Pharmaceutical biotechnical companies, research institutes and physicians will find this study to be of interest.


The scope of this study encompasses the global markets and technologies of the molecular, nanoscale and atomic imaging markets in pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets. BCC analyzes each market and its applications, regulatory environment, technology involved, market projections and market share. Technological issues include the latest trends and developments. The emerging market for molecular, nanoscale and atomic imaging includes countries such as India, China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.


BCC conducted a comprehensive literature search, which included technical newsletters and journals, and many other sources. Data were collected through interviews and correspondence with manufacturers and technical experts of molecular, nanoscale and atomic imaging. Projections were based on estimates such as the current number of end users, potential end users, mergers and acquisitions, and market trends.


Many companies within the industry were surveyed to obtain data for this study. Included were manufacturers and end users of molecular, nanoscale and atomic imaging. Data were gathered from various industry sources. BCC spoke with officials within the industry and consulted newsletters, company literature, product literature and a host of technical articles, journals, indexes and abstracts. Exhaustive investigations of databases by key terminology were completed. In addition, data were compiled from current financial, trade and government sources.


The study has been carried out by a team of professionals in the biotechnology industry. The project manager for this project was Shalini S. Dewan , who holds a master's degree in pharmaceutical chemistry and has over 14 years of industry experience. Among the research topics she has covered are studies on compounds of potential pharmaceutical interest from ibuprofen and 2-naphthyl acetic acid. Shalini was awarded a Gold Medal by the Prime Minister of India for her work and has worked with top companies in India and in the U.S. Some of her other reports with BCC are: Reagents for Chromatography; Spectroscopy: An Enduring Market; Advanced Drug Delivery Systems: Technologies and Global Markets; Orthopedic Drugs, Implants and Devices; Medical Imaging Reagents and Analysis Equipment; Pharmaceutical Regulatory Industry; The Dynamic Media, Sera and Reagent Market in Biotechnology; Contract Pharmaceutical Manufacturing, Research and Packaging: Global Markets; Chiral Technology: Global Markets; Autacoids and Related Drugs: Technologies and Global Markets; Contraceptives: Technologies and Global Markets; Liver Disease Treatments: The Global Market; Hormone Replacement Therapies and Other Hormone Therapies: Global Markets; Cardiovascular Medicine: Diagnostics, Drugs and Devices; and Cancer Therapies: Technologies and Global Markets.

The lead consultant for this project was Dr. Kapil A. Setia , who holds a doctoral degree in life sciences. She has a number of research publications in her credit, including her thesis, which was given an award of excellence.
