Biotics are very pleased to announce the approval of the ARC Research Hub grant totalling $3.7m. Preg Tech are one of the 5 industry partners involved in this grant.

ARC Research Hub for Integrated Device for End-user Analysis at Low-levels (IDEAL). This hub aims to improve detection of biological materials by building a portable device for rapid, time-critical detection of low-abundance molecular and cellular analytes. It is expected that the resulting technologies would be used at medical points of care, ordinary workplaces and centres of activity to test for tiny levels of targeted molecules. The initial focus would be 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. The hub expects these disruptive technologies will make Australian biotechnology, diagnostics, veterinary, agribusiness and manufacturing firms globally competitive.
