BD Technologies is located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, one of the largest and most successful research parks in the world. BD Technologies, formerly known as Becton Dickinson Research Center, was established in 1972 to provide basic research and development support for improving manufacturing and process methods, and to serve as a window on future technological trends.

BD Technologies resides in the middle of an impressive scientific community of major educational and research institutions, including Duke University, the University of North Carolina and North Carolina State University. In 1999, BD Technologies established the first private life science new business incubator, the BD BioVenture Center, in Research Triangle Park. In 2002, BD Technologies joined with Johns Hopkins Singapore to establish BD BioVenture Centre, Singapore, a full-service business incubator dedicated to serving the emerging biomedical science industry in Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region.

Focus Areas
BD Technologies develops proprietary technology platforms in the following areas:

  • Advanced Drug Delivery
    Maximize therapeutic effectiveness/risk ratio and patient acceptance via non- and minimally-invasive drug delivery technologies.

    The Advanced Drug Delivery group at BD Technologies is researching novel and proprietary delivery technologies designed to enhance the therapeutic value and convenience of vaccine and drug delivery. Over the past 100 years, BD has developed a wealth of knowledge about effective parenteral drug delivery. BD Technologies, working alone and partnering with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and government research organizations, has applied its technology to the next frontiers of drug and vaccine science.

  • Advanced Diagnostics and Biosensors
    To develop biosensors for real-time, continuous monitoring systems for research and clinical applications.

    The Advanced Diagnostics and Biosensors group is developing new biosensor detection systems enabling new diagnostic platforms. These platforms have self-contained detection systems, eliminating traditional sample preparation. This new approach may enable multiple applications to monitor and diagnose disease.

  • Cell and Tissue Engineering
    To develop products and services that will provide ample and safe supplies of human cells for research and therapy.

    The Cell and Tissue Engineering group builds on BD's core capabilities and market leadership in cell media, molecular biology, cell analysis and delivery devices.

    BD's core technology is a unique high throughput systems biology platform that combines automation technologies with state-of-the-art bioinformatics. This technology platform enables efficient identification of methods and environments for producing cells for therapy and research.

    Business Development
    Providing solutions for unmet healthcare needs through innovation, teamwork and partnership excellence, fulfilling BD's corporate purpose of 'Helping all people live healthy lives'.

    BD Technologies is an innovation center of BD, aiming to be a technology leader in specialized fields of research. We value external partnership in addition to our internal research and development activities.
