The technology will aim to be translated for consumer use with the recent announcement of $6.3 million in funding granted to establish the first manufacturing facility for the device.


Funded by the Medical Products priority of the Australian Government’s Modern Manufacturing Initiative, a new biosensor factory will be established in the Hunter region for the upscale and manufacturing of glucose biosensors for people living with diabetes as well as other applications.


We caught up with University of Newcastle ANFF Materials Node Leader Paul Dastoor to find out more. Watch the full interview below.
