The Cybertongue® Company

PPB Technology Pty Ltd’s CYBERTONGUE® Wins Category at the Victorian Premier’s Design Awards Ceremony

On Wednesday March 13th, PPB Technology Pty Ltd’s #CYBERTONGUE Food Testing System won the 2023 Victorian Premier’s Award for Product Design. It was a tremendous honour to have our system selected from a pool of 30 amazing finalists.

It has been such a rewarding journey developing the CYBERTONGUE from invention to product in collaboration with our design and engineering partners Tricycle Developments and Xentronics. We are proud to add this award to our collection; rounding out the trifecta following our 2023 Best in Class, Medical and Scientific Equipment at the Good Design Australia’s national award ceremony and Best in our Class, Technology Platform category, in the ACT Division of the AIIA Awards.

We want to thank all the individuals who have contributed to the creation of this technology over the last decade, including the consummate professionals at Advanced Molecular Technologies and AsureQuality Diagnostics.

Our Founder, Stephen Trowell, who attended the award ceremony and accepted the award on the night, said “I can’t deny that it was an emotional and affirming experience to win this major award from a truly distinguished field of finalists. My spine was tingling.”

But, in the end, if we weren’t also meeting our customer’s needs it would be pointless. Which is why, by the end of the next day, another CYBERTONGUE® System was successfully installed and measuring bacterial protease in raw milk at a customer’s site.
