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: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
