Modular Photonics, a spin out from Macquarie University, is a young, B2B company manufacturing glass-microchip devices that increase data transmission rates and reach in legacy public and enterprise multimode fibre networks. Our award winning plug-and-play products install in one hour, enabling 1 to 40G data rates at less than 75% of the cost to re-cable to single mode fibre.
The underlying technology base was originally developed at Macquarie University to solve the very real problem of integrating object-based learning into online education. Pedestal 3D now operates as a wholly independent entity after successfully spinning out from Macquarie University with assistance from the Office of Commercialisation and Innovation.
Spectrum Academic Mentoring (SAM) is an evidence-based approach to mentoring that empowers mentees to choose their mentors and the type of mentoring relationship, whether it is one-on-one or group. Working in partnership or as a group, mentees set the goals, timeframes and parameters for how the relationship will work.
Our mentoring guide identifies key skills for mentees and mentors and provides an easy step-by-step process for both mentees and mentors, including checklists and reflection exercises.
Developed by experts and delivered by experienced teachers, the program is aligned with the NSW Science and Technology Syllabus and the Early Years Learning Framework. Classes are relevant and age-appropriate, including smaller classes for younger children, and more challenging content for older ones.
Established in 2001 as a spin-off from Macquarie University, MicroBioGen is a world-leading biotechnology company with global success in the development of industrial yeast biocatalysts. MicroBioGen has developed a platform technology that enables us to upgrade the industrial capabilities of the world’s most utilised microorganism – Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This yeast underpins over US$1 trillion in products per year including biofuels, bread, wine, spirits, animal feed, biochemicals etc.
MicroBioGen is successfully partnered with the international biotech company Novozymes, and our yeast products - used for the Novozymes Innova series - are quickly becoming the global industry standard to produce a range of first-generation biofuels.
The Australian Federal Government awarded MicroBioGen with a $4 million grant through the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) to optimise a yeast for food and fuel production. MicroBioGen has won numerous awards, such as a Macquarie University Award for Commercial Innovation and an Australian Export Award.
