Marketing Analysis: Price-per-Click Costs Reveal Current Levels of Market Competition for iPSCs

Purpose of Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell (iPSC) Marketing Analysis

An important area to consider for purposes of quantifying and assessing conditions within the iPSC market is marketing costs.

 Because Google now controls over 70% of online searches, Google Adwords is the single best resource available for analyzing both marketing costs and online search behavior within the induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) market.  Specifically, this post considers marketing costs for search terms related to iPSCs, using the Google Adwords tool.

Awards Given to Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell (iPSC) Researchers

 Since iPSCs were first produced in 2006 from mouse cells and in 2007 from human cells, research scientists have recognized the wide-ranging potential of the cell type, including the possibility of using them in drug and toxicology screening, disease modeling, and cellular therapy applications ranging from gene correction, to whole tissue regeneration, individualized medicine, and more.

Since the discovery of induced pluripotent stem cells, the commercial sector has also recognized the huge profits that could potentially be generated from the cell type, and the question being explored among the private sector has been how to generate maximal commercial value through the development of iPSC applications and technologies.

Non-Commercial Organizations Supporting the Development of iPSC Therapies

In a recent post, we considered commercial entities supporting the development of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) therapies. It is also important to consider the government and academic entities driving forward therapeutic progress with the cell type.

The primary non-commercial institutions working toward this goal are:

  1. RIKEN Center in Kobe, Japan
  2. Kyoto University in Kyoto, Japan
  3. California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) in California, USA

Each of these important institutions and their contributions to the development of new iPSC therapies is explored in detail below.

July is National Cord Blood Awareness Month

5 More Cord Blood Banking Awareness Stats You May Not Know

In honor of July being National Cord Blood Awareness Month, BioInformant is releasing five more cord blood banking awareness statistics that you may not know. These facts are distributed weekly (every Wednesday) on our social media platforms, as part of our ongoing partnership with the Save the Cord Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to educating the public about the value of cord blood and tissue preservation.

In tackling an educational campaign to promote cord blood banking awareness, it is critical to acknowledge that the effort has two components: 

1) Increasing awareness among parents, as well as those who support them, including brothers, sisters, grandparents, and friends.

2) Increasing awareness among the medical community, most notably among obstetricians.

For this reason, our  weekly cord blood banking awareness statistics focus on both of these areas.  Enjoy these five new facts and join our mailing list below to receive new weekly facts as they are released! Continue reading July is National Cord Blood Awareness Month

Does Your Stem Cell Market Intelligence Provider Use Futuristic Techniques?

Futuristic, the adjective, means “having or involving very modern technology or design.” In no other area has this term become more important than in the area of market research methodologies. Indeed, 2015 has never seen more opportunity for analysis of data, as the total global amount of data is now estimated at approximately 4 zettabytes, with a zettabyte being 10007 bytes.

As such, techniques for managing analysis of this massive global population of data must dynamically evolve as well.

Under these circumstances, it is important to ask yourself, has your market research provider embraced techniques that allow for accurate assessment of this vast population of data? While you may not understand the precise meaning of research terms such as meta-analysis, algorithmic analysis, or predictive trend analysis, there is an easy two-part process that you can use to answer this question, as explained below.

The first element is to consider the transparency of your market research provider with regard to the methodologies that they employ. Without this information, you have no baseline on which to base your conclusions.

Specifically, your market research provider should provide you with crystal clear answers to the following: Continue reading Does Your Stem Cell Market Intelligence Provider Use Futuristic Techniques?
