Commercialisation - Sectors
Our molecular sensing tools have enormous clinical translation potential and will form the basis of the diagnostic devices of the future.
Our deployable biodevices also have direct commercial application across veterinary, animal care, agriculture, manufacturing and food production sectors.
At the CNBP we actively look to develop strong partnerships—building engaged relationships with our industry partners to deliver exciting translational and commercial outcomes.
Our innovative technology and research is driving the development of next-generation molecular sensing tools—in the longer term to create clinical point-of-care diagnostic devices. Here we work closely with clinicians and end-users, focused on the needs of both the specialist and the patient.
Reproductive Success, Vascular Health, and Persistent Pain—these are our core research program areas—where our Discovery, Sensing and Imaging activity looks to provide new and illuminating answers on the molecular machinery of life.
Already our scientists are seeing their research transition through the commercialisation process with innovative new tools and techniques that include -
- A 'smart needle' that can sense at-risk blood vessels during biopsies
- A new fibre optic sensor to aid embryo monitoring during IVF
- A sensor that can aid in cancer surgery &
- Advanced cell identification and selection technology supporting next-generation cellular therapy
In using the power of light to measure we are taking our technologies to the body and successfully understanding real-time molecular processes impacting health, disease and the well-being of the individual. The effective and efficient adotion of these research outcomes into commercial products and services with our partners is one of our key drivers and measures of success.
Notably, we are also building on the disruptive science developed across our current research programs—to modify existing tools, and to build brand new tools for animal healthcare, and to improve quality, quantity and sustainability across agricultural and food production supply chains.
From sensors monitoring food quality, food-borne pathogens or contaminants, to novel tools to aid in the manufacturing and quality control process, our measuring
technology has the potential to add significantly to many organisations and to their bottom line.
We are already working with a number of businesses in this space and to date we are the only major research centre in Australia building these high-tech light-based sensors—able to monitor food quality and packaging, and able to provide reagent–free measurements across the manufacturing process.
