Company profile

Microsurfaces is a startup company based in Melbourne, Australia, that manufactures a range of novel microstructured surfaces which enable live cell imaging over long periods of time for high content imaging, tracking and screening applications.

The microcell arrays have been developed through a collaborative approach between physicists, biologists, microscopists and bio-interface chemists.

In addition to the standard product lines we look to engaged with researchers to help them develop the tools that they require to excel in their field through the ability to quickly develop new and novel custom microstructured surfaces that may be specific to their applications.

Management team

Dr Daniel Day

Founder and Managing Director

Daniel has over 15 years experience in microscopy and micro/nano structures and device fabrication. He received his PhD in Physics at Swinburne University of Technology in 2001, specialising in multi-photon microscopy and femtosecond laser microfabrication and completed a GradCert of Entrepreneuship and Innovation at Swinburne University in 2004.

Daniel's research at Swinburne University of Technology has led to the creation of three University start-up companies 3DCD Technology, Biosurfaces and Microsurfaces in 2002, 2010 and 2011. He has significant experience in multi-discipline platform technology development from concept to commercial product in biotech, microscopy and data storage markets.
