Certain types of university intellectual property can sometimes prove difficult to commercialise through traditional routes, usually because it is at an early stage of development, or because it presents enough uncertainty for companies to risk an investment.
University Technology’s Easy Access portal offers access to this type of intellectual property at no cost, to enable companies to evaluate it and put it to use quickly, with reduced risk.
Easy Access uses quick and simple licence agreements to fast-track the transfer of knowledge and expertise from Scotland’s universities to industry, so that these technologies may be developed for the benefit of the economy and society.
Through this initiative, our aim is to make it easier for Scottish universities and industry to work together and build strong, long-term relationships with industry partners.

A host-directed diagnostic methodology, which uses only 30 μL of whole blood, and enables rapid and accurate detection of sepsis in neonates and other subjects. The test removes false negative results associated with current gold standard microbiological methods.
This range of novel synthetic polymers control bacterial attachment, resulting in specific sequestration or repulsion of bacteria such as Salmonella and E. coli.
These fully synthetic biocompatible polymers support effective human endothelial cell growth and endothelialisation, whilst minimising platelet attachment. The polymer materials can be applied as a thin coating to intra‐vascular devices and have the potential to minimise problems associated with vas...
This new approach converts chemotherapy agents into prodrugs, significantly reducing systemic toxicity, and enabling local activation only at tumour sites where a specific catalyst, palladium, has been implanted.
Implementation of a Raman spectral decomposition technique that allows effective identification of complex mixtures. The computationally and memory efficient software enables new functionality to be added to portable hand-held devices.
This sensitive, rapid and highly accurate assay offers a less invasive mechanism for initial diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. This would facilitate early intervention and implementation of an appropriate care package.
The invention addresses the important issue of uniformity of illumination in street lighting. It is a novel, non-imaging optic which can be combined with LEDs to produce illumination uniformity and footprints of various and defined diameters and shapes. This cannot be achieved by conventional opti...
A novel building energy management system has been developed for managing energy usage; heating, cooling, lighting etc. The system is based on a wireless sensor architecture and advanced artificial intelligence network. The system is able to optimise environmental controls based on remote, real-tim...
Transformers play a key role in the transmission and distribution network, getting power from source to end-user, so any fault is critical and needs to be identified before any damage to the transformer or surrounding components leads to power black-out or catastrophic failure.
Antibiotics are often prescribed inappropriately leading to (1) patients remaining infected and failing to recover from bacterial infection, and (2) the spread of bacterial antibiotic resistance. Our laboratory prototype devices can provide accurate detection and quantification of bacterial suscepti...
