Our mission

The IDEAL Research Hub’s mission 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 small quantities of materials that may be early signals of disease, signs of drugs, or evidence of food or environmental toxins.

The Hub will achieve this by creating an innovative suite of integrated technologies to vastly improve the sensitivity, selectivity, speed and cost-effectiveness of detecting biological and chemical molecules at low levels.

These point-of-care diagnostic and testing technologies designed for use at the clinic, on the production line or in the field will help enhance human, animal and environmental health.

It is expected these technologies will also make Australian firms more globally competitive in creating new markets not only in the platform technology itself, but also through high value products and services based on the platform.
