Planning to commercialize your biomarker invention?

This website offers a set of free biomarker commercialization tools to help researchers, small and medium sized companies (SMEs), and technology transfer offices (TTOs) tackle the highly regulated and interdisciplinary landscape of in-vitro diagnostics applicable biomarkers, i.e., markers intended to provide information on the health status of a person.

The tools guide researchers and product developers through the technology readiness levels (TRL) and remind about the technical, regulatory, and business aspects of the innovation process.

What are TRLs?

The Technology Readiness Level (TRL) scale is the most widely used tool for maturity assessment. It allows a consistent comparison of maturity between different types of technologies.

The TRL concept was originally developed by the NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration to support the development of space technologies and allow for more effective assessment of and better communication on the maturity of new technologies.

What tools are included in the Biomarker Commercialization Toolset?

  • The BIC Biomarker Commercialization Guide provides guidance throughout the biomarker development process from the discovery to the launch of the product. It is a tool to monitor the progress of the biomarker development process actively.
  • The BIC Best Practice Handbook offers hints and tips on e.g., commercialization aspects, intellectual property rights, business models and legal viewpoints for different phases of biomarker discovery and development.
  • The BIC ReviewTool is a tool for choosing the most innovative/ commercializable biomarker projects. It is a fill-in form for following the progress of a project.
  • The BIC Regulatory Tools were created to extend, organize, and systematize knowledge around regulatory affairs. They aim to support stakeholders who participate in the process of placing IVD biomarker products on the market. The toolset includes a BIC IVD Regulatory Guide and a BIC IVD Regulatory Roadmap.
