I think maybe you could roughly look at the mean and var of each gene. If the var/mean is much higher than 1, then you may treat them as "bilogical rep"? And if the var/mean is around 1, you may treat them as "tech rep".. Since people saw technical reps are poisson distributed. And for biological reps, the var of the poisson is overdispersed.
