Biotechnology covers a broad spectrum of useful products and technologies derived from living systems and organisms. Diagnostics now include DNA, RNA, RNAi, aptamers, microarrays, tissue arrays, biomarkers and companion diagnostics - all heading toward being paired up with next generation sequencing technologies such as emerging nanopore platforms. Biotech uses biological processes such as fermentation and harnesses biocatalysts such as enzymes, yeast, and other microbes to become microscopic manufacturing plants for a new type of agriculture. And as the days of the petrochemical companies wane, biofuels and biomass presage an new era of renewable energy. Biotech has advanced from being new and disruptive, to produce the bio-bricks new industries are built from.
BCC Research covers all the key areas in the biotechnology market from healthcare, telemedicine, food and beverage, biopharmaceuticals, and agricultural technologies.
