A very futuristic approach of Life Sciences is on the way. New in vitro diagnostics systems, new therapy strategies, genetic diseases treatments, targeted and intelligent drug delivery, artificial pancreas are health improvements promised to the future generations, enabled by semiconductor and MEMS technologies. The Life Sciences industry is already facing very important challenges to take its way to this expected innovation breakthrough.
The future of Life Sciences will be possible by bringing together many different technologies like microelectronics, mechanics, optics, physics, molecular biology. Indeed microelectronics that has led to the explosion of consumer electronics sales could now bring its added value to different Life Science applications. The key challenge for microelectronics is to make complexity invisible, to make technology accurate, reproducible and intuitive for a natural use.
The purpose of the report is to provide a better understanding of Life Sciences to semi-conductor and MEMS companies, with a detailed analysis of the different application fields, market evaluation and strategy analysis for semiconductor and MEMS companies. It presents and describes the biological challenges ins and out. It highlights the specificities of the different Life Science industries and the business opportunities for semiconductor and MEMS companies. It also answers the question: "how could IC and MEMS companies become key leaders in the Life Sciences field"?
The report offers value to IC manufacturers, MEMS manufacturers, materials and equipment suppliers as well as system manufacturers so as to understand the business potential, the technology status and who is doing what for strategic and marketing decision making.
