BCR Corporation Company Profile

05:56 EST 11th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

BCR Diagnostics, a pioneer in spore-based biosensor technology, announced today that it has been selected by the National Institutes of Health to take part in the final stage of its Commercialization Assistance Program (NIH-CAP) called the Life Sciences Showcase. The opportunity will provide BCR the chance to present its latest technologic breakthrough to a group of business development executives, venture capitalists and industry leaders, and hone its commercialization strategy in an effort to bring its products to market. “NIH-CAP has been an invaluable experience,” said Boris Rotman, CSO at BCR. “We’ve gained insight into our business plan, received feedback from key experts and explored business opportunities for the future. Our goal is to find a strategic partner to help us through the FDA approval process and I’m optimistic about the outcome.” At the Showcase, BCR will discuss its novel engineering process for creating synthetic phenotypes in living Bacillus spores. Specifically, BCR will discuss fluorogenic spores (F-spores™) designed to perform as self-reporters of viability. “An important commercial application of F-spores™ is rapid (less than 60 minutes) sterility testing,” said Rotman. “Conventional tests using normal spores require two to four days so a real-time alternative is crucial to ensuring safety in the healthcare, pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries.” The NIH-CAP Life Sciences Showcase will be held on June 29 at the San Jose Convention Center in Silicon Valley, California. # # # About BCR Diagnostics Founded by Boris Rotman (emeritus professor of Brown University Medical School), BCR is a privately held Rhode Island corporation dedicated to developing novel biosensor platforms for detecting extremely low levels of bacteria in less than 30 minutes. Life-saving applications for BCR's products include clinical diagnostics, biological warfare defense, testing platelets intended for transfusion, screening food and beverages, and environmental monitoring.
