Industry partnerships

The IDEAL Research Hub’s goal is to advance industry’s ability to develop portable, user-friendly analytical devices that can be used at the clinic, on the production line or in the field to test for tiny quantities of materials that may be early signals of disease, signs of drugs or evidence of food or environmental toxins.

In addition to making scientific discoveries that impact on our knowledge and understanding, the IDEAL Research Hub aims to translate our discoveries into tangible outcomes for society at large by enabling industry partners to commercialise our discoveries into products and services.

Find out about our current industry partners and partner investigators.

Partnering with the IDEAL Research Hub gives you access to world-class fabrication facilities and a multidisciplinary team with leading expertise in materials science, biophotonics, microfluidics, molecular bioscience, nanotechnology and device engineering.

We welcome enquiries from organisations interested in partnering with us to transform and grow the point-of-care diagnostics industry in Australia.

Our partnership opportunities can take many forms and include contract research.
