Cytosurge's tiny syringes are a game changer for the single cell genomic and gene editing applications; since patenting the technology in 2009 the company has gone from strength to strength.
In this episode, our specialist in the lab equipment space, Lucy Smith, spoke with CEO of Elementar Americas Ryan Titmas. Lucy spoke to Ryan about what it takes to get to the top, as well as some of the lessons he’s learned in his career so far.
When we talk about genomics hubs, then usually we’d be talking about Oxbridge, Boston or Silicon Valley thanks to success stories like 10x Genomics, Illumina or Solexa. However, as the technology needed to conduct genomic R&D becomes more accessible
Coronavirus has provided us with a very large and extremely recent data set for research, patient populations and how different ethnic minorities are being affected versus the research. And the early indicators are that those from minority background
To achieve the WHO's ambitious aim that no woman should die of cervical cancer by 2030 it will take a huge, global effort from companies around the world. Luckily, there is a global community of life sciences companies to help achieve that aim.
Globally, sepsis takes six million lives each year. It causes more deaths than breast cancer, lung cancer and stroke combined. Here are five diagnostics companies combating this ugly statistic.
There are countless benefits to companion diagnostics including better evidence of clinical utility & greater patient access, more efficient use of resources, better safety and economic advantages for drug companies.
It’s hard to estimate the total size and value of the diagnostics market, however by looking at some of the forecasts available, the scale of the industry is evident.
Last week, I visited Dresden for the first time. Although I will return as a tourist (it’s a fantastic city, but more on that later), I was there to meet Dr Karim Tabiti – Chief Executive Officer at Biotype Diagnostic – a molecular diagnostic SME ...
In the world of in vitro diagnostics, there’s nowhere more exciting than Asia. To put it into context, in the period between 2017 and 2022, the North American IVD market is expected to grow from $31.1B to $36.9B,but the Asian market over the same...
Everyone is always developing the next big thing in diagnostics. Whether it’s a blood test to identify a disease earlier than ever, or a point-of-care device that might save thousands of lives in a rural area, the whole market is constantly evolving.
Collaborations can produce amazing results. When the Wright Brothers put their heads together, they learned how to fly. When Lennon and McCartney met in 1957, pop music was changed forever.
There aren’t many sectors of industry that have seen as much progress in the last 20 years as molecular diagnostics. Point of care testing has, in some cases, eliminated the need for samples to be sent off to labs, enabling physicians to obtain near-
The value of the point-of-care (POC) diagnostics market has been steadily increasing for the past 40 years, but we’ve seen exponential growth in the last 2. POC analysis offers several advantages to laboratory-based tests, given that they are norm...
