Micro-nanotechnologies (MNT) are already creating a profound impression on our day-by-day lives. New purposes are good underway within the US, Asia, and Europe. in spite of the fact that, their most likely disruptive nature, in addition to the public’s issues, has produced a couple of demanding situations. Commercializing Micro-Nanotechnology items offers a image of the present industry state of affairs and info the necessity for MNT improvement. It outlines the issues dealing with today’s companies and discusses the approaches for commercialization, highway mapping, expertise move research, and entrepreneurial improvement.

The publication starts off through detailing the stairs required to show an idea right into a marketable product. The editors supply examples of formerly winning items and relate to their very own stories in improvement. subsequent, the textual content specializes in the significance of entrepreneurship and the mandatory steps to finance and increase a business plan. It includes quite a few definitions of nanotechnology and the way every one pertains to roadmap and construction matters. 3 designated case reports from the top MNT improvement and production businesses describe how each one enterprise all started and advanced to turn into a industry chief. those reports supply important perception into overcoming the demanding situations concerning attaining monetary backing and specifying the ideal product for improvement.

This reference presents the one insightful appraisal of the present prestige of micro-nanotechnology items. It describes a concise strategy for product commercialization, from marketplace examine to finish product attention. Commercializing Micro-Nanotechnologies presents a transparent technique for selecting the suitable product to improvement and overcoming demanding situations within the transforming into worldwide marketplace.

Bohn11 notes that measuring and managing these technologies is difficult. Bower and Christensen12 further expand this definition with the statement that technology is considered disruptive when its utility generates service products or physical products with different performance attributes that may not be valued by existing customers. ” Academic research that develops new science sometimes results in the academic researchers starting new companies to invent and commercialize new products and services.

Cartridge. indb 19 10/23/07 10:22:00 AM 20 Commercializing Micro-Nanotechnology Products automated and requires no medical specialist to operate it. Each cartridge is capable of performing up to eight tests. The portable blood analysis system eliminates the traditional process of sending a blood sample to a central laboratory for analysis then waiting for some time before the results come back to the patient. Adopting this device means major changes to the way hospitals do blood tests. This initially did raise, and still does, problems of acceptance by the professionals, as it is seen as an example of a disruptive technology that threatens jobs and traditional practices.

This achieved a significant improvement — but it was not good enough. Then dicing blade performance was investigated with suppliers who thought their experience and expertise produced the best blade possible — but it was not good enough. The company undertook a development effort to select the appropriate material and develop a dicing blade to meet the ink-jet requirements. When the dicing blade was developed, the process was offered to dicing blade suppliers to produce dicing blades to meet ink-jet requirements.
