Resumen:
Una pyme británica ha desarrollado un ensayo óptico para comprobar la calidad de hígados donados. El ensayo ha sido probado en campo y ha demostrado que es equivalente a la opinión del cirujano experto. El ensayo, basado en el uso de una cámara, teléfono o tableta estándar, puede llevarse a cabo por personal poco cualificado. La empresa busca socios con experiencia en software médico y sector sanitario o inversores con el fin de establecer acuerdos de financiación o cooperación técnica. También busca proveedores de asistencia sanitaria interesados en probar la tecnología.

Liver transplant viability optical assay for donated organs
Summary:
A UK SME has developed an optical assay to quickly test the quality of donated liver organs. The assay has been field tested and shown to correlate with experienced surgeon opinion. The company is looking for commercialisation partners for financial or technical cooperation agreements.
Description:
There is a shortage of good quality transplantable donor livers. Assessing the quality of an organ for transplantation in a timely and accurate manner is essential to improve the successful outcomes for patients. This is currently done using indirect ´donor criteria´ (e.g. donor age and BMI) and visual assessment by expert surgeons. This introduces the potential for delays and the possibility of marginally good organs being discarded. The process also involves as many as 40 conversations between experts before a decision is reached, placing unnecessary burden on healthcare resources.

A UK SME has developed an optical assay that very quickly assesses the quality of a donor liver. The technology uses a standard camera, phone or tablet computer together with a proprietary slide that is placed on the organ. The assay can be carried out by relatively unskilled staff. The technology has been tested in the field and shown to correlate very well with expert opinion.

The company is looking for commercialisation partners who would like to further develop this technology in readiness for the market. The partner maybe a software company with expertise in medical software and connections into the healthcare field or an investment partner. These partnerships may take the form of technical cooperation or financial agreements. The company would also consider further partnerships with healthcare providers wishing to trial the technology.
Advantages and Innovations:

- Reduces burden on consultants during difficult periods (weekends and nights)
- More accurate
- Compatible with existing clinical practice
- Doesn´t require chemicals or expensive capital equipment
Stage of Development:
Field tested/evaluated
IPs:
Patent(s) applied for but not yet granted
