Biotech companies around the world employ scientists and physicians to study the causes of diseases. The research and development of medical products and solutions usually involves a large number of tests and takes a correspondingly long time. The longer and more extensive this process is, the more capital these companies require from investors. In the race to bring to market preparations or products that improve people's well-being or fulfill desires, the providers of solutions usually have great sales potential and investors may be bought out through a takeover.


Biological separation

Memphasys (ASX: MEM) from Australia has developed a solution for parents with a desire to have children, which allows high-quality sperm to be biologically separated from the man's seminal fluid. The product from Memphasys is called FELIX and increases the chances of success of artificial insemination. The company thus serves a growth market, as more and more couples are deciding to start their professional career first when planning their lives. With increasing age, however, the chance of success of a natural pregnancy decreases and the advice of experts is sought.

In the second half of 2020, FELIX is to be launched in various countries around the globe. The biological separation process not only works with humans, but can also be used with mammals in the future - also a huge market, according to Alison Coutts Memphasys' market capitalization is currently AUD 52 million at AUD 0.07 per share. The shares are also traded in Germany.


Covid-19 vaccine hope

The US biotech company Moderna (NASDAQ: MRNA) is in the public eye as it is working on a vaccine against Covid-19, and since the outbreak of the Corona Pandemic, the value of its shares has already risen by around 200%, and at USD 62 per share, its market value is over USD 23 billion. In a recent announcement, the company provided information on the development status. The mid-stage clinical trials have started with 600 patients. Moderna has been researching a vaccine candidate since March 2020 and people are hopeful that a vaccine will provide a way out of the Corona Crisis.


Approval for anaesthetics

The Paion (FSE: PA8) shares are also hot at the moment. The company may receive approval for the anesthetic Remimazolam from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the coming months. "In 2020, Paion's focus will be on evaluating the European Phase III study in general anaesthesia, the regulatory approval process in the US, Europe and other regions, the development of the supply chain and commercial manufacturing of Remimazolam, as well as the market preparation and launch of Remimazolam in different territories," the company announced. Paion's most recent liquidity was approximately EUR 18 million and its share price of EUR 2.29 represents a market value of EUR 143 million.
