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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
