The global spread of the fatal corona virus has hampered the movement of commodities across continents and regions. The virus outbreak impacted the entire supply chain, from raw material delivery to finished goods transit. The providers have formed a special team to assess the complete supply chain of raw materials and finished goods. During the pandemic era, the special team is responsible for assessing cross-border problems and trade restrictions. Furthermore, in order to meet the criteria, the manufacturers have improved their transportation facilities and upgraded their packaging infrastructure.

Assays based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) are used to detect genetic material from a specific organism, such as a virus. These assays are generally used for the rapid and precise diagnosis of infectious disorders caused by viruses or bacteria. It is also utilised to identify on-cultivable or slow-growing microorganisms from tissue culture assays and animal models, such as anaerobic bacteria, mycobacteria, or viruses. It enables the detection of small numbers of disease organisms in convenient samples, whether dead or alive. Standard single PCR, allele-specific PCR, multiplex PCR, and real-time PCR are all examples of PCR-based assays.

The ELISA-based assay is a plate-based assay technique for detecting and quantifying soluble molecules such proteins, peptides, hormones, and antibodies. Direct ELISA, indirect ELISA, sandwich ELISA, and competitive ELISA are the four types of ELISA. An antigen-coated multi-well plate is detected by an antibody that has been directly coupled to an enzyme in the direct ELISA experiment. It is a fast detection method that eliminates secondary antibody cross-reactivity. Sandwich ELISA is a form of enzyme-linked immunosorbent test that employs two antibodies, one for detection and one for capture. It offers several benefits, including high specificity, adaptability for complicated samples, versatility, and sensitivity. A surface/plate-based test, competitive ELISA coats the plate with capture antibodies reactive to the chemical of interest. A competitive ELISA assay requires no sample preparation and can employ crude or impure samples.

A mass spectrometry-based test has evolved as an effective analytical technique for identifying, characterising, and quantifying different macromolecules in biological materials. In recent years, quantitative bioanalysis of proteins has gained increasing attention and interest. It has several advantages, including the capacity to assess numerous analytes in a single analytical run, the ease with which new assays may be developed, minimal volume requirements, and inexpensive reagent costs. In medication development, there is an increasing demand for quantitative bioanalysis of protein therapies.

The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
