Leading Scientists To Provide Technical Due Diligence Service To Investors

01.09.2005


A new venture, Bio Life Technical, including leading researchers within Nanotechnology and Personalized Healthcare, such as Professor Chris Toumazou and Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub of Imperial College, London, is being launched in London, UK providing independent due diligence services to investors, globally. Bio Life Technical is structured to aid venture capital groups, investment banks, business angels and institutional investors by providing a single contact point and managing the technical due diligence reporting process on behalf of prospective investor clients. This will save time, resources and, therefore, money for the investment community. Professor Chris Toumazou said, “Medical Device technology is truly interdisciplinary. Bio Life Technical’s strategy of providing technical due diligence by expert professors from core disciplines and world class experts working with interdisciplinary institutes, such as Imperial College’s Institute of Biomedical Engineering, will enable a more thorough scientific evaluation of the technology”.



In addition, Bio Life Technical can estimate a quantitative commercial value for a device, even though it is at a pre-development stage without the usual financial inputs to rely on. Aiden Williamson, a partner in Bio Life Technical said “The Bio Life Technical service is a welcome development in the field of technical due diligence that will give investors a clear edge when it comes to the evaluation of investment opportunities”.

By specializing in Nanotechnology and Personalized Healthcare, Bio Life Technical is concentrating upon areas of high contemporary and future importance to the investment and financial community, industry, not to mention scientific and healthcare organisations. Each of the technologies could cause revolutionary and, in some cases, disruptive change in the status quo and growth prospects of most technology dependent business sectors. For this reason, Bio Life Technical retains a cross-disciplinary approach, ensuring a truly comprehensive reporting structure.


The value-added element of the Bio Life Technical offering is technical analysis that cannot normally be undertaken by venture capital firms, early stage investors, investment banks and market research agencies without access to a multi-disciplinary network of scientific experts with the ability to provide high-level analysis of technology prospects.

Technical due diligence and new medical technologies bring together a variety of scientific disciplines and will often necessitate a ‘cross-examination’ by different experts. Bio Life Technical is able to provide this service as it draws advisors from internationally renowned institutions such as Imperial College London, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Glasgow University and Oxford University while covering a vast range of disciplines. Bio Life Technical is focused on areas where it is challenging to quickly and conveniently access high-end expertise in interdisciplinary technical analysis and quantitative evaluation of new technologies.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
