Cannabis has experienced a global wave of decriminalization and outright legalization for both medicinal and recreational purposes over the past few years. The situation in the United States has been particularly complex, as individual states have taken different approaches, while the federal government continues to enforce drug laws everywhere. Regulations and protocols for growth, distribution, […]
In modern times, Japan has been a haven for high technology, with its companies often paving the way for new technological advancements that help shape industries – such as innovations in robotics, semiconductors, and electronics. Although Japan remains a country of technological innovation and scientific research, current scientists in the country face hurdles in the […]
In our previous article, we reviewed some of the most prominent trends within the food applications industry. Our recent report, Testing Before Tasting: Analytical Instrumentation in Food Applications, delves into the market size and growth drivers as well as end-user perspectives of 135 scientists around the world that currently use analytical tools in food safety […]
Almost everything you eat or drink exists within the confines of modern-day food safety guidelines, standards, and laws. Before it enters the grocery store or restaurant kitchen (and later, your stomach), the raw materials and final product have most likely been tested, processed, manufactured, monitored, validated, quality-checked, characterized, and certified – all before being shipped […]
Our first two articles reviewed the current state of the Bioprocessing Industry by observing the advancements and trends from a technology and end-market perspective. Here we will take a look at the industry from a regional, sector, and end-user perspective. As North America and Europe are the most established regional markets for bioprocessing, combined they […]
In the first article of our series, we discussed the most important trends within the bioprocessing industry: continuous processing, single-use technology, and improving process productivity. These goals have become increasingly important as the bioprocessing industry has quickly become a competitive field due to demand of biosimilars and expanding development and regulatory approval of biologics-based therapeutics.
One important task of science and technology is to help to ensure the security of the food supply. Food security is the availability and access to food; and advances in crop science have helped to increase yields so that the supply of food is adequate for the earth’s population. With the world population growing at […]
Bio-manufacturing instruments and techniques have become influential in everything from generating high yield pharmaceutical precursors, to biofuel conversion from biomass. Bioprocessing, or the mass production of therapeutic products, includes three production phases: upstream, fermentation, and downstream processing, each providing an opportunity for improvement in efficiency.
In the first two articles of this series we covered the recent industry events within the HPLC market and gave a technical overview of 10 of its sub-technologies. This article will take a sneak peek into our 2018 HPLC Market Analysis and Perspectives report and give some insight into the future of this $5+ billion-dollar […]
In our previous post we highlighted recent advancements within the mass spectrometry (MS) market. Key suppliers in the mass spec industry (i.e Thermo Fisher, Aglient, SCIEX, etc.) showcased their newest technologies at the ASMS Conference held in June and many formed partnerships to improve life science applications of mass spec. Our recently published 2018 Mass […]
