Biomarker Commercialization - webinar recording now available online

BIC final webinar recording now available online!


In this final webinar Valerie Daussin Laurent, the project leader of the BIC consortium, introduces the viewer to the BIC tools, in particular the BIC Guide, which is a web-based tool that supports academic researchers and SMEs when developing an in-vitro diagnostic biomarker invention to a commercial product.

The BIC Consortium is proud to present the results of the BIC project, a set of support tools for researchers, technology transfer offices and SMEs for a better and more successful commercialisation of biomarkers inventions. BIC tools conduct and guide the user through the discovery and innovative process, integrating not only technical and clinical task but also commercial and regulatory considerations.
