Optical imaging is the technique for taking images of the internal body parts non-invasively. Visible light and photons are used to take the detailed image of internal organs and tissues. It also takes images of smaller structures includes cells and molecules. These images are used by doctors for diagnosis and treatment of diseases and also by scientists for different research work.
Optical imaging market is in emerging state mainly due to the use of non-ionizing radiations which reduces the radiation expose of patients. Also optical imaging has potential to differentiate between soft tissues using various properties of photons like absorption or scattering at different wavelengths. Furthermore, optical imaging is combined with different imaging techniques such as MRI or X-rays which provides enhanced images that is very useful for the study of complex diseases. Also, optical imaging can measure different properties of tissues and organs by using various colors of light with different wavelengths. However, factors such as high cost associated with the imaging process, stringent government policies and lack of skilled technicians are impeding the market growth.

Antibody drug conjugates (ADCs), also known as anti-cancer drugs are promising and effective modalities for cancer therapies. The ADCs are prepared by combining two principles i.e. monoclonal antibody specificity and cell killing efficacy of HPAPI (highly potent active pharmaceutical ingredient). This combinational approach specifically kills the cancer cells by a toxic payload through binding and internalizing ADC into the cancerous cells. Several years of extensive biological research
An Ostomy is a surgical procedure in which body wastes such as (urine, mucus and stools) are eliminated through an artificial opening from the colon of the human body, either to the outside surface or into a suitable organ. These wastes are collected in an artificial bags sited outside the patient’s body, called Ostomy Drainage Bags. These bags are used in the treatment of many diseases for instance-bladder, intestinal, inflammatory bowel diseases and many types of cancers.
