time. Anatomical structures which can not be delineated under conventional white light illumination only can then be distinguished under NIR illumination. Fluorescence imaging with KARL STORZ enhances the surgeon’s intraoperative experience and expands the clinical information on hand to assist clinical judgment. Fluorescence image guided surgery is a radiation free, rapid, accurate and cost effective anatomical mapping tool which does not require a radiographer or histopathologist on hand to interpret real time images.

The Role of Preanalytical Quality Check Programmes in Improving Sample Quality”

Speaker: Dr Anita Singh, Manager Medical Affairs

Quality and accountability are the focus of current concern in diagnostic laboratories. Studies have indicated that nearly 68% of all errors in laboratory testing are associated with the preanalytical phase.


BD “May I Help You” is an iPad-based observation tool that encompasses all steps in the pre-analytical phase of the laboratory. The observations made are compared against global best practices guidelines and gaps reported through this tool help laboratories get better visibility into several hidden areas of preanalytical process.


The statistical data, qualitative comments and recommendations are presented in a formal presentation with an option to benchmark against similar facilities across the world.
