The blood-related disorders need instant attention, as they could lead to several other complications, especially in those who have chronic ailments. Hemotology analyzers come across as electronic systems counting leucocytes, red cells, and platelets in blood along with clocking haematocrit and haemoglobin. As per the number of parameters, hematology analyzer market spans above 30 parameters, 10-30 parameters, and up to 10 parameters. End-use-wise, it’s research laboratories and clinical laboratories. Sysmex has its XN-9100, SP-50, XN-L, XN-1500, and XN-3100. Out of these SP-50 is one of the automated hematology slide preparation units.
Coming to proper delivery of nutritional supplements and medicines, there are peripheral intravenous catheters. They could be closed/integrated catheters and intravenous catheters. The insertion generally happens at the back of hand or arm’s lower part. The integrated catheters tend to lessen external pressure on vein, thereby doing away with irritation and phlebitis, occlusion, and internal swelling.
The human body loses its mobility with degenerative disc disease. Cervical total disc replacement devices are witnessing an increasing demand since the last few years with growing occurrences of degenerative disc disease. This is evident from the data released by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (in 2017) that 107 in 10K men and 64 in 100K women in the US were affected by cervical radiculopathy. Cervical total disc replacement device, by type of disc, spans M-o-M (Metal on Metal) and M-o-B (Metal on a Biocompatible Material). Indication-wise, it’s radiculopathy, mylopathy, severe neck pain, and others. By material, it’s biocompatible, metallic, and polymeric.
Endoscope reprocessing is of utmost importance to keep bacterial infections at bay. This factor is driving the market for automated endoscope reprocessor. By type of product, the automated endoscope reprocessor market spans dual basin and single basin. Modality-wise, it’s table/benchtop and standalone.
Demand for image analysis software is skyrocketing with increasing investments in cell-based research. As such, informatics platforms are doing the rounds in the automated cell counters. By type, the automated cell counters market spans flow cytometers, image analysis, and electrical impedance coulter counters. End-user-wise, it’s research laboratories, hospital, and diagnostics centers.
Bone void fillers, as the name suggests, address conditions like traumas and fractures, bone tumors (benign and malignant), and osteomyelitis. The excessive demand for bone void filters could be reasoned with advantages like sterility and raw materials available in an aplomb. Form-wise, bone void fillers comprise putty, paste, granules, gel, and likewise. DBM (Demineralized Bone Matrix) fillers are being made available as putty. Developments-wise, BONESUPPPORT AB, in April 2020, did announce submission of their CERAMENT G for diagnosis of osteomyelitis to the US FDA. Around the same time, Biocomposites did announce that their STIMULAN received CE mark from the EU to enable mixing of antibiotics like tobramycin, gentamicin, and vancomycin as one of the treatment options in management of infected sift tissue and bone.
Western blotting refers to an analytical technique for separating and detecting proteins exclusively from complex protein sample. Gel electrophoresis is used for separating proteins on the basis of their molecular weight. Electrophoresis blotting systems include automated dry blotting systems, semi-dry blotting systems, and traditional wet transfer blotting systems. Reagent kits include chromogenic reagents kits, chemiluminescent reagents kits (horseradish peroxidase substrate and alkaline phosphatase substrate), fluorescent reagents, antibodies (primary and secondary), and buffer kits. Application-wise, western blotting consists of scientific research, medical diagnostics, agricultural application, food & beverages, and others.
DMD (Duchenne Musculaar Dystrophy) is amongst the genetic disorders characterized by weakness and progressive muscle degeneration. Based on therapy, the Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Treatment Market spans Exon skipping approach and mutation suppression. BY type of product, it’s corticosteroids and pain management drugs. Investments are coming from all over for DMD treatment. For instance – MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association) has invested US$ 75K in research herein. It also provides funds for 150+ care centers, hospitals, and health care centers.
Infrared thermometers are in greater demand due to the world at large going through the second wave of Covid-19. Non-medical applications include measurement of surface temperatures for suiting multiple industrial applications. Type-wise, it’s portable and fixed. By component, it’s display and control units, electronics, optical components, and others. By end-use, it’s commercial, residential, and industrial.
With aging does come loss of muscles termed as “sarcopenia”. Intake of protein supplement, calcium and vitamin D supplement, and vitamin B12 supplement could be types of sarcopenia treatment.
