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.

Natural products are perceived to be too difficult to use in the ultra-high throughput screening approach preferred by pharmaceutical companies. We have developed a method which allows high throughput screening of anticancer agents directly on cells from samples of ovarian tumours from patients...
Cancer is one of the biggest killers world wide and its prevalence is set to increase due to aging population and changes in lifestyle. The major problem for the successful treatment of cancer, is the development of chemotherapeutic resistance by the cancer cells which results in metastasis of the c...
This quick and simple method for the culture of rat embryonic stem (ES) cells does not rely on the use of feeder cells, making it more cost effective, and easier to use for ES cell manipulation (in vitro) and generation of transgenic rats and knockouts.
The Thermoelectric Sensor technology is a Nano-Calorimetric Sensor which measures very small changes in temperature. The IP provides a route to making the most sensitive calorimetric measurements (with a resolution of 0.1 mK).
Available as an Easy Access IP royalty free license this simple detector for illegal drugs (Cocaine, Heroin etc.), can be used to detect low concentrations of narcotics present in saliva giving a simple "Yes/No" outcome.
Proof of Concept demonstrated using Fluorescence, the team now seeks commerc...
Hydrogels can provide an environment for stem cells to replicate, survive and turn into neurons for screening of potential therapies.
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...
Nanoprobe technology can be used for the detection and analysis of mRNA at the single cell level, with application in the early detection, prognosis and prediction of lung cancer.
We have developed software which identifies druggable allosteric sites unique to bacterial and protozoal ribosomes for the development of new antibiotic drugs.
Chemical synthesis of chiral intermediates presents a range of challenges, some of which can be overcome using enantiospecific enzymes.
