DUBLIN, March 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6dwlm7/knock_out_mouse) has announced the addition of the "Knock out Mouse Model - Pricing Analysis" report to their offering.
Mice serve as appropriate study models for a variety of diseases because of their close genetic and physiological similarities to humans as well as the ease with which their genomes can be manipulated and analyzed. Knockout mice models are of paramount importance in biomedical researches which focus on finding cure for human diseases.
Market players are continuously focusing on innovations in mice models for research on various human diseases. Growing innovations and advances in mice models are providing increased options to researchers to conduct research activities in particular diseases, which is a major factor driving market growth.
Oncology knockout mice are in high demand, owing to the increasing number of cancer research activities and increasing innovation in mice models that are tailored to meet cancer research needs. Thus, the popularity and availability of cancer knockout mice has led to reduction in the cost of these models. In the present scenario, the availability of knockout mice models for rare diseases is low and the cost of these models is relatively higher as compared to knockout mice models for common indications such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and diabetes.
In addition, the type of the knock-out mice developed determines the complexity of the project and thus, the price of the knock-out mice model. Development of Cluster Knockout is highly complex as it involves knocking out of many genes at once. Thus the price of cluster knockout is higher than other types of knockout.
The demand & supply status of the knock-out mice also affect the pricing trend. For instance, Knockout mice models for cancer, cardiovascular diseases, neurological disorders, and diabetes are well-established, available in sufficient supply, and priced lower than the knockout mice models that address indications such as neurological disorders and rare diseases. Knockout models for rare diseases are in low supply as research in these fields is yet to gain momentum. With a steady increase in research activities and low supply of knockout models for these indications, the demand for customized knockout mice for these indications is likely to grow, thus leading to their high price.
The price also depends upon the type of agreements within the research organizations. The price is high in case the agreements are for commercial purposes and low if the agreements are for a non-commercial and non-profit purpose.
Similarly, some other factors like physiological characteristics, discounts, end users, among others affect the pricing range of the knock-out mice models.
