Tech Access

About this programme

Through A*STAR’s Tech Access programme, gain consultancy, user training and technical advice on research equipment that you can experiment with before making your own investment.

  • Get funding support
  • Tap a wealth of resources
    Get equipped with the right tools, training and guidance to build new technological capabilities.
  • Support for product development costs
    Prototype and test new products, new applications, and experiment with technologies without having to purchase equipment up front.

Areas of expertise

  • Additive manufacturing
    Enable production of precision components, tools, and prototypes. Engage in repair and restoration, increase wear and corrosion resistance, and improve electrical conductivity.
  • Robotics
    Improve efficiency of manufacturing processes via automation of heavier-weight collaborative processes such as packaging, palletising, assembly and pick and place. Robotics can also allow fully automated 3D scanning for inspection purposes.
  • Inspection tools
    Identify defects using high-precision measurement on machined parts or coatings to optimise high surface quality components in the manufacturing industry.
  • Semiconductor-processing
    Access semiconductor processing equipment for bonding, diffusion, electroplating, etching, lithography, thin film and wet tools.
  • Biotech and biomedical scientific services & equipment
    Access the following services and equipment: microscopy, customised adeno-associated viruses (AAVs), mass spectrometry, immunomonitoring, histology, antibody & product development, and pharmacokinetics.


  • Business entity registered or incorporated in Singapore
  • Company has at least 30% local equity held directly or indirectly by Singaporean(s) and/or Singapore PR(s), determined by the ultimate individual ownership
  • Core business activities are carried out in Singapore
