Examples of Projects


CDT is developing a biosensor system[1]comprising off-the-shelf elements (LEDs and PDs) together with a 2-colour detection algorithm developed in-house. The resulting lateral flow biosensor is suitable for highly sensitive, portable applications. IP on this technology is available for licensing.

Fluorescent tags

We have developed a fluorescent reporter tag technology incorporating our fluorescent light emitting polymer technology into nanoparticles. These nanoparticles are extremely bright and have tuneable absorption and emission properties. We have developed surface modification technology that enables efficient attachment of biomolecules (antibodies, DNA, etc) creating opportunities for faster and more sensitive reagents in multiple bio analysis and sensing applications. We are currently assessing commercialisation options including licensing.

If you are interested in working with us in any capacity, we'd love to hear from you!
