Compare Blue Heron Biotech to Competitors

Qwell Pharmaceuticals

Qwell Pharmaceuticals is a biotechnology company focused on small molecule development primarily for oncology indications.

ADV Bioscience

ADV Bioscience is a biotechnology service company engaged in the application of self-developed, public domain technologies and licensed technologies primarily for gene discovery research and validation. The company's focus is offering these technologies primarily to the Chinese market.


ParentPlus LLC was formed to alleviate male-factor subfertility by bringing biotechnology to millions of subfertile couples for whom intra-uterine insemination (IUI) might be an appropriate therapy. This therapy, with spousal or donor sperm, is underutilized perhaps in part because it frequently is neglected in the popular press. It is the company's belief that sperm from many subfertile men should be the target of a therapy based on modern biotechnology. Successful application of this concept could allow far more subfertile couples, when male-factor subfertility is a problem, to use IUI with spousal sperm to fulfill their dream of a having a baby. Hence, the focus of ParentPlus LLC is on reproductive media to enhance success primarily via IUI, but also enhancing IVF. In due course, demonstrated increased success rate with IUI using ParentPlus products will increase acceptance of IUI as the low cost alternative to highly publicized expensive treatments.

Bar Harbor BioTechnology Logo
Bar Harbor BioTechnology

Bar Harbor Biotech is a life sciences company spun-out from The Jackson Laboratory to develop gene expression products and services. Bar Harbor Biotech's technology focuses on real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (PCR), an established technique for gene expression used in disease research, molecular diagnostics, drug discovery, and other fields of biology research.


OrphageniX is a drug development company aiming to develop therapeutics for genetic diseases using advancements in "Gene Editing" technologies. OrpageniX will focus on the low volume, high margin specialty pharmaceutical niche area of "Orphan Diseases" which are protected under the Orphan Drug Act (ODA). Per the company, the OrphageniX technology can be used for diagnostics and research tools. Gene Editing uses the cell's innate repair mechanisms to repair mutations that result in genetic diseases. According to OrphaageniX, it is similar to gene therapy but avoids the risks associated with a viral vector. It works like anti-sense and RNAi, but is more efficient and permanent within the repaired cell because it changes the gene itself and not the transient message. The company states that it has major collaborations with Yale Medical School, Albert Einstein Medical Center and the University of Washington.

Dicerna Pharmaceuticals Logo
Dicerna Pharmaceuticals

Dicerna Pharmaceuticals is a pharmaceutical company developing RNA interference (RNAi)-based therapeutics against genetically-defined targets in multiple disease areas, including cancer. Dicerna's therapeutic approach utilizes its Dicer Substrate siRNA (DsiRNA) molecules and EnCore drug delivery technologies to silence previously undruggable disease targets, offering a potential new treatment option for patients. Dicerna delivers its DsiRNA molecules to cancer cells using its EnCore lipid nanoparticle drug delivery technology. EnCore has been specifically engineered to accumulate in tumors and mediate efficient delivery of the DsiRNAs to the RNAi machinery in the cancer cell cytoplasm. Encore particles are well tolerated and manufactured using well-established unit operations to ensure commercial scalability.
