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.

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...
Printing plastic electronics from solution promises to revolutionise the manufacture of luminaires and the production of high-efficiency light sources. We have designed deep-blue emitting cationic iridium complexes that are unprecedently bright to complement currently available red and green emitter...
Researchers at the University of Dundee have succeeded in incorporating an optically enabled device within a needlesized probe to optimise prostate cancer diagnosis.
A method of accurately determining the exact position of the end of the fibre of an endoscope during a procedure, by optically imaging through the body. This gives precise knowledge of the location of observed tissue abnormalities, and the ability to effectively sample multiple regions of an organ.
Combining the sequential use of 2 enzymes – fluorinase and nucleoside hydrolase – we have successfully produced a new radiotracer with potential as an imaging biomarker for PET scans. The fluorinase enzyme combines fluorine with S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM) to generate 5'-fluro-5'-deoxy...
Catanostics (Cataract Diagnostics) offers an alternative to the slit lamp currently used for cataract diagnosis before referring a patient for cataract surgery.
Our non-invasive fluorescence scan offers "better diagnosis" through non-subjective analysis of data on cataract symptoms & severity lea...
Using a modified LIDAR approach, we offer a simplistic imaging system that enables the viewing or tracking of objects with a single photon camera such as vehicles or people that may be hidden from sight of an observer (e.g. hiding round corners etc).
A method of using multiple low Resolution images to restore multi-colour super resolution images that are far beyond the diffraction limit
A tetrazine small-molecule trigger for activating prodrugs has been developed. Active molecules, such as a therapeutic drug or imaging fluorophore, can be caged within a polymer nanoparticle for controlled release at a targeted site.
Researchers at the University of Glasgow have developed a novel, low-cost hybrid imaging technique, 3D Micro Snapshot, which permits 3D images to be captured in a single snapshot and with extended depth-of-field (DOF).
