A fictional television drama series about a mobile scientific laboratory operated by the Delta group, an independent, non-profit research organisation loosely based on the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). As 'scientific trouble-shooters,' the Delta team make their expertise available to individuals, groups, and industry, community, or government bodies anywhere in Australia, using the latest scientific instruments to tackle whatever problems are brought to them. The mobile labs are backed up by scientists and research workers in many fields. Over the course of the series, the Delta group tackles a wide range of issues from industrial espionage to disease and bushfires.
