SUMMARY : The " An accurate, non-invasive prostate cancer detection kit using urine " invented by HKBU and its spin-off company New Life Medicine Technology Company Limited (NLMT), which won the Gold Medal with the Congratulations of Jury and the Thailand Award for the Best International Invention at the 47th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva, which was held in Switzerland from 10 to 14 April 2019.

The innovative test, which can detect the polyamine compounds affected by cancer cells with an accuracy of up to 85%, can be easily used at home as users simply need to mix a urine sample with the patent-pending chemical agent. After a 30 minute wait, users will know if they are likely to have prostate cancer and whether they require further screening and tests.
