Case Study: Scopus improves product development outcomes

on Tue, 04/14/2015 - 13:44

Scopus is the choice of preference for more than 3,000 academic, government and corporate institutions. This is what James, a research pathologist for a medical device manufacturer who works with Scopus on a regular basis, told us about his experience.

James is an experienced research pathologist for a medical device manufacturer, busy with at least 10 projects at any given time. His contribution to product development ranges from shaping early stage proof-of-concept work to preparations for submission to regulatory authorities. The common denominator for him is to understand disease states and product impacts on the body.

James spends about 20% of his time on large, breakthrough innovation projects on a team dedicated to uncovering new ideas. The product innovation process starts with discussing approaches and capabilities for addressing a problem.

Case Study: Scopus supports innovation in diagnostic testing

Did you know that Scopus is used by more than 3,000 academic, government and corporate institutions? We had the chance to interview some of the corporate researchers who work with Scopus on a regular basis and asked them about their experience. This is the story of Chris, a biologist and an experienced research scientist in parasitology and virology.

In his current role as a regional head of R&D, Chris focuses on existing product support as well as ongoing evolution of tests that must detect antibodies and antigens as well as parasitic, bacterial or viral disease in livestock animals.

The breadth and functionality of Scopus searching allows Chris and his team to build on their initial search and follow references until they have a complete picture of the topic at hand: “For a new virus, we don’t know anything about it. We go to Scopus and type it in, see what we get.
