Superior Nanofiber Substrates for Long-Term Culturing of Primary Neurons
Chemically uniform, reproducible short peptides that support growth and maturation of 2D and 3D neuronal cultures and
development of electrically active neuronal networks.
Superior, site-specific and controlled IgM conjugation methods
A novel methodology for site-specific conjugation of IgMs to small molecules, MRI/PET tracers or fluorescent probes, while maintaining recognition of antigen targets and not compromising structural antibody integrity.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: Novel strategy to clear pathologic TDP-43 aggregates
Dementia Research Centre: Alzheimer’s Disease Portfolio
Quantitative tool to predict outcomes of cerebrovascular disease
Brain Donut: Novel device for dynamic brain retraction
A retractor for use in brain surgery.
Endoscopic probe for multi-channel upper airway diagnostics
Innovative design that enables simultaneous and longitudinal airway imaging.
Real-time luminescence lifetime imaging method
A new methodology together with practical instrumentation to enable lifetime-multiplexed optical imaging of molecular dynamics of biological systems in real time.
High brightness pulsed Raman laser
Using diamond Raman technology, a pump beam can be efficiently converted to a longer wavelength output beam using 1, 2 or more Stokes shifts of the Raman medium. For example, a 1.06 μm laser pump beam can be efficiently converted to a 1.5 μm output beam.
Actively controlled and fully integrated short-pulsed chip lasers
A combination of Zedelef's patented transducer technology with MQ's patented waveguide chip-laser architecture.
Ultra-high power diamond lasers and beam combiners
Using diamond to combine power from multiple beams into a pure high-quality output laser mode.
High average power continuous-wave laser
High thermal conductivity Raman materials such as diamond can be used to mitigate thermal lensing enabling operation over a very wide power range without compromising output beam quality.
Cytokine Test Strip
This technology is able to be integrated to an in Vivo device for monitoring localised cytokine in body fluids.
Diamond-based High Energy Laser (HEL) tech
Macquarie’s diamond-based High Energy Laser (HEL) tech runs at an eye safer 1.24 µm, with unprecedented ultra-high power potential of 100’s of kW to MWs. This technology is transformative as beam-conversion in diamond can substantially raise the power barrier.
Continuous-wave yellow Raman laser
Design of continuous-wave Raman lasers, particularly yellow.
Stable solid state Raman laser
Q-switched (pulsed) crystalline Raman laser. Also applicable to continuous wave (CW) operation.
A selectable multiwavelength laser for outputting visible light
Generation of wavelength-selectable visible output from a single laser.
Multi-Channel Optical Coherence Tomography (MC-OCT) device
A novel surface diagnostic probe.
Corrosion resistivity enhancement on electrodes
A universal coating technique that can easily be adapted to any metallic elements prone to corrosion.
High-resolution detection of direction of arrival of a transmitting source
Determination of the angle of arrival of a radio signal by the signal complex voltages obtained at the outputs of antenna elements configured in a circular array and unique signal processing of these signals.
Improved heat tolerance in plants for enhanced crop yields under heat stress
A novel variant of RCA conferring greater photosynthetic performance at elevated temperatures, and enabling crops to be more productive in hotter regimes.
Capture of gaseous mercury
A simple and economical method to directly capture Gaseous elemental mercury (GEM) with a filter constructed of a coconut fibre substrate.
Remediation of mercury
An immobilizing technique using a biopolymer to encapsulate cells harbouring the mer operon for coating on natural zeolites.
Systems and methods for obtaining auditory evoked potentials
The objective of this innovation is to improve the recording of Auditory Brainstem Responses (ABRs) evoked by neurons located at apical portions of the cochlea (sensitive to low-frequency sounds) by inducing a resonance in the Basilar Membrane (BM) displacement with short-duration stimuli presented at fast rates. This method improves detection of neural responses to low-frequency sounds, provides a more accurate hearing assessment, and allows the study of interaural timing cues.
Business and Economics
Literature comparison methodology
A tool that helps identify relevant research gaps and unmet needs of different stakeholder groups. It identifies salient topics discussed in the practitioner literature that are not covered in academic literature and vice versa.
