Bullet BioMEMS 2010-2015 Market Report



New in-vitro diagnostic systems, new therapy strategies, genetic disease treatment, targeted and intelligent drug delivery, artificial pancreas, drug discovery processes are healthcare improvements promised to future generations. Many challenges are related to miniaturization, which will probably be enabled by Semiconductor and Microsystem technologies.


The Healthcare industry faces critical technical and economic challenges to develop these new technologies. The innovation process of the future starts, by understanding the current technologies, their limits and advantages, and especially how the healthcare industry applies them.


The BioMEMS 2010 report is a robust analysis of the Micro Devices with the most advances to develop solutions for vital bio-medical applications. The devices considered are:

  • Pressure sensors

  • Silicon microphones

  • Accelerometers

  • Gyroscopes

  • Optical MEMS and Image sensors

  • Microfluidic chips

  • Microdispensers for drug delivery

  • Flow meters

  • Infrared temperature sensors

  • Emerging MEMS (RFID, Strain sensors, Energy Harvesting)

Also addressed are the Regulation Aspects for medical device development.


The report includes a section dedicated to BioMEMS activities in China. For the past 5 years, lots of start-up biotechnology companies have launched in the Chinese market. In addition, large Biochip companies are expanding and exporting, such as CapitalBio, Health-Digital and Shanghai Biochip.
