Against the backdrop of the pandemic, enterprises of Nanshan District accelerate independent research and development, overcome technical difficulties, and produce anti-virus products. The ventilator developed by Mindray, a local technology enterprise in Nanshan, has become a hot product in the world. A number of disease prevention robots developed and manufactured by UBTECH Robotics can monitor temperature and disinfect indoor and outdoor areas, which have been put into use in the Third People's Hospital of Shenzhen and Wuhan Central Hospital. Equipped with thermal imaging components, DJI drones can become thermometers which are widely used on the front lines. The COVID-19 vaccine developed by KangtaiBio has been put into emergency use, becoming the first batch of vaccines produced locally in Shenzhen and even in Guangdong province.
The success of these enterprises originate from the good business environment, impeccable industrial chain and favorable policies. Nanshan has built a comprehensive and multi-level science and technology support system with the innovation ecological chain, helping enterprises to overcome the "bottleneck" and providing momentum for high-quality economic development.
