Science originally referred to knowledge of any kind. Today we view science as the systematic study of the physical and natural world, through observation and experiment.

At appScience, we use this knowledge and understanding to solve problems for industry and the global community. We believe that our solutions must be sustainable and have a positive impact on our environment.

appScience was founded by a scientist with over 30 years experience in science and mathematics, including both fundamental research into micro and nano-scale devices and applied research into sensor systems, including electronics and software engineering.

We provide consulting services to assist in the creation of new technologies, generally based on physics, electronics and computer science. We develop both hardware and software products tailored to customer needs. To assist us in solving problems we have developed software tools for analysing, modelling and displaying data. These tools have been adapted into software applications now available for everyone to use.

Examples of the work we do ...

Document security

We have worked with a leading company in document security to develop new optical effects for anti-counterfeiting of documents and banknotes. Using mathematical and geometric analysis we solved problems relating to the design of these complex optical effects and developed methods to allow the in-house production of the master printing tools.

Biosensing and microfluidics

Point-of-care diagnostics in medicine is becoming increasingly important particularly with the advantages of personalised medicine. appScience has worked with a biosensor engineering company to identify limitations with current diagnostic techniques based on lateral flow devices. We identified the sources of these limitations and developed methods for improving their sensitivity and reliability based on microfluidics.

Scientific research

At appScience we continue working with universities in Australia and Europe providing valuable research assistance in mathematical modelling, numerical simulation and experiments. We have many years experience in micro and nanofabrication techniques including electron beam lithography. Our work and expertise has contributed to many publications in high profile scientific journals.
