Project Description

This applicatiuon is for CSIRO's ON Prime program. ON Prime is an entry level, part-time pre-accelerator that helps research teams validate their research and discover a real world application for it. It provides an opportunity to test paths for IP, know-how or tech through a process of customer discovery and market validation, and help unlock the entrepreneurial nous required to take the work to the next level.

Summary of our idea:
While late detection of cancers is responsible for extensive mortality, if detected early, a number of cancers can be cured or managed to significantly improve the length and quality of life. There is currently no test available which can screen for multiple cancer sub-types in a single assay, and no comprehensive screening program for early cancer detection currently exists in the Australian (or any) healthcare system. Our $100 Diagnome Cancer Screening Test can quantitatively identify biomarkers of over 20 cancer sub-types in a single assay, giving patients an opportunity to be treated early, resulting in better prognosis and improved survival.
