Summary: By transforming Australian advances in biomolecular science, nanotechnology and device engineering into highvalue products, the Hub aims to radically improve sensitivity, selectivity, speed and cost for detection of biological materials. The mission is to build a portable device for rapid, time-critical detection of low abundance molecular and cellular analytes. The resulting technologies will be designed for use on the production line, at the clinic, bedside, roadside and transport points to identify tiny levels of targeted molecules. The initial focus is early diagnosis of disease and point-of-care drug testing for humans and animals, but the technology platform could be used to sample food and environmental toxins, for example. IMPACT STATEMENT: This ARC Research Hub will overcome complex challenges to pave the way for new Australian technologies that can be used at medical points of care, ordinary workplaces and centres of activity, to test for tiny quantities of materials that are early signals of disease or signs of drug, animal health, food quality or environmental issues. These disruptive technologies will give Australian biotechnology, diagnostics, veterinary, agribusiness and manufacturing firms global competitive advantages.
