BIC WEBINAR: How to Commercialize Your Biomarker Discovery


In this very interesting webinar, Valerie Daussin Laurent, the project leader of the BIC consortium, touches upon themes such as what is a biomarker invention and its (often bumpy) route from an invention to a product.

Valerie also introduces the viewer to the Biomarker Commercialization Tools, in particular the BIC Guide, which is a web-based tool that supports academic researchers, SMEs, and the technology transfer offices when developing an in-vitro diagnostic biomarker invention to a commercial product.

She concludes the webinar with a concrete biomarker commercialization case story with an unfortunate ending that showcases just how essential to success good supporting tools and knowledge of the whole commercialization process are.

The BIC Guide is completely free and available from, where you can find also other biomarker commercialization tools, all developed to facilitate the commercialization process.
