  • Gene Therapy – Promising Method to Cure Diseases

    Gene therapy is ‘the use of genes as medicines’, which involves the transfer of a therapeutic gene into specific cells of an individual to repair an unhealthy gene.

  • 3D Printing of Human Organs — Future Perspective & IP Scenario

    Thousands of patients are waiting for a lifesaving transplant today. Some of these are critical cases, and mortality in those patients is high due to a dearth of suitable donors.

    3D-Printed organs may emerge as a life-saver for such patients.

  • How single-use technologies drive process optimization in biopharmaceutical manufacturing

    Fixed stainless steel systems have been the desired choice for manufacturing high volumes of biopharma drugs for many decades due to their mass-production capability. Over the last two to three years, Single-use systems has increasingly found application in commercial manufacturing of biologics as they are low in CAPEX and more suitable for smaller and less-funded companies and even contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs). Single-use systems eliminate the cleaning process entirely, saving not only on cost associated with manual labor but also on the time required to validate the stainless steel equipment prior to re-use, thus making it more sustainable than stainless steel technology.

  • Can Catalysts Drive Chemical Industry Away From Fossil Feedstocks?

    Increasing the contribution of renewable energy sources is one of the key themes in meeting the climate change goals set under Paris Agreement. Despite the push for renewable energy coming from regulators, the corporate sector and academia, the percentage of total global primary energy demand met by wind and solar energy is still under 2% (as per the 2016 IEA Report). In order to reduce the overall carbon footprint, it is important to not only address energy sources but also explore and use no/low carbon feedstock sources and technologies.

  • Commercialization of Nano-additives — Labs to Market

    Through the application of nanotechnology, existing products such as fuel, cement, or food can be manipulated on an atomic, molecular, or supramolecular scale by means of nano-additives/nano-fillers so as to enhance their physical or chemical properties. 

  • Personalization of Treatment: Moving from Volume to Value

    The new healthcare ecosystem is increasingly becoming “patient-centric”. With the “one-drug-for-all” approach rapidly being replaced by personalized treatment, pharmaceutical companies are scouting for technology enablers to realize this goal.

  • Biofuel from Algae – Energy Security for the Future

    Biofuel is any fuel that can be obtained from organic matter through the process of biological carbon fixation.

  • Biofuels – Hot Attraction among Alternative Energy Patent Seekers

    The biofuel sector has attracted a considerable amount of research, with more than 2,500 patents filed every year since the past five years.

  • The US IPO Market is on an Upswing in 2017

    While the number of IPOs in the US decreased from 275 in 2014 to 105 in 2016, the US IPO market has rebounded in 1H2017. The rebound can be attributed to a backdrop of stable economic indicators, strong job growth & improved corporate earnings, all of which should make for low market volatility in the coming quarters.

  • 9 Things to Research Before You Enter a New Market

    One man’s ignorance is another man’s opportunity.

    In a world where external forces are impacting business’ success like never before, conventional wisdom and experience can no longer guide future strategies. To gain a strategic advantage, companies must learn about the what, where, and why of the market environment they plan to enter.

    They need a good Competitive Intelligence (CI) strategy.

  • Why Tech Watch Should Be a Part of Your Competitive Intelligence (CI) Strategy

    “Opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you miss.”

    ― Andy Rooney

  • Why Technology Surveillance Tools Are Not Enough for Tech Watch

    When technology evolves at a breakneck pace, it is necessary for dynamic organizations to track the innovations and technological developments affecting their area of business, and be aware of the opportunities — and threats — coming their way.

  • 8 Things to Look for in a Good Research Partner

    If you're in business, you're at war.

    Odds are you’re also trying to run a lean business, which means you've not got enough manpower to chuck into the trenches.

    When it comes to gathering critical information about the markets, the competitors, or even the feasibility of key business decisions; most firms operating out there have in-house research experts that are a jack of all trades, but masters of none. And this might work in few cases.

    Sometimes though, and this definitely sneaks up on the weary that aren’t wary, you’ll need to spring a little extra for situations that call for specific expertise.

    Your first big decision is whether you want to tackle this internally, or hire a Research Partner.
