||PCT/SG2014/000439||AGENCY FOR SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH||YI, Guangshun|
The present invention relates to a method for synthesizing an optionally substituted furoic acid by dehydrating a biomass and oxidizing the optionally substituted furan derived from the dehydration reaction. Water extraction has been incorporated as a step between the dehydration and the oxidation in order to purify the intermediate optionally substituted furan before having it oxidized. Prior to this water extraction, the organic solvent used for dehydration may be separated by evaporation. The provision of the water extraction allows impurities to be separated from the intermediate optionally substituted furan.

||PCT/SG2014/000445||SINGAPORE HEALTH SERVICES PTE LTD||YAM, Hin-Fai, Gary|
The present invention relates to corneal stromal keratocytes (CSKs) culture. In particular the present invention relates to a method for culturing corneal stromal keratocytes ex vivo. The method utilises a dual culture medium protocol. In the presence of serum (in particular low serum concentration) in a first culture medium A, the "activated keratoctyes" are expandable while specific CSK gene expression is maintained in serum-free ERI condition in a second culture medium B. The invention also relates to culture medium A and B which is supplemented with liquid amnion extract or other additional supplements. This protocol also applied to CSK from other species. Additionally, the present invention provides method for CSK cultivation to provide sufficient quantity of genuine CSKs for corneal tissue engineering without a risk of fibroblastic changes.

WO/2015/041602 COMPACT CAMERA MODULE ARRANGEMENTS THAT FACILITATE DAM-AND-FILL AND SIMILAR ENCAPSULATION TECHNIQUES||WO||26.03.2015|
||PCT/SG2014/000440||HEPTAGON MICRO OPTICS PTE. LTD.||ALASIRNIÖ, Jukka|
Compact camera module can include auxiliary spacers to facilitate use of dam-and-fill encapsulation techniques. An encapsulant disposed on side edges of the auxiliary spacer can close off a gap between the auxiliary spacer and a support on which an image sensor is mounted so as to substantially seal off an area in which bond wires or other components are located. In some cases, the thickness of a transmissive substrate in the module can be reduced near its periphery to provide more head room for the bond wires, which can result in a smaller overall footprint for the module.
