Stephen Ball explores the importance of particle size in biomedical nanotechnology. Experimental data are presented to illustrate how advanced DLS techniques deliver these measurements for colloidal gold in the nanosized and sub-nanosized ranges.
Contributor Cindy H. Dubin interviews several industry experts who believe there is intense competition to develop cutting-edge therapies and get them through development quickly to take advantage of patent exclusivity. And one of the critical elements in the drug development process is analytical testing.
Shri Thanedar, PhD, CEO & Chief Chemist at Avomeen Analytical Services, discusses what sets his company’s analytical laboratory apart from other CROs that serve the pharmaceutical industry.
Aish Vivekanandan, Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan, reports that in the past several years, it seemed that a cry for regulation of LDTs was falling on deaf years at the FDA. However, after a thorough and intricate letter from the Senate and public outcry for regulations, it seems the FDA is finally taking action.
IMMUNOCHEMISTRY ANALYZER MARKET – Mutiplexing Technologies for Infectious Disease, Cancer, Cardiac & Autoimmune Testing Rise Above the Horizon
Divyaa Ravishankar, MS, Senior Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan, indicates the market has undergone a massive change from just a few vendors offering only enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, chemiluminescent immunoassay, radioactive immunoassay, and flourescent immunoassay to also multiplex assays, such as microarrays, flow cytometry-based platforms, recombinant immunoassays, and indirect immunofluorescence assays.
