Sensor/Diagnostic Technologies Available for Licensing

These are some of the technologies available from The University of Auckland through UniServices. 

Remember with UniServices if you pay for it, you own it, the IP will be assigned to you. 

Smart functionalised membranes that enable the removal of dilute pollutants, especially compounds of emerging concern through a catalytic oxidation process without contamination of the bulk water by excess oxidant or catalyst.

An all-fiber spectroscopic fluorescence system to easily and rapidly measure accurate bacteria total count on-site.

Dynamic Demand Local Control is a patented decentralised load management and grid support system designed to be inherently stable under a wide range of grid conditions.

Combining the technology’s novel image processing and head stabilisation algorithms with a visual stimulus display system; we are able to rapidly and objectively assess visual function in young children.

With a 448 channel base unit, UnEmap delivers unique high spatial resolution electrical mapping. The system is endlessly expandable to accommodate any desired number of electrodes, and is the only technology to enable recording from, or pacing down, electrodes individually.

Current Technologies in Development

Find descriptions of current Sensor/Diagnostic projects below. Please contact our Commercialisation Managers for any license, partner or commercial enquiries by clicking the project name.


An all-fibre spectroscopic fluorescence bacterial detection system that requires minimal manual intervention, and can give accurate results on site within 30 minutes. Results can show a quantification of bacterial load among other things.

Mass Spectrometer- Portable dynamic time-of-flight    

A novel time-of-flight mass spectrometer based on UniServices patented technology which promises differentiating performance for analysis of high masses, particularly suited for the growing field of proteomics.

Pelvic Floor Pressure sensor

Development of a new vaginal pressure sensor which will allow concurrent measurement of abdominal and pelvic floor muscle activity. It will also enable measurement of where the pressure changes occur along the length of the vagina which will add to our understanding of how this change might influence the development of pelvic floor muscle disorders such as incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.

Development of an Open Source Laser Doppler Vibrometer (Laser Vibrometer)

Utilising laser power to determine the properties of materials such as the ripeness of fruit or the quality of timber no destructively, in-line and in real time.
