Lens On The Scientific Market
Key findings from our industry experts.
Cancer is a disease that has been described and treated from almost the beginnings of human history, albeit in a very limited way at the start. Ancient Egyptians used surgical methods to remove visible tumors, though they recognized the limitations of their methods and knew it was not a true cure. One of the earliest […]
Throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic thus far, much of our attention at SDi has been on technologies that have benefited in the wake of the pandemic.

Consumables currently comprise a little less than one-third of the total market for laboratory instruments, and their market share will grow to a little more than one-third in just a few years.

Environmental testing labs have been no exception, with many having to focus on COVID-19 testing or having to furlough staff. Environmental testing is conducted by a variety of industries, including utilities, government regulators, […]
The world has changed in ways that would have been difficult to imaging just five months ago, when SDi released its flagship Global Assessment Report in February 2020. In that time, COVID-19 has dominated our lives, leaving no one untouched health wise, economically, or socially. For most involved in laboratory research and development, the first […]
As drug discovery and research efforts for COVID-19 therapies have inherited the spotlight in pharma and clinical labs around the world, interest in automated liquid handlers and robotics that can handle the workload has been increasing rapidly. This should not be surprising, as large-scale testing is needed to process thousands of patient samples every day […]
