UniSA’s improved cancer detection technology a magnet for commercialisation

Researchers at the University of South Australia’s Future Industries Institute will join forces with New Zealand based nanoparticle specialist Boutiq Science and major IP investor, Powerhouse Ventures to develop an improved system for cancer detection that relies on magnetic rather than radioactive tracers.

While traditional radioactive tracers have been a mainstay for detecting the spread of both breast cancer and melanoma in lymph nodes, they have proved less effective in other cancers such as head and neck, gastrointestinal and oesophageal cancers, where nodes are closely packed or clustered.
