Leading Scientists To Provide Technical Due Diligence Service To Investors


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: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
