Tech Launch Arizona Can Help You Use Your Lab Materials to Drive Income

Tech Launch Arizona
April 11, 2018

You have unique, useful materials in your lab. Are they working as hard as they can for you?

Has your research demanded that you develop a new kind of material? Do you have something in your lab freezer that might be useful or valuable to other investigators? Do you receive requests for materials that your lab produces, such as:

  • Reagents
  • Catalysts
  • Composites
  • Animal models
  • Antibodies
  • Plasmids
  • Vectors
  • Organic materials
  • Probes
  • Demonstration samples

Research materials aren't typically patentable, but they certainly are valuable and can generate revenue.

Tech Launch Arizona – the UA office dedicated to commercializing inventions stemming from research – can help you evaluate the value of these materials and help set up strategies to make them available to others.

Broaden the impact of your work and create a revenue stream for you and your lab.

Our discussions are completely confidential, and we help you fulfill all your grant reporting requirements. Most research contracts contain language regarding reporting inventions; we'll help you understand your responsibilities.

Contact TLA to learn how to turn your materials into income at 520-621-5000 or

Thank you,

The Tech launch Arizona Team
