Need a Deep Web Miner to retrieve hard-to-find life sciences research?
How about a cell therapy manufacturing system?
A self-coiling surgical tool?
Then Battelle might have the intellectual property for you.
The Columbus, Ohio-based research science and technology development institute has launched a searchable database of patents for these and 60 other security, energy technology and health and life sciences innovations, which you can have for a licensing fee. And more license-able patents are on the way.
Founded at the bequest of Gordon Battelle more than 80 years ago, the charitable trust operates on the founding principle of transferring technology through commercialization.
“The companies that contact Battelle to acquire breakthrough technologies are seeking a respected partner that’s in the business of research and development for the long haul,” president and CEO Jeff Wadsworth said in prepared remarks. “Intellectual property is one of our strengths and a major example of how Battelle helps companies it works with become more competitive and accelerate innovation.”
If you find some intellectual property you want to license, Battelle can help you use it.
“Battelle intellectual property also can be a springboard for new technologies, and we are well-suited to do more contract R&D for our partners to advance or optimize that application,” Spencer Pugh, the institute’s vice president and manager of Industrial and International Markets, said in the release.
Battelle does about $6.2 billion in global research and development a year through contract research, laboratory management and technology commercialization.
