A Method for Extraction of Nucleic Acids from Lignified Plant Tissue
There is currently a huge interest in verifying the source and legality of timber as several new legislations make it a criminal offence to mis-declare origin of timber or trade in restricted species (Lacey in US, EUTR in EU and new legislation in Australia from 30 November 2014). DNA methods are currently the robust method to verify timber origin ...

Commercialisation of algorithms that predict risk for pregnancy complications
Non-Invasive Diagnostic Test for Prediction of Pregnancy Complications Overview: Researchers at the University of Adelaide have identified a suite of genetic markers associated with increased risk of pregnancy complications. On average 25% of first time pregnancies in Australia are affected by one or more of four major complications: preeclampsia, ...

Annexin A2 as a novel diagnostic marker for serous ovarian cancer
Technology Background: We have recently shown that annexin A2 is highly expressed in 90% of serous ovarian cancers, which is the most common subtype and is actively involved in the process of ovarian cancer metastasis. Moreover, we have also shown that local upregulation of annexin A2 within the tumour is reflected in a systemic ~2.0-fold increase...

Gastric Cancer Detection Test
Gastric cancer (GC) is the fourth most common cancer in the world and the second leading cause of cancer-related death. In Australia, the age standardised incident rate (ASR) is 9-10 per 100,000 people and over 11,000 deaths were recorded between 1996 and 2006. The current diagnostic strategy for GC is inadequate. The ability to detect early stage...
