  • Nanoparticles: Revolutionizing Drug Delivery

    Drug delivery entails administering a drug molecule to the desired location. The objective is to minimize side effects while improving therapeutic efficacy. Nanoparticles have proven to be promising drug delivery platform, and a lot of research is being done focused on leveraging them for benefits such as targeted delivery, sustained/modified release, delivery to hard-to-access physiological systems (blood-brain-barrier), etc.

  • 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. 

  • 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.

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

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

  • Innovative Plastics & Polymer Additives for Smart Packaging

    The smart packaging market is gaining traction, especially among sectors such as food and pharma, and is likely to boom in the coming years. 

  • How Plastics Can Boost 3D-Printing of Medical Devices

    The wide usage of plastics, especially photopolymers, can evidently unlock the great potential, in terms of applications, of 3D printing of medical devices.

  • Emergence of Self-Cleaning Products Sector

    The self-cleaning products sector got a boost last year from the global pandemic. The need to keep hands sanitized and surfaces disinfected led to mass adoption of these products. The sector also saw many entrants and attracted the interest of investors. In addition, self-cleaning products continue to evolve and become more sophisticated as technology advances.

  • 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.

  • Can Antimicrobial, Antiviral Surface Coatings Curb the Spread of COVID-19?

    An antimicrobial surface coating is widely used to control the growth of pathogens on surfaces and in building facilities. Currently, scientists and researchers are working closely with the paint and coatings industry players across the globe to develop antimicrobial, antiviral coating solutions that would prevent the spread of COVID-19 through surface contamination.

  • ‘Meatless’ Meat: Opportunities for Plant-based Protein Ingredients

    Rising concerns over environmental protection, coupled with growing health consciousness and popularity of concepts such as veganism, have created the need for meatless sources of protein. Plant-based protein ingredients are rapidly gaining acceptance as an alternative and their market share is increasing fast.

  • COVID-19 Vaccines Under Pre-Clinical Development

    SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) is an enveloped, positive, single-strand RNA virus. Currently, there are no approved vaccines to safeguard people from this virus. More than 100 projects worldwide are centred on developing a potential vaccine for the coronavirus. Vaccines under clinical development vary in type and platforms used; the types of vaccines that are mainly developed are DNA, RNA, VLP, inactivated, live attenuated, and protein subunit vaccines. The list provides details on the vaccines under clinical trial and is a ready reference for all trials in clinical and pre-clinical phases.

  • Nanoparticle Drug Delivery Systems For Cancer Treatment

    Nanotechnology is a rapidly evolving domain solving various issues associated with conventional drug therapeutics, including poor water solubility

  • Gene Therapy - Advanced Treatments for a New Era

    Gene therapy involves inserting/deleting/correcting genetic material into human cells to fight or prevent diseases. It is a promising tool not only for cancer but for several other diseases, such as Parkinson's, HIV, severe combined immuno-deficiencies and hemophilia, to name a few.

  • Cardiac Nuclear Imaging and Radiotracers

    Recent novel radiopharmaceuticals agents developed to target specific subcellular process are capable of significantly improving diagnostic accuracy and prognostic evaluation.

    The global nuclear medicine diagnostic (PET and SPECT) market is slated to cross $ 16 billion by 2019, primarily driven by more accurate diagnostic utilities in identifying the functional and perfusion status of targeted tissues.
