The Aware Rapid Test Product Line

The company's HIV 1/2 rapid tests are used for the detection of antibodies to HIV-1 and HIV Type 2, a second type of HIV (HIV-2), in oral fluid and blood samples using a lateral flow dipstick design (the HIV-1/2 Rapid Tests). The company's Aware line of tests are suited to address the needs of developing world markets in Africa and parts of southeast Asia, as well as the Middle East and eastern Europe. The company has developed Aware line of rapid tests for use in point of care settings in remote locations. It has developed tests for the detection of antibodies to HIV-1 and HIV-2 that can use either oral fluid or blood as a specimen sample. The company also developed a test that uses urine as a specimen sample. Its Aware line includes the following products:

Aware HIV-1/2 OMT (Oral fluid) PRO (Professional): The company developed the Aware HIV-1/2 OMT test to address the drawbacks of blood testing. This test is suited to clinical or professional settings in the developing world. The company has approval to sell its Aware HIV-1/2 OMT rapid test product in countries, including China, Russia, India, South Africa, the U.A.E., Iraq, Uganda, Kenya, Cote d’Ivoire, and Peru.

Aware HIV-1/2 Oral OTC: The Aware HIV-1/2 Oral OTC test is an over-the-counter version of its oral fluid rapid test. The test is designed for markets, such as the Middle East, Russia, and other eastern European and central Asian countries.

HIV-1 BED Incidence EIA

The HIV-1 BED Incidence EIA Test, re-named the Aware BED HIV-1 Incidence Test, (the Incidence Test) is designed to estimate the rate of new HIV infections in a population by determining what proportion of a population of HIV infected people were infected recently. The company also markets a control kit that contains materials required to use the incidence test for testing dried blood, serum, or plasma spots.

Aware Messenger Oral Fluid Sample Collection Device

The company's Aware Messenger oral fluid collection device is intended for the collection, stabilization, and transport of an oral fluid specimen to be used for the detection of specific antibodies or analytes. Aware Messenger specimens may be tested with conventional laboratory-based immunoassays (ELISA) enabling high-throughput batch testing, automation, and quantitative results. The device can be used to collect oral fluid analytes for not only HIV antibodies, but also other screening application, such as cotinine (a metabolite of nicotine indicative of smoking) and cocaine. The company’s initial target for this product is for research use and to reference laboratories in the life insurance risk assessment market having the capability to self-validate assays employing the device.

SWOT Analysis

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.

Enhanced SWOT Analysis

Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:

  • How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
  • How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
  • How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
  • How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?

Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.

PESTEL Analysis

PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.

Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.

Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:

  • Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
  • Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
  • Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
  • Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
  • Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
  • Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?

IFE, EFE, IE Matrices

The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.

The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.

The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.

Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.

Porter Five Forces Analysis

The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:

  1. What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
  2. Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
  3. What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
  4. How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
  5. How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?

VRIO Analysis

VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:

  • Tangible resources
    • Financial
    • Physical
    • Technological
    • Organizational
  • Intangible resources
    • Human
    • Innovation and Creativity
    • Reputation
  • Organizational capabilities

The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:

  • Valuable?
  • Rare?
  • Costly to imitate?
  • Organized properly?
