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.

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...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
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...
At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).
Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
