Wisdom - Based Thailand

International Standard

Human resource Development

  • Sustainable Energy

  • Standardize Thailand

  • BIO R&D

  • High Quality HR

Slide3 l.jpg

Weoffer 2 Types of invitation projects

Type1.Invitation to government procurement

Type2.Invitation to investment in Thailand

Project 1

Testing and Calibration Laboratory

International Standard

Slide5 l.jpg

National Testing and Calibration Laboratoryin Thailand

Existing Conditions

  • Not enough the capableTesting/Calibration Laboratories to support the target industries of the country (i.e., food industry, healthcare industry, etc.)

  • To support the industries to deal with the non-tariff barriers such as a Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) and Free Trade Area (FTA) arrangements.

  • Must hesitate to metrology system in Thailand to meet international standard.

Slide6 l.jpg

Our objectives

To establish the internationally recognized testing/calibration laboratory

Thai product/ services

are internationally accepted and be able

to compete in the worldmarket

Thailand will be

the hub of Testing,

Calibration & Proficiency Testing


To create body of knowledge

and organize the proficiency

testing programs

Slide7 l.jpg

Scope of the Project

  • To establish the Testing/Calibration Laboratory in the areas which are needed, but not available in the country.

  • To establish the laboratory to produce the Certified Reference Materials (CRMs), which are required in the testing/calibration activities.

  • To organize the Proficiency Testing (PT) programs for other testing laboratories to make them international acceptable.

What we need l.jpg
Whatwe need?

  • To extendtesting laboratories and providing services of testing and calibration in Thailand and in this region

  • To leverage capability in providing certificate and reference material (CRM).

  • To strengthenthe NationalInstitute of Metrology Thailand in organizing the Proficiency Testing (PT) Programs to be internationally.

Current Prominent Food Issues

  • Allergens

  • Genetically-Engineer food (GMOs)

  • Mycotoxins and Phytotoxin

  • Hormones and Drug Residues i.e., Dioxin,

  • Nitrofuran,Chloramphenicol

  • Contaminants i.e.,Methyl mercury, PAHs,PCBs,

  • Pesticides, PBDEs,Perfluorinated Compounds

  • Food Safety /Security

Slide10 l.jpg

  • We will emphasize on:

  • Biological Testing and Calibration

  • ChemicalTesting and Calibration

  • Physical Testing and Calibration

Slide11 l.jpg

CRMs Production for Health and Food

  • Reference methods and CRMs for Clinical markers

    • Cholesterol

    • Blood sugar level, etc.

  • Methods and CRMs for dietary supplement safety

  • Methods and CRMs for additives and contaminants in foods

  • Nutritional composition CRMs

  • Environmental contamination CRMs

    BioWorld Edutainment Centre(Rangsit Ecology Centre)


    Ministry of Science and Technology

    Slide14 l.jpg

    BioWorld Edutainment Centre(Rangsit Ecology Centre)


    To build the BioWorld Edutainment Center at the National Science Museum, Rungsit, Prathumthani, as a new learning center, in the area of approx. 200 m by 250 m, or 50,000m₂ (42 Rai)

    Slide15 l.jpg


    • Environmental issue becomes one of the most important factors in

    • the development of the nation.

    • Global warming is a good example of how today action can affect

    • the environment in the future.

    • The delicate balance fashioned by Nature over billions of years was

    • jeopardized by rampant human activities, often heedless of the

    • damage done to the natural environment.

    • To increase public awareness of the environmental issues today,

    • therefore, is a very important mission and it needs immediate action.

    • BioWorld Edutainment Centre is aimed to be a learning centre for the public focusing on making visitors more aware of the complexity and vulnerability of nature and encourage them to do their best to help preserve the natural resource and sustain the balance of ecosystems

    Slide16 l.jpg

    Concept and Principle

    • Educational and cultural

    • Make visitors and especially young people, aware of the

    • complexity and vulnerability of the nature.

    • Disseminate knowledge in the fields of biology and

    • ecology.

    • Allow the exploration of links between culture and nature

    • Make visitors aware of environmental issues.

    • Explain to visitors what concrete day-to-day steps they

    • can take as individuals and groups to preserve our

    • planet’s heritage (“Think globally, act locally”).

    Slide17 l.jpg

    Concept and Principle

    Communications objectives (approaches and means)

    • Reach the “general public” target clienteles: adults,

    • children, seniors, families, school groups, tourist

    • groups, etc.

    • Through a variety of approaches and means, offer

    • visitors a fascinating experience during which they

    • will learn and make discoveries.

    Slide18 l.jpg

    Concept and Principle

    Scientific objectives (knowledge)

    • Add to biological and ecological knowledge by maintaining and studying collections of living plants and animals.

    • Share this knowledge with specialized networks

    • Take part in joint project with an environmental focus

    Slide19 l.jpg

    Concept and Principle

    Message : Sharing our Planet

    • In order to convey this message, 3 ecosystems have been selected as sub-themes to be presented in this centre comprising

    • North American and Temperate Zone Ecology

    • Asian and Tropical Zone Ecology

    • Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic Ecology

    Slide20 l.jpg

    Content and Message of each ecosystem

    Communicated from four different perspectives:

    -Biological aspects, introducing visitors to the lives of the plants

    and animals around them.

    -Ecological relationships, helping visitors to understand the

    concepts they will need if they are to examine their own habits, i.e.

    the dynamics of an ecosystem, systemic links, etc.

    -Environmental issues, particularly the impact of human activities

    on nature.

    -Cultural dimensions, exploring the relationships between people

    and their natural surroundings, in the past and present.

    Slide21 l.jpg

    Target clienteles

    • Adults

    • children

    • seniors

    • families

    • school groups

    • tourist groups, etc.

    Slide22 l.jpg

    Expected visitors number:

    not less than 1 million/year

    Project Development period:

    not more than 3 years

    Slide23 l.jpg

    Description of the project:

    This project is sited on the east side of the Science Museum on the bank of the nearby water reservoir (Phra Ram 9 water reservoir), The open view of the reservoir suggests diverse and rich conceptual possibilities of a thematic nature, as well as an attractive site and sensitive planning strategies.

    The site is approximately 200 m by 250 m, 50,000 m2
