Biofuels & Bio-Based Products

Innovation and investment in renewable products has been catalyzed by global environmental concerns, sustainability and the finite availability of fossil derived feedstocks. Legislation on carbon emissions is an additional inducement to move toward renewable products.


Molecular Diagnostics

Important breakthroughs in high throughput sample preparation, next generation sequencing technology, data management and detection technology has provided a strong impetus to the development of new molecular diagnostic techniques. In the USA, a focus on the early detection of bio-terrorism threats and potential pandemics such as avian influenza has spawned a considerable number of companies and significant early stage funding.


Drug Discovery

The past 15 years have seen tremendous innovation in the drug discovery platforms and technologies space. Examples include combinatorial chemistry technologies, large-scale sample archiving and retrieval, and high and medium throughput screening platforms. The latter has benefited from advances in detection technologies, sample handling, and automation in general.


Life Sciences Tools

The life sciences tools industry is innovation-driven and multi-faceted. Business resources are tied up not only on innovation and current revenue recognition activities, but also managing mature technologies and products. The risk of the introduction of disruptive technologies is ever-present as is the revenue drop associated with patent expiration.
