The ICETLAB is located in the Clinical Sciences Building at the Prince Charles Hospital, the largest cardiac hospital in Queensland. The laboratory is situated close to the clinical arena with only a two minute walk to surgical theatres, intensive care units and wards. This state-of-the-art research centre provides a world-class environment for medical engineering research development and commercialisation. The laboratory offers a rich suite of equipment for collaborative in-depth research including a systemic and pulmonary mock circulation loop, blood circulation loops, high performance computers, 3D printing technology and small mechanical and electrical workshops. Through our links with local universities, we have access to high end electrical and mechanical workshops (QUT, UQ and Griffith), particle image velocimetry equipment (Griffith) and a state-of-the-art Medical Engineering Research Facility (MERF – QUT) for in-vivo evaluation of medical devices. As part of the Critical Care Research Group, the ICETLAB has access to a range of biological evaluation equipment to assess the interaction between cardiovascular devices and blood. This combination of mechanical and biological research facilities and close collaboration with the clinic makes the ICETLAB an ideal facility for medical engineering research.
