Registration for VPTN's 2015 Showcase has officially opened – join us to to meet and explore collaborative ways of delivering innovation outcomes for Victoria.
The MHTP Medical Genomics Facility established by the Hudson Institute, will soon be relocating to the $84 million, state-of-the-art Translational Research Facility at the Monash Health Translation Precinct.
Congratulations to CSIRO’s Facility Manger Chad Henry and Lab 22 for winning the coveted Melbourne Achiever Award by the Committee for Melbourne!
Dr Gerard Gibbs from The Victorian Platform Technologies Network (VPTN) will present at the Victorian Government briefing to open the AusMedTech conference in Melbourne on 29-30 April. Dr Gibbs will introduce the VPTN's reason-for-being and the breadth of resources in network to support the development of medical technologies.
The VPTN managers are often out presenting to various groups on the resources that are available through the network, like the recent presentation to the Victorian business advisers to the Entrepreneurs Infrastructure Program.
WEHI Centre for Dynamic Imaging provides precision imaging across a broad scale, from single cells and tissue slices to whole organisms using both fluorescence and bioluminescence modalities.
Expertise and instrumentation for flow cytometry analysis and cell sorting is available at MCRI
How VPTN facilities can help make your grant application the best it can be.
CSIRO further cemented its place in Australian industry after it was involved in a world leading collaboration to save a 71-year-old man’s leg.
Metabolomics is getting a name for being the new marker method in determining changes in metabolites in response to internal and external influences.
Using its liquid handling robots - MPPU can process up to 96 samples or 96 different conditions per protein when expressed in E.coli, within 24 – 48 hours.
The Biomechanics Laboratory at Victoria University researches how our gait and balance alter as we age and investigates the use of wearable interactive devices for sports skill development,
"...at least three facilities have a new connection with a company and are discussion how they might work together." This sort of connection is one of the key objectives of Discover. Connect. Grow.
Industry and institutional researchers now have unprecedented access to Victoria’s research infrastructure.
In the same way Hollywood forensic scientist characters use computer-generated images to help solve a crime or diagnose a condition, BioMation Biomedical Animation and Visualisation uses Hollywood special effects software to bring to life the mysteries of biomedicine.
From characterising engineered surface materials, biomaterials or crystals, to delivering particles to cells, to paint on the walls, the MCFP can lend expertise to your R&D.
More than 1800 people are now using ARIN for online booking and instrument usage reporting, and over 17,255 reservations have been made.
Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication is a hub of academic activity, where researchers in industry and academia across Victoria and Australia can collaborate on projects together.
CDCO shows how academic research can shine at working with pharmaceutical companies.
We often think it’s cheaper to do experiments in our own laboratory rather than using a core facility. But does our own lab have the latest and most efficient equipment? Do we think about the time and anguish to be saved by an experienced hand helping in designing the experiment – or in preparing samples for the best outcome? We spoke to Lavinia Gordon about how her Bioinformatics work at the AGRF can benefit the Australian research community.
Rapidly develop new products and also publish your research outcomes faster and more prolifically, using the Rapid Automated Materials & Processing centre (RAMP) at CSIRO
ARIN is a world leading research facility management software solution initiated by the Victorian Platform Technologies Network (VPTN). The software allows researchers to book instruments and services across its network and report on usage. To find out more go to http://arin.org.au/.
